Batch #3- The Mirage Experience

My parents were also in Vegas, but somehow never seemed to be captured on camera. My parents and I stayed at the Mirage on the Strip. This was probably my 5th or 6th trip to Vegas, and my 3rd or 4th time to stay on the Strip. So I've seen the sights and casinos. But it was my parents' first time to visit Sin City.
The Mirage is a great place for first timers to stay because it has several non-gambling and non-bar activities. Of course, they all cost big bucks, but it's fun at a Vegas price. We took the nephews to see the famed Siegfried and Roy Secret Garden, White Tigers and Lions. The Garden also has a dolphin habitat. The dolphin habitat is a "research facility" and not a performance park, so the dolphins don't do a Secret show of any sort. But they do have a baby dolphin!! So cute!! We had a good time looking at the animals and watching the dolphins.
Porter is only 2.5 years old and somewhere between a baby and a little boy. He still likes to be carried and sometimes he insists on walking. Unfortunately, he weighs the same as a ton of bricks and it isn't easy to carry him for very long. It was a long day and Porter decided he was ready to be carried some more. But we didn't have a stroller for the little sack of potatoes. So Natalie did the next best thing and borrowed a wheelchair from the park. I refused to help push her. It was just too... something.

    Hey, I said anyone could sit down and I would push! It didn't have to be me the whole time. But I will remember that you wouldn't push me, perhaps this will come back to haunt you one day.

  2. I wouldn't push your sham of a wheelchair, but I did chase your 2 year old (that rarely sat in the wheelchair with you) all around the park, if I recall...
