Las Vegas Day 3

Spread the love


Shark reef time

P1360433

But Aiden wasn’t very interested.

P1360437

We got there at 10:30

P1360438

We were basically done in 15 minutes and I had to force him to stay until 11:00

P1360444

Too close to his bed time.

P1360446

He was more interested in the people.

P1360449

In fact when he was playing with his toys at the hotel, he didn’t even want to leave the room.

P1360457

When did he become such a homebody?

P1360464

Normally, he would throw down his toys for a chance to go out, even if it were only the backyard.

P1360475

But it’s fine that he didn’t have fun there, at least it was free.

DSCN0109

And he had a chance at the pool today and with both of us by his side.

DSCN0111

Daddie put a “roof” over his head to keep as much sun away.

DSCN0114

It’s busier at the pool at this time (around 5:30 p.m.)

DSCN0115

We stayed for half an hour as we needed to rush to our dinner stop.

DSCN0116

He must be bored~

DSCN0119

Staying in one place for so long.

DSCN0123

Time to set out to the other side of the pool with Daddie!

DSCN0124

Let Daddie do the work, good exercise!

DSCN0125

Aiden must be thinking “Now that’s more like it!”

DSCN0126

All smiles again.

DSCN0127

I guess I better start looking into swimming classes.

DSCN0128

But he should be feeling good after his nap earlier today.

DSCN0130

He was such a cranky kid when we hung out with my friend, his wife and kid.

DSCN0131

So he’s definitely having a better evening.

DSCN0134

Later he found that the octopus can be removed.

DSCN0139

Then that kept him occupied for a while.

DSCN0140

Daddie said that they maintain the pool water well at MGM signature.

DSCN0144

So it feels extra nice to take a swim in it.

DSCN0148

It really is good to have Daddie join us.

DSCN0153

It was a rough morning/early afternoon.

DSCN0155

Driving was a definite challenge.

DSCN0173

Going from our hotel to Mandalay bay/parking took almost a whole hour.

DSCN0177

I look forward to the next time we go to Vegas and Daddie isn’t on a business trip.

DSCN0185

Sleeping at night hasn’t been a problem for Aiden.

DSCN0186

He would sleep about 9:30 until 7:30 in the morning.

DSCN0195

Which was good since I have been battling a cold and actually have some time to recover.

DSCN0196

It’s difficult battling a cold in Vegas, indoors you got the smoke and outside the hot air just kills your throat.

DSCN0197

While Daddie is working, Aiden would ask about Daddie every now and then.

DSCN0207

People don’t make much comments about Aiden when it is just him and I.

DSCN0217

But when we are out with Daddie, people are always praising how cute he is.

DSCN0218

Maybe I’m so focused when it’s just him and I, I wouldn’t hear people even if they said anything to me.

DSCN0219

Just a few facts about MGM Signature, it’s valet only.

DSCN0223

We would ask Aiden to be on the lookout for our car when we are waiting for them to bring our car to us.

DSCN0224

I think he knows the difference now between our car and a regular car out in the streets.

DSCN0227

When we left Mandalay Bay today, and I was searching for our car he pointed to it and said “o個度”

DSCN0230

But he also got confused after going to the dealership, and he thinks he can sit in cars on the streets.

DSCN0231

He’d walk over to it and want to open the door.

DSCN0232

That applies to other vehicles too, like bikes and scooters.

DSCN0235

It’s about time to head out.

DSCN0237

But after we take a few Daddie and Aiden pics first.

DSCN0238

We forgot to take a family pic….again.

DSCN0239

We’ll just have to try to remember next time!

DSCN0242

Daddie is happier than Aiden!

DSCN0254

For sure, Aiden has gone a few shades darker after this trip.

DSCN0258

Probably as dark as Mommie now.

DSCN0259

Daddie hadn’t eaten all day, but he wanted to spend time with Aiden at the pool.

DSCN0260

In order to spend a little time at the pool we pushed back our dinner to 6:30, it didn’t matter since no reservations.

DSCN0261

We are hungry and ready to eat!

DSCN0283

For dinner went off the strip to Goyemon.

P1360493

But it was good they let us sit at the sushi bar, so we didn’t have to wait.

P1360494

But surprisingly the uni taste better than it looks.

P1360496

At least there wasn’t a bad smell or after taste to it.

P1360498

Aiden gets to enjoy all you can eat as well, with $3 extra charge.

P1360499

I am no fan of a place that gives you more rice than fish for sushi.

P1360500

Aiden wasn’t being particularly cooperative during dinner either.

P1360501

We tried our best to keep him occupied and calm.

P1360504

Ahi poke… would have been great if there wasn’t all that seaweed (not my cup of tea)

P1360505

At the end I saw there was sashimi salad, but it was too late.

P1360507

It was a disappointing meal.

P1360509

Aiden did drink some water, which was good.

P1360511

But he kept throwing things on the floor when he didn’t want or need it anymore.

P1360520

It was a pain since the seat/bar was so high.

P1360521

Aiden wanted to try and eat the lemon.

P1360522

Haha…. I told him no……

P1360524

But he didn’t listen.

P1360525

And sucked on it more than once.

P1360529

Shocker!

P1360531

Time for dessert.. one of the better part of the meal.

P1360532

Daddie got red bean and lichi flavor.

P1360534

Mommie went for the more traditional green tea ice cream and vanilla mochi.

P1360536

Aiden ate almost half of a mochi.

P1360540

And when Mommie ordered Yuzu sorbet

P1360543

Aiden ate almost the whole thing.

P1360546

So we got another order!

P1360548

Otherwise I would have gone home crying…yes I am being a little dramatic there.

P1360549

That’s a lot of ice cream for Aiden for one night.

P1360550

But no coughs afterward, he must have needed to quench his thirst.

P1360551

Full but not satisfied!

P1360552

After dinner we didn’t go right back to our hotel room.

P1360554

Instead we walked over to MGM.

P1360557

Aiden loves the moving walkway.

P1360562

But when he wasn’t on it, he wasn’t motivated to walk.

P1360568

 

He kept wanting to go on the moving walkway, and opposite direction.

P1360571

He loved to walk over and view the bicycle.

P1360578

A salesperson at Sugar Factory came over to explain how the lollipop “holder” works.

P1360580

Lollipop? Too much sweets for Aiden!

P1360581

So that’s a NO, not on the shopping list.

P1360589

It’s nice to go walking after dinner.

P1360590

We can’t really relax on the walkways, as we have to be on the lookout for other walkers and step aside for them.

P1360592

Along the way, Aiden would want to sit on the benches.

P1360601

We can tell he is tired because he can’t walk right.

P1360602

Now we can finally relax.

P1360610

Good thing Aiden likes the elevator, no battles to get back to the room.
