Our check out time was 11:00 AM but with all the stuff we took from the RV to the hotel we barely made checkout. One of the hotel staff even rudely entered our room uninvited to make sure we were checking out. Our first stop was Costco where we planned to get gas and have lunch. The gas part went well and I was thrilled to fill up at $2.99 a gallon. We were paying up to $4.10 a gallon in California and with a 40 gallon tank that $1 a gallon difference is more than enough for a decent dinner. Lunch though was a bust, no samples, no food court. Instead Holly made us instant noodles in the RV.
Our plan for the day was to go to the Las Vegas Children’s museum. It is a vast three story place with many great areas and activities for kids. Anyone with small kids going to Las Vegas should not miss it. Olivia loved it, of course. She went through the water room, the pirate ship, the theater, the four story tall jungle gym, built a parachute, lifted a car but it turned out her favorite activity was to mine for coal. Go figure. At $15 per person, including kids it is not cheap but well worth it. Meanwhile Holly was able to enjoy a few hours alone time.
We left the museum when it closed at 5 and when we got back to the RV we notice that the $5 all day parking was good through 8:00 AM the next morning so we just stayed the night. I was still tired from walking around the strip for hours the day before then spending all day chasing Olivia around the Children knocked me out and went to bed right after dinner and was asleep by 8:00 pm.
