    Day 3 finish

    After lunch we headed back for the twins nap and facial for the ladies. I got the twins down then caught up on work. Seems the facial was a real hit but we had to walk back to the spa to get the TCs on the purchase.

    Nanny showed up right on time and we were off to Circus Circus to return the rental. MIL said the kiddos really had fun with the nanny doing crafts so we are thinking on a future trip we would definitely use them again.

    We got to BLT and I realized I left the 20% coupon. Back to the room to loook but no luck. I stopped by the VIP checkin and they gave me another no problem. The coupon applies to food and alcohol so really a good deal.

    We split a bacon appetizer, Pee soup, potato and ribeye. All were very good but beware of the bread they bring out first. It was so good I kept eating and was full before the steak. No problem leftover steak was twins breakfast next day.

    Nanny left at seven so we saw her off then u was back down stairs for a cigar and finish my points at the Lobby bar

    Also tried a little BJ but it was brutal. [​IMG]

    Nice hits - keep it going! I agree about the bread at BLK. Sometimes I just sit at the bar, have a drink and a popover. Delish. Hope you and the fam have a great day today.

    Day 4 recap

    Slow start this morning but kiddos were up and moving so no choice. Walked to Bellagio to see the conservatory but in between exhibits so we missed year of the pig. Such a long walk but we saw a couple items they hadn’t taken down.

    Brunch was Bacchanal. Texted my sone and got a request to eat a lot of bacon. Not sure why but here it is. We ate s Lot and it took about 90 minutes. I never get my money worth so glad it was week day price and not weekend. $15 difference. Everyone one enjoyed and were stuffed

    The crew went back for naps and I stayed behind to play some. I tried my fav machine by the restroom but no luck at all. Then rotunda triple play...nope. Tried a bunch of slots before heading to the lobby bar

    Lobby bar hit on the second or third hand. After that chatted with a guy from Atlanta who was here for his wife’s conference. He tagged along and drank/gambled while she was in conference

    Walked back to Cromwell to see our bartender friends and play a bit. Not good at all but visit was good

    Back to the room to watch twins while ladies went to Celine Dion. Guess who fell asleep from 7-11? Yes I napped with the kids. Back down to hit TCs for the day and have another cigar. Sorry same as before and I forgot to take a picture. A couple jackpots

    When u checkin it is in the little packet they give you. There was also a 20% off for the burger brassiere but I didn’t see it until today. We ate there yesterday so missed an opportunity

    We have settled on Bally’s cause the rooms are larger and my host can usually get me a great room. Last three stays were in a suite with adjoining room. Lots of space for kiddos to run around.

    Nice report and wins! We took our three kids to the Artsy Nannies drop off location a few years ago. They enjoyed playing while we had lunch at Tommy Bahamas. That same trip we had booked one of the nannies to come to our hotel, but I overdid it at the pool that day, so it never happened. :rolleyes: They used to allow kids up to 14 for the hotel nanny, but I couldn't find that on their website when I checked recently. Kids are getting older, so not sure if we'll ever try it. Cool that you guys did it for the twins!

    Cheers!

    Tring. Just didn’t happen this trip. Last two trips I had Hail Mary hands on the last day but not this time. Absolutely a fantastic trip as the ladies got to enjoy shows and facials which means I get to come back. We followed the detailed itinerary except the last meal yesterday. Everything fell in place

    It is really a good service. We asked for the same nanny both days but she had a family emergency so we had two different ones. Kids had a good time and will do it again. My wife was able to hang out with me and relax

    I love how you take your kids and mother-in-law with you to Vegas. Just shows that it can be done!!! Facials and Celine Dionne would get me to Vegas too. Thanks for posting - enjoyed the report.

    Thank you. Wife and I were talking last night now much MIL helped with the kiddos and took the load off mom. It was worth the ticket, room, facials etc. for my wife to have a more enjoyable trip. We've booked the Seven Start event in August and I was thinking solo but now she is sounding like a family trip again

    We haven't stayed at Caesars in a couple years so I am not sure. Definitely a nice deal, basically covers your tip
