Another excellent report Sands, looking forward to the next one!
Unfortunately we really don’t have family in the area to leave them with. That would be great if we did
Thank you, wish I had been more consistent. Either busy with wife and twins or busy with older kids made it difficult to get the post in.i hate to be on the phone posting instead of visiting with them
Thanks for taking the time, this was an awesome report. I have a 9 and 6 year old and cannot imagine taking them to Vegas. I applaud your ability to balance family and the Vegas experience. Congrats on the win and hope this starts a streak of future winning trips.
Always enjoy your reports and appreciate the effort - nice win locked in.
Speaking of controlling Chaos, I am not sure if I replied but if or I did and can't remember it would be Sands Fan Clan Circus got in the way...or maybe the Ciroc Peach and Sodas?????
I started my trips to Vegas a couple months before Circus Circus opened ( Yes, I am old) and have been a few times since then.. When my older kids were youngsters we took them with their grandparents a week at a time. We started going annually when they were 11,9,7 and always had a great time. Back then there was a wet and wild on the strip which was a must do and the CircusCircus Adventure dome. We also hit all the kid things to do.
Also, we would stay at El Cortez or Plaza and they would play the video games while I played Black Jack. Every 20 or or so minutes, I would cash out and take the winnings for them to play games. One thing I remember to this day was taking the red eye cause we could afford it, arriving in Houston in the am and everyone starving. Off to Whataburger and when the food came....all heads on the table asleep. Then I still had an hour to drive with all asleep. Last red eye I took for pleasure.
I love taking kids to Vegas but requires a bit of balance and look forward to when they are your kids age and we no longer have diapers and porta pottys
Thanks so much, up until I hit this hand it was like, well maybe in six months or so I will be back cause I am burned out ($$). Now, I am looking how to swing the next trip. To be honest, the last wining trip have been a couple years. Long drought which I hope doesn't come back any time soon. I would love to hit a time when there is a meet up or slot pull. I really thought there might be one this time but I guess NYE was too busy.
Amazing what you are able to do with the kids....I go solo and dont have the energy to pack all that in anymore...Great report!
This was a great trip report! Loved all the pics!! Congrats on a fun and successful trip!
Thank you. I had to come back to rest up. I figured my wife had enough to last her a year but now she is talking about spring break to see Celine Dion on a free offer. With the twins and her mom.
Thank you jr, it was fun and I actually left out a lot of Picts that are not unique like the same room as last trip, Bacchanal, strip walk, etc. Eight days is a long time with the twins so we will probably cut down to 4 or 5 next time.
It was a lot of fun seeing my older kids and playing with them. Also them seeing the twins. It wasn’t successful until the last day with that Hail Mary hand but that’s the way it goes
Great TR with some really good wins! I don't have kids so I'm a bit awestruck by anyone who can manage Vegas with twin toddlers!
The Lobby Bar is definitely a new favorite for me, crappy pay tables notwithstanding. Good to hear they added a multiplay option.
I really like that bar especially since they have Ciroc Peach and I got quite a few hand pays there. Bartenders are great too
Thanks for taking us along. Really enjoyed the trip report.
Bummer, found out last night that I didn't use my seven star $500 celebration dinner during the last trip. I understood at check in that it would be a room folio to use against anything. It expires 1/31/19 and I won't get to use it.
No problem. You still have two weekends left this month. Enjoyed the report and congrats on the wins.
Thanks I wish I could squeeze another trip in but not in the cards unfortunately
