the sweetest girl offered to take the pics and she just sent them to me – love her
Ok so it’s been asked what’s my favorite place to take kids to in Vegas and my answer is well, all of them jk but see below for my review
Mandalay Bay- we stayed here Sunday night. Great wave pool, lazy river, nachos, sandy beaches. Negative plastic chairs, crowded, you have to pay $200 per chair if you want a cushion chair, have to be 48 inches to use wave pool
Four Season’s quiet, no smoking, they set your chair or “egg” up for you with towels, give you sunscreen, swim diapers, kick boards, Evian misters, drinking water is brought to you when you sit down and refilled continuously. Frozen desserts and fruit are handed out freely by staff. Breakfast served all day long, you have access to Mandalay pools, I could write a novel, its my favorite!
dating story– this is the hotel Dallin used to take me to when we were dating. Before we left for Vegas one time I remember my mom asking if he was ever “really” going to like me (more in terms of marriage vs just a fun time) and I remember saying “does it “really” matter? because I was young and I had time, although from the day I saw him at a Provo pool party I had wanted him. I distinctly recall replaying this conversation in my head at this very pool and for the first time ever getting nervous about Dallin dumping me or finding someone better. And agreeing with my mom that I really wanted a future with Dallin and I never wanted to get off this ride! So yes Shannon it did REALLY matter after all.
So glad things worked the way it did bc I’ve never met anyone like my husband 🙂
Hotel 3 I stayed there for work in Bakersfield California it was a Marriott – if you’ve been to one you’ve been to them all I say – with the exception of New Port Villas and Atlantis.
Hotel 4 Dallin had a friend in town who was staying at the Mirage so he let us come swim with him to give the kids a change of scenery. We love the Mirage, great padded chairs (free lol) , love how there is a CVS across the street, volcano show at night, very central on the strip so you can walk the strip easily, dolphins and tigers exhibit and experiences
Gift Shop Dallin
Dallins first job was working for his mother at her gift shop. She owned a casino gift shop in Atlantic City at the hotel her husband was the CFO at. So Dallin loves casino gift shops bc I think it reminds him of his angel mother. This is where he shopped with her growing up. So I am fully supportive of his gift shop addictions and let him do his thing (not that I have much of a say anyways lol) I shared him shopping because it really is an addiction lol and in a weird way I love this side of him. He’s so fun and easy going and lives in the moment.
