We were all so excited to have the opportunity to fly to visit family this summer. Zane and I have a lot of family and friends living in Arizona, including our parents, so this was a great time to see everyone. We decided to take the train to the airport to avoid paying crazy parking fees while we were gone for a couple weeks. The kids loved this:
We made it to the airport, got through security, then waited for our plane. Brayden had never flown before and Bryson and Ashlyn hadn't flown in over 6 years so they were all full of anticipation and excitement!
We knew we were landing in Las Vegas late at night so Zane and I decided to stay a night in Vegas before driving to Lake Havasu. We woke up and let the kids swim for a while.
We had plans for an early lunch at a big buffet in Vegas so we let the kids have a small (unhealthy) snack for breakfast. Really we just used some of the snacks that were in our carry on bags:
After our quick "breakfast", we drove over to the M&M World to show the kids some of the fun places that Zane and I remember from all our visits to Vegas:
There were so many M&M options so we had to narrow it down and let Bryson and Ashlyn each pick out 2 kinds:
There were street performers everywhere, which Bryson thought was so cool!
After M&M World and the Coca Cola building, we headed across the street to the Hershey store:
This store had the Statue of Liberty made out of licorice and another made out of chocolate:
And their wall of Jolly Ranchers was huge:
After spending the morning around Vegas, it was time to get some lunch at the buffet and then make the drive to Lake Havasu. We had a lot of family anxiously awaiting our arrival!!
