We got back from Vegas on Thursday. Had a lot of fun - the weather was great - it was in the 70's there during the day. It was 12 here on Thursday when we flew in - UGH. Went to UFC on that Saturday for DH's birthday. Saw one of the Cirque du Soleil shows that we hadn't seen on Monday. We're not big gamblers or shoppers so besides that we walked a lot, ate too much, drank too much, etc. That was my 4th time in Vegas. One thing I noticed this time was that so many people had babies/toddlers/preschoolers with them. Not so much school age kids (probably because it was during the school year). But in the hotel, on the strip, in the restaurants - there were so many little ones. I can't imagine taking a baby or toddler to Vegas. I mean - what fun would that be?? When the boys were very young we'd typically do a weekend in St. Louis or Chicago to a zoo/aquarium/kids museum/etc. We did take them to Disney a few times as they were growing up - my dad and step mom lived an hour away so we'd combine it with a visit to them. The first time we went to Disney Justin was 5 and afterwards we wished we would have waited a year or two - dh ended up carrying him half of the time and he doesn't even remember that first trip now.
How about you? Did you do extravagant vacations with your teens when they were babies/toddlers?
