Our family of three hit the streets of Las Vegas a few weeks ago for the Monster Jam world Finals! I know some may think we are crazy and taking this monster truck thing a bit too far but honestly, those are the only thing our kid plays with.......and an excuse to go to Vegas. I was pleasantly surprised at how kid friendly Vegas has become. I did my research before and came prepared with a list of free and a few paid activities. The day we got there we checked into our hotel (we stayed at Bally's which I was worried about but ended up great) then headed to to Mirage for the Sigfried and Roy Secret Garden. Easton was over the moon with the dolphins, white tigers and lions, jaguar and white tiger cubs. We ate at Treasure Island that night where we watched the pirate ship sink right from our dinner table at this BBQ place. Best seats in the house.
On Friday we got up and did a little more exploring before heading to the stadium for the Pit Party. We got to see all the trucks up close and personal, meet a few of the drivers and pick up a souvenir or two. We then headed back to the hotel for a little snooze before going right back out to dinner then the main event! Easton sat on our laps for three hours watching the show which is a record for him!
All in all it was a wonderful trip with some much needed family time for the three of us. As long as the monster truck craze continues we will be back next year.
