We'd had the idea for a while - a quick trip to Las Vegas to eat some good food, hit up some outlet malls and then head home. After some back and forth we decided to make it work as the tip-off to the boys second summer 3 weeks off track.
Long story short - it was one of those ill-fated trips from the beginning. I'll spare you the details but they involved heat (114 degrees in the shade), poorly planned sleeping arrangements, and two parents who couldn't get on the same page.
Either way, the kids had a good time. We ate chicken fingers at Raising Canes, went to the Hoover Dam, shopped, ate at Shake Shack (which Elliott declared to be the best hamburger of his life) and sweated a lot.
