Las Vegas Day 4

Spread the love


Tuesday morning, we walked Daddie over to the Monorail stop.

P1360616

Aiden really wanted to go and test drive the cars outside.

P1360617

You can see it in his eyes.

P1360618

Instead, we went to the The Secret Garden to check out dolphins and some other wild animals.

P1360620

There were many dolpins, Aiden was probably most interested in the one that played with a big ball.

P1360623

It was about 3 in the afternoon, and hotter than we preferred.

P1360625

Aiden and I were both drenched in sweat even though we weren’t out there for long.

P1360626

So we set out to find a shadier location to check out the dolphins.

P1360627

But many people crowded at the window where the dolphins would swim to.

P1360645

So we settled in a lonely spot for a few minutes.

P1360647

And when Aiden got restless we continued on our ways.

P1360649

Aiden roared with the tiger.

P1360655

Unfortunately, the real tiger wasn’t as lively.

P1360657

In fact most of the animals were busy sleeping.

P1360658

Even the striped tiger.

P1360659

We tried to get a better view.

P1360661

We stayed an hour and then went back to enjoy the pool with Daddie.

DSCN0294

Aiden wanted to run about in the water today.

DSCN0293

So we let him play a little before we placed his floatie in the water.

DSCN0299

First thing’s first, test out the water.

DSCN0298

Water is okay.  Pass!

DSCN0297

A girl named Evelyn came over to play with Aiden.

DSCN0304

Her family kept coming over to let her know it’s time to leave.

DSCN0313

She would leave and then come back.

DSCN0315

At first Aiden didn’t want to share his toy.

DSCN0317

But soon after I think he enjoyed the company.

DSCN0318

She was very friendly, even pushing Aiden’s floatable so he wouldn’t be at one boring spot.

DSCN0320

For some reason there were a few foods that Aiden didn’t care to eat while we were in Vegas.

DSCN0324

Yam and his favorite watermelon was on the list.

DSCN0326

Vegas really is Sin City, even for little ones!

DSCN0327

We’ve never let Aiden eaten fried foods before, and he’s gotten his hands on fries a few times already on this trip.

DSCN0329

But I couldn’t bring myself to take a picture of him in front of the slot machine.

DSCN0330

My co-worker, Lauren, had really wanted me to take a shot of that.

DSCN0334

But when Galen was getting his M card, I walked over to the desk, and the lady told me he wasn’t allowed there.

DSCN0339

I’m sure he would have loved it too – all the colors and lights!

DSCN0344

Oh well – I really didn’t want to get “in trouble” especially with the State of Nevada.

DSCN0348

I saw some signs that reminded me that it was against the law to do so.

DSCN0361

Not that without it I didn’t know it was illegal….

DSCN0363

This is Aiden’s second trip, and as usual Daddie did practically all the planning.

DSCN0365

Daddie tried very hard to find restaurants that were of quality and accepted little ones.

DSCN0366

Mommie worked extra hard at work so that we all could have our first domestic trip.

DSCN0367

Mommie and Daddie hopes that we could go on these mini trips to give Aiden different experiences.

DSCN0368

He’s just so perceptive of his new environment.

DSCN0369

His behavior isn’t always the best, but it provides another teaching/learning opportunity.

DSCN0370

Daddie got free show tickets this time around, but we are hoping to get free comps next time!

DSCN0371

How do we do that?

DSCN0374

By playing a lot of games.

DSCN0379

Hopefully by the time we rack up enough points the promotion will still be available.

DSCN0380

That’s probably when our next trip to Vegas will be.

DSCN0381

But Daddie wants to stay at a more centralized location.

DSCN0386

We didn’t make it the M&M store nor the Coca Cola store.

DSCN0395

That’s on our “to-do” list next time.

DSCN0396

Maybe we’lll even catch a short M&M movie, it would be a first for the whole family.

DSCN0401

We definitely plan to go back to Bouchon for their mussels, Aiden should be able to eat mussels then.

DSCN0406

He eats shellfish, but only crab, fish, shrimp and lobster so far.

DSCN0408

There are a few restaurants Daddie wants to try next time.

DSCN0409

Monta Ramen, shaved ice, and another Japanese sushi restaurant.

DSCN0411

But we most likely won’t be able to go to any steakhouses until Aiden is 5.

DSCN0414

As Daddie called numerous restaurants, and that’s what he was told.

DSCN0416

Daddie likes the steak houses as they serve foie gras!

DSCN0419

It’s a special treat, since we can’t eat in anymore in California.

DSCN0424

We also didn’t go outlet shopping this time.

DSCN0425

Daddie almost had a work disaster in Vegas.

DSCN0428

Lucky he noticed something was wrong, or he would have been walking barefooted.

DSCN0437

Instead he got to dress a little bit more casual to match his regular black sneakers.

DSCN0438

Bad luck, turns into pretty good luck.

DSCN0439

Haha, Aiden must be feeling bored.

DSCN0440

All of a sudden he is sitting in his floatable, very non-chalantly.

DSCN0453

It must be kind of hot as he kept wetting his hair.

DSCN0457

Now it looks like he actually went swimming.

DSCN0463

Haha.. such a silly boy.

DSCN0469

Looks like he did something he wasn’t supposed to do.

DSCN0470

Nope, it’s because he is teething and he’s hurting.

DSCN0471

His bites hurt a lot now since he’s got so many teeth.

DSCN0472

One time he was mad at me, and when I fed him he purposely bit down hard and quick.

DSCN0473

I had to explain to him that it wasn’t okay to do that.

DSCN0475

After a couple times, he finally understood what I meant.

DSCN0476

Again so he could have fun in the pool we pushed back our dinner schedule.

DSCN0479

The latest they would accept us was 6:30.

P1360667

We made it just in time.

P1360669

They were very difficult to find as they don’t have a sign.

P1360672

The outside lamp was all that indicated it was them.

P1360673

Tonight we will have omakase.

P1360674

The last time we ate omakase was in February.

P1360675

We went for the $120 course as we were both hungry.

P1360676

Daddie had champagne, only 2% alcohol.

P1360682

Let’s see if there is anything on the menu for Aiden.

P1360683

Why yes there is, sweet omlet!

P1360686

We have our first appetizer course as well.

P1360689

I was very impressed at first.

P1360691

Aiden loved the egg.

P1360693

It wasn’t enough.  Encore!

P1360694

Thirsty Aiden….

P1360703

of course gets apple juice.

P1360704

Very tasty.

P1360709

Now that he’s got a taste of his food, he doesn’t want to wait.

P1360710

Next part of our course sashimi.

P1360711

That is supposed to be 10 pieces.

P1360721

I’d say that’s a bit of a rip off.

P1360733

So the delight that came with the first dish, slowly diminished.

P1360735

Aiden was also acting up.

P1360736

We had to take him outside for a time out session twice.

P1360741

He was willing to drink water though.

P1360744

We gave him some cooked fish as well.

P1360756

We were also lucky that we had some snacks from Little Emma’s birthday party.

P1360758

But he kept throwing things on the floor.

P1360759

Daddie is going out for more sushi after this meal.  Lucky!

P1360761

Mushroom miso soup for Aiden.

P1360770

Aiden enjoyed the mushrooms and finished off the last drops of miso soup for Mommie.

P1360784

The waitress came over to ask us what dessert we would like.

P1360785

I didn’t quite like their dessert selection, one especially odd item was onion tofu.

P1360794

Come to find out, she meant almond tofu.

P1360796

Yes, her accent was the bad  And the value for the food in my opinion was almost just as bad.
