Laughlin, June 2014

We usually do Vegas each summer, but when deciding what to do this summer, Nathan mentioned Laughlin. I'd never been, so I decided it would be fun. We stayed at Harrahs which was great. It was very family friendly and low-key--just what we wanted. We spent the majority of the first day on the beachy riverbank. Hudson played in the water, played in the sand, chased and fed the ducks while mommy and daddy were able to relax. We pulled the lounge chairs down to the water and Hudson played around us.

After a few hours on the beach, we went to the pool. At first, Hudson wasn't interested in the water, but after accidentally falling in (Nathan and I were right there in the water to catch him) he didn't want to get out. He had fun jumping into daddy's arms in the water and getting thrown into the air. Eventually, he didn't want any assistance in the water and floated around kicking his arms and legs all on his own. When it was time to go, we pulled Hudson out to get dried off, but he wanted to make it known that he was not ready to go and he literally went over the railing in the "deep end" and climbed back in and floated around all on his own. It was so brave of him. After fishing Hudson out of the pool, we went back to the hotel room and all three of us took and two and a half long nap. For dinner, we went to a local Mexican food restaurant.


Day two started on the river, but Hudson wasn't as into it as before, so after about an hour we found ourselves at the pool. Hudson had a blast again.

For lunch, we went to the hotel buffet, then while Hudson and I napped, Nathan stayed down in the lobby and got some school work done.

After naptime, we went back to the pool and swam away the past pieces of the day. That night we went to dinner at Black Bear Diner and ate more than we should have.

Nathan and I both loved the trip. We got everything out the trip that we wanted. Hudson was so well behaved and showed a lot of growth and learned to take some new risks. He listened well and had a fun time. We look forward to going back sometime soon.
