Our day started really wonderfully with a visit from the Massaros who were on their way to Utah! Then, josh went to the convention and the kids and I boarded the monorail to the strip. Our hotel (Embassy Suites) was a ten-minute walk from the convention center and monorail station. Kids 5 and under are free! I bought both josh and I a 24-hour pass for $10 each. (One ride is usually $5). The trains run about every 7 minutes and have a great view of the backside of many hotels. The kids loved it! We rode to MGM, the furthest south stop, to get to the M&M world store. This store is, in my opinion, really lame, but the kids were excited. 😉 from there we trekked across the strip and into New York New York. I thought jacob would be really impressed with the outdoor street feel, but he wasn’t really.
From NYNY we intended on walking back across to MGM and to meet josh in the monorail station. The bridge was under construction, so we walked from Ny to Excalibur, to something else, to MGM and then all the way through that massive hotel to the train. Jackson fell asleep on the way. Josh’s foot was hurting, so we ended up heading back to the hotel together and having nap time and then pool time.
We set out again to have dinner at Caesar’s Palace at the Gordon Ramsey pub. Josh and I used to watch a lot of Gordon’s tv shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, and we were excited to try beef Wellington for the first time. The place had a long wait, we explored the mall at Caesar’s, and when we eventually sat down we found out that beef Wellington was no longer on tr menu. We ended up having food court tacos. 🙂
