On the last day of our trip, we woke early and started our drive to Mount Charleston, for a fun day in the snow. We were all so excited about this because not only was it the first time for all of our kids to see snow, but it was the only thing that Aria wished for Christmas. I remember my first time seeing snow and the feeling of awe… I could see the same thing in my kids. Aria was in heaven, she absolutely loved it and didn’t wanna leave. She still keeps asking if we can go see the snow again.
After all the playing and building up an appetite, we decided to have lunch at Shake Shack in Park MGM, followed by Hershey’s Chocolate World. That evening we took the kids back to New York, New York to ride the Big Apple Coaster and Arcade.
We all got very sad knowing that we’d have to wake up at 4 am to return our car and catch our flight back home. This was one of the best and most memorable trips that we’ve taken and I will treasure it forever.
On our second to the last day, we took it a little easy in the day and lounged around the hotel room, ordered lunch, and got some naps in before going to Downtown LV that night. We had dinner at Triple 7 sports bar in the Mainstreet Station hotel.
After dinner, we sent the kiddos to the arcade while the adults hit the casino. Kahele won some money on the craps table, I lost money in the slot machines which means it’s time to go back to the hotel room and sleep.
On New Year’s Eve, we checked out of our hotel room and headed over to my sister’s house. The prices of hotel rooms skyrocket on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, so I was so happy when we had the option to stay with my sister. Before heading over to her house we did a little shopping at the outlets. My best friend Hina flew into Vegas that day so we did some shopping together and we all met up at Tasha’s. Tasha invited Hina and her daughter to also stay because they had plenty of room. Honestly, just chilling at my sister’s house was exactly what we needed.
That night we headed to another bestie’s house. Sarah owns a restaurant and she was so nice to cater our food for that night. We were able to catch up before heading back. Back at my sister’s, we started a series called Yellowjackets on Showtime. We spent the next couple of days binging on the series while cuddled up on the couch.
