    Thank you all for the lovely comments!!

    So I’m up at 3am which is pretty standard with the ol jetlag but it’s not all too bad because I’m losing my ass and busting my daily bankroll pretty early, I’m actually getting a good amount of sleep compared to other trips, silver lining and all that

    Yesterday morning we took a Lyft to the airport car rental centre £15.60.
    Enjoyed breakfast at a family favourite Peppermill.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Went to Paris to pick up TR Diamond show ticket voucher and $100 celebration dinner voucher, thank you TR tier match
    (Although I ended up paying of it after all at Harrahs later in the night )

    We drove out to Target at Blue diamond, a must for every trip, stocked up on essentials and Halloween candy that you can’t get in the uk. Hubby forgot to pack sunglasses so a quick stop in the sunglass hut at the south outlets for some Ray bans.
    We returned to Mirage to regroup which is really me losing on the slots and the boys swimming!

    Later in the afternoon we walked to Paris to pick up the show tickets for Circus 1903 $74 incl tax and service fee for the third ticket.

    Bacchanal Buffet for dinner (after voucher $47 for 2 adults and 1 child)
    Diamond gets a free glass of champagne or mimosa. And to skip the long lines with the Diamond card was amazing!!

    Walked back to Mirage and stopped in the VIP lounge for a drink.
    Got my son and hubby settled in for the night and played slots and lost at Mirage and Harrahs, still early in the trip though so got time to turn things around. Although I’m quite lucky with my comps though, and spending time with the family in the sunshine is priceless.

    Thank you for following along, Vegas Vlog part 2 will be up soon, about to edit.

    You are so beautiful and have such a beautiful family. Love the videos, especially of the Peppermill, which I have never visited but always plan to do.

    I am staying at Encore again -- my new home away from home -- and I am thinking about just walking to the Peppermill for exercise in the morning. You said you wouldn't advise it but it seems like if you are on just on the strip it would be okay.

    In any event, looking forward to the rest of your posts!

    I'm sure the short walk wiould be fine in daylight Flowers. It's only 0.3 miles, I'd do it on my own, have done it before when there was a Tix4tonite in that area a few years ago. Before it moved to FSM.

    Enjoying the TR and videos. Looks like the Ray bans sent Jon from tired as hell to cool as hell. Hope your luck changes tonight.
