    5 COVID Safe Things to do this Halloween Season in Las Vegas

    We are in the midst of Halloween season; however, this year is much different from normal. Usually, I’m getting ready to go to trunk or treats during the month, and trick or treating on Halloween night. Halloween is even on a Saturday this year. I figured it would be a long day of on and off trick or treating. Unfortunately, COVID is still a problem. In addition, we have a few high risk people in our family to worry about. I wanted to find some things we could do that are still safe to participate in.  We will be skipping trick or treating all together. I won’t even be handing…

    A Weekend at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

      My family and I recently spent a weekend at the Westgate Resort and Casino here in Las Vegas. I was nervous at first with everything going on. However, after I saw their WestgateCARES program I knew we’d be safe staying. Honestly, we needed a good Vegas staycation. It’s been several anxiety filled months. We definitely needed a weekend getaway. “WestgateCARES is our enhanced health and safety plan, developed in response to the current COVID- 19 pandemic as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of all our guests, Team Members and the communities we work and live in.

    Family Friendly Las Vegas: The Flamingo Wildlife Habitat

    Last month my Mom came to visit. Whenever she is here we always stay on the Las Vegas Strip as a family. Check out my tips for staying on the strip with young children. One of our favorite things to take the kids to is the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat. I always liked going before having DJ and Brooklyn, but now I love it even more. There is something so magical about seeing something through your little one’s eyes. It is definitely going to be somewhere we go at least once or twice a year when my Mom comes into town.

    Ethel M’s Cactus Garden Holiday Lights

    One of my favorite places to go see every year since we moved to Las Vegas is Ethel M’s Cactus Garden holiday lights. It is one of my favorite holiday tradition that we started together. I love that we bring our little ones now too. It is so  beautiful to see their eyes light up in awe at all the beautiful lights. The Cactus Garden is open to the public for free all year round, but from November 6 to January 6 they light up the entire garden with Christmas lights. The garden opens every day at 8 am, but the lights don’t go on until the sun goes down. During…
