On Sunday afternoon we left to go to Las Vegas. We had told Harper that we were going to go swimming on vacation, so she was constantly asking to, "go to the beach." She calls all kinds of swimming going to the beach. Every time we stopped she asked if we were at the beach. Since we didn't leave LA until around 2 in the afternoon, we got to the hotel too late to go swimming so I think Harper endured the longest wait of her lifetime. After all of that, I didn't even get a photo of us at the pool.
On Day 1 we spent some time walking on the strip since it wasn't outrageously hot. It was very bright outside, so we got Harper some stylish shades.
On Day 2 we started out at the Lied Children's museum.
And made art projects.
That afternoon we went to an aquarium which was probably the best part of the trip. Harper really wanted to see the sharks and didn't really want to look at anything else until we found them.
I loved the jelly fish. Pretty amazing.
After that we headed toward M&M world. On the way there, we saw an old friend. We saw this very same guy when we took my sister Kara to breakfast for her birthday when she was visiting us in LA last year. I guess he moved to Las Vegas.
That night I started some laundry in our hotel (the washer was in the room where the kids were sleeping) and put the kids to bed. When I came back to put the clothes in the dryer, I opened the door and heard Harper making some very fake snoring noises. And then I heard some crinkling sounds. Harper had found her bag of M&Ms during the night and was pretending to be asleep so I wouldn't figure it out. When Tom and I went to take them from her, she fessed up and said, "Harper has M&Ms in her mouth." Yes Harper, we noticed.
