Little guy and I did a lot of walking the strip over our two day visit!  Best time for us was early morning when others are hung over, we were up to walk a fairly empty strip.

It was nice to stretch the legs and get a bit of morning exercise in.  Our son was/is so nosy and fascinated with everything so he liked looking around at the new environment.

We ended up walking inside through part of the strip but mostly outside.  There were plenty of elevators so I could go over the pedestrian walkways with him in his stroller or I could manage fine on the escalator too. I made sure too have a bag full of snacks and water and extra diaper or two just in case.

Our son really liked the floral displays at Continue reading

We arrived to the Bellagio via taxi.  There was quite a bit of traffic at the resort entrance.  We were met by a bellman immediately and offered assistance for our bags. We decided we could handle our bags and waived off any further assistance.

Las Vegas 2017 Introduction: Bringing Baby to Vegas

My wife had another business trip to attend. This time in Las Vegas! She would be gone three days and two nights.  I admit that I immediately became nervous about how I was going to be able to handle lil guy on my own!?! I could handle the day but the nighttime, what if he got up at (2AM) as he sometimes does and wanted his momma and I couldn’t console him?! I pictured my self up all night frustrated and going into work looking like a zombie. Well we quickly solved that dilemma by tagging along with mom for her trip!!! Whew!! Crisis averted  🙂

Two free nights at the Bellagio and my wife’s airfare paid by her employer I just had to worry about getting me and baby to Vegas and back.  That was easy as she booked her flights on Southwest which has nonstop service to Las Vegas from MKE.  I simply booked my plane ticket (on her flights) using my Southwest Rapid Reward points.


25,501 Rapid Rewards points and $11.20 later my ticket was booked

I then called Southwest’s customer service phone number to Continue reading
