Las Vegas

We took a long Thanksgiving break this year.  Our school system took the entire week of Thanksgiving off and so Bonnie's preschool did also.  This gave us a full week of vacationing with Grandpa & Grandma McLean.  The kids couldn't wait to go. 

I planned an outing for every day because the kids would just get restless if we didn't do something.  It was also a good idea I planned activities because it was freezing in Vegas and not a lot of fun playing at the park.

Our first day there took us to the Atomic Testing Museum.  It was so cool but I didn't take a lot of photos, it's more of an adult museum with a lot of great stuff to read.

Our second day there took us to the Lied Discovery Children's Museum.  This museum was awesome.  All three kids had a blast and we didn't leave until temper tantrums didn't stop.

Bonnie & Chas had a blast flying a plane and occasionally I heard them blasting off into space!

Charlotte had fun doing her own thing most of the time.

One of her other favorite activities was trying to tackle the stairs.

One of the favorite activities was the bubble station.  There were all kinds of things to do there.

Even Charlotte had fun playing with the bubbles.  Although I think she just enjoyed the taste!
Yes that is Charlotte's little hand.

Upstairs there was this cool seat that you could put kids in and use a pully to hoist them up.  If the kids were older they could do it themselves.  Behind Charlotte is another cool toy the kids spend a ton of time playing at. 

Really this place was so fun and we would of stayed longer but I forgot sippy cups.  Take sippy cups so your kids can last longer.  The best part for parents was that the discovery center had benches for the adults to just sit and watch.  But all the toys were probably as much fun for us as them.

Thanks for helping do our Christmas vacation planning for us :-). Sounds like something Joshua would love as well. I definitely want to hear about the train ride you mentioned on FB, too!

Looks like fun! I love that the museum is called LIED!

Spelled "Lied" and pronounced "Leed." And Joshua will definitely get to do the train ride in Boulder City!
