Kid Friendly Vegas Exists

 Summer 2014 is flying by and we haven't gone anywhere. A staycation is great but I needed to get out of our zip code. We decided to take a last minute road trip. The boys had never been to Sin City. A family trip to Vegas seemed questionable however midweek you can find a nice hotel in Las Vegas for under $100.
 The drive was long. We talked the whole way, I forgot how fun car games can be.

 We wanted to find a hotel that had a good pool since we would be doing more swimming than gambling. I didn't want a hotel that was in the middle of the strip. We stayed at the Tropicana. The Tropicana has a large pool perfect for cannonballs. At it's deepest point is 4 1/2 feet deep.
 We walked over to New York, New York to see the roller coaster and the Hershey's store
 At night we drove to South Eastern Ave. for my favorite brick oven pizza. The original Grimaldi's is in New York. We ate the pizza so fast I didn't get a picture*. After pizza we went across the street for custard. Nielsens Frozen Custard is amazing! We don't have anything like it in Southern California. If you are in Las Vegas you have to go to Nielsens. Nielsens' custard comes in 3 flavor, Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla.
* The only reason I have a picture of the custard is we got seconds. 
Our trip was so fun and relaxing that we are hoping to go again before summer is over. Vegas, Baby
The best thing about Las Vegas according to D...
The last time we were in Las Vegas without the kids we saw The Beatles Love show. Wish we could have seen it again.
