Viva Las Vacation

Hanging in Downtown Las Vegas

School starts tomorrow… So I figured I should post some photos of our summer vacation.  I’m not going to lie, I’m bummed summer is over, it was not near long enough… But we made the most of it.  The kids had never been to Las Vegas, Nevada, so we loaded up the car and headed for the desert.

I have a few travel tips I learned from our journey.  First, you can get a deal when you use Expedia… But if anything goes wrong you’re pretty much on your own.  I paid extra for a room in the pyramid at the Luxor, the kids really wanted to stay in it!  When we checked in they told us they had no rooms in the pyramid and we would be in the tower… I showed them my Expedia reservation but they said the site had no power to specify we receive a pyramid room.  ( I have been fighting with Expedia since my return, but they’re basically just giving me the runaround…. Lesson learned.)

And finally, (although I took about 2500 photos… these are just a taste, but it’s going to take me a long time to get through them) don’t forget to take lots of photos.  We put together photo books of all our adventures and the kids love them.
