Last week we took off on a Monday night and headed to Las Vegas. I always hesitate taking my family to Las Vegas because it can be a crazy place to be, but we found a great La Quinta in Summerlin and then spend all day Tuesday at Wet’n Wild Las Vegas. They had a beautiful city park right next to the water park where we ate lunch and got our suits on. Then we headed to the park. The first thing I loved about park was they had a huge station dedicated to sunscreen. I didn’t have to use ANY of my own sunscreen!! It was awesome!
After we lathered up we found some shade in the back area where there was a lot of grass. The trees are still little back there, but we had just enough shade for our family. After that we split up and I took the little guys to “Cookoland” That’s what my kids named the kid area. There are tons of slides and a little kid area of slides that go into a small pool. There aren’t any wading pools, which my little boys really wanted, but it was still a lot of fun! The big kids first slide was this huge slopped slide that about scared me to death seeing my tiny 7 year old go off of it, but he LOVED it. The kids finally got me to go on a slide, but for the most part I lazied in the lazy river and played in the wave pool, when it wasn’t wavy with the little kids and ran around in cookoland with the little kids! It was a really fun day for all!One tip, Vegas is HOT, so wear flip-flops as you are walking around. We weren’t used to that so we kicked off our shoes by our towels and started running around barefoot….OUCH! We about burned our feet.
