There's nothing like swimming in January. The Lazy River was chilly since it's flowing, but the kids didn't mind, the pool was nice and warm and the hot tub was heavenly (it's huge for a hottub, goes around an island of palm trees).
We were passing by and had to stop, Sage was kind enough to pose with the restaurant named after her- lol
The year of the Tiger. We went to a quaint Chinese New Year Celebration at a nearby library, had I known, I would've brought their Chiongsam dresses. It was neat hearing many of the young Asian children speaking fluent Mandarin and English. I think the girls will get their Cantonese back quickly with some lessons, once they fully conquer English. They are reading so well lately! They've come a long way this year.
Bowling at SouthPoint, yup, we go to LV and bowl. SouthPoint is a fun family place in Vegas, for a casino/hotel anyway, it has a nice bowling alley, arcade, IMAX movie theater, good buffet and an indoor equestrian center.
Sophie won! the bumpers helped, but she did good. It was cute watching them bowl. After each time they rolled the ball, they stood still and watched it to the very end, then after a cheer or little "ohhh" they happily ran or skipped back to their seats, or someones lap.
There's so much to do and see here without spending a lot of money, just remember the blinders :).
Sophie checking out the ice pillar
As a designer, I enjoy the unique architecture and interesting designs around LV. Although it's not old and authentic, it's new, original, and neat!
The kids liked riding the tram one night to some large hotels and some malls on the strip
Paul & I- lol
On our last night, Paul and I had some nice "us time," while the kids enjoyed the game room at the resort and a good movie. Taking a stroll seeing the fountains at Ballagio (one of our songs was playing) and the ships at TI before heading over to the Venetian (beautiful hotel) to see "The Phantom of the Operah". It was awesome. The theatre, singing, acting, and special effects were sweet! It's worth the trip just for that. Thanks hon for a great romantic evening ♥
Next time we might take the kids to see the live show "The Lion King", heard it is fabulous. Has anyone seen it? The boys enjoyed the "Tournament of Kings" dinner show when they were younger, that's still going on at Excalibur.
It was nice coming home to clear skies, the smog has lifted. After getting home I started getting sick again and ended up with Bronchitis, down for a few days. I'm feeling much better now, hope Paul doesn't get it.
I didn't take my large Nikon, pictures are from my new Sony purse camera my sweety gave me for Christmas. Not bad for a small camera,♥ it!
