Girls' Vacation

This year we took our first four-generational girls' vacation to Las Vegas: Great-grandma, Gammy, Me, and my two girls. We had a blast!

My mom and I drove and Grandma jumped an airport shuttle from Arizona to Vegas. We arrived Sunday and Grandma on Monday. But the time we got up and dressed and ready for the pool on Monday, Grandma's shuttle was there.

We stayed at Cancun Resort, Las Vegas, a few miles off the southern end of the strip. It was relaxing for all of us. The girls enjoyed playing in the pools and Samantha loved the water slides. Alyssa was a few inches too short for the water slide. She cried a lot at first but they have a Mayan waterfall, so we played in that instead.

We did drive down to the strip once in the day and walked around for a little while. The girls were having a hard time in the heat--107 degrees--so they didn't last long. But we did go back at night and enjoy one of the Cirque de Soleil shows, Mystere. It was amazing and I loved that none of them had seen Cirque before.

My girls can't wait to go back. They've got it planned for next summer already!
