Las Vegas with Kids

Today I feel like crap. Some death virus has penetrated my body and decided to take hold in my throat and ears. I briefly considered cutting my throat out but then realized I would have no way to yell at the kids and without  my ability to use the word "no" my entire house would be burned to the ground in a matter of hours. I am sure in due time the illness will make its rounds among all the family members and I will get to reap its joys over and over.  I knew should have worn a gas mask on that plane last weekend (stupid recirculated air).   I decided that since it was warm out I would strip my kids down and let them play in some Tupperware filled with water (I catch them in the dog water all the time so why not give them something a bit more hygienic this time?) and  I drug myself  out of the horizontal position and on to the computer to see what was going on in cyber world.  And then I remembered! Today was the day my article was going to be published on Travel Savvy Mom! Hooray! My first feature article on a website that has actual legitimate writers who have been published in Smithsonian, O, and many different travel magazines. I am quite proud and I am hoping you will take the time to show me some love by clicking here and reading my article. Maybe leave a comment stating how I am so fantastic and should have a full time paid gig somewhere. Definitely check out my Platinum Hotel review while you are there. Its a fantastic choice when you are in Vegas with kids or a group of friends.  It sure would make this sickly, pathetic mom happy (insert violin music here)!

Congrats on your article. I do hope you feel better. My hubs has the same thing it sounds like and the doc put him on some strong antibiotics and steroids to get rid of it quick.

oh sorry about the illness, I know I just spent over 3 weeks with a horrid little bug at our house. And cool article, I've been thinking about going to Vegas with kid in tow...

Great article!! I honestly had no idea that Vegas had that much to offer children but now that I think about all the spots on the strip (the water fountains, the volcano and gondolas and all that other fun stuff) would be really fun for kids to experience! My dad and his wife live there and they're always bugging us to come visit but the thought of bringing the kids with us to Vegas seemed like a huge downer but after reading your article, it seems like it would actually be a lot of fun. I think my kids would love it!!

I'll have an award for you on my blog tomorrow (Thursday)
