Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

We've eaten here a lot and I've never been sick after eating at these two places. (I just said never...hopefully not jinxing myself here)

Craving at the Mirage mirage.comis a buffet we have enjoyed pre and post gluten diagnosis. This is your health so speak up and ask the host or one of the cooks to speak to a chef about what is gluten free and what is not. The chef will give you a quick tour which is very helpful. Don't be s…
