I mean swimming! Enjoying the pool and all it has to offer.
We've grown bored of the YMCA pool. Is that bad?
Since we were bored of the local pools, we decided to hit the hotel pools instead. They're more fun, anyway. Remember when we crashed The Golden Nugget pool? That was fun!
This year, we've put our sites on the best pool on the Las Vegas strip. Can you guess where that is?
Mandalay Bay, of course.
The hotel is REALLY strict about who they let in, because if they weren't, the whole city would be there.
The place has a HUGE wave pool, with a music stage in the shallow part- the hubs and I saw Tears for Fears on that stage a few years ago and it was incredible. In addition to the wave pool, there are four more pools surrounding the big one. There's also a lazy river nearby! Lazy is not the right word for it, though. It's more like "Bumper car inner tubes in really fast-moving water."
Seriously, the current is so strong my 5 year old couldn't even hold himself against it! We'd have to hold onto him because if we didn't, the current would pull him away.
Nice! Safety first, people! Yuk yuk yuk.
Not only that but, if you don't have a inner tube for yourself in the lazy river, your head is constantly getting bumped and smashed by kids on inner tubes screaming "EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME!"
Yea, watch out, you little fuckers. Quit bumping into me. I'm trying to be "lazy" here.
My kids had a blast, and there were lots of friendly visitors for me to talk to. If you hadn't noticed already, I'm a big time people person. I love to talk to random people wherever I go. And this day, like many others, we got the famous question....
That's when we get the glazed over, totally shocked look.
Mostly, I sat by the pool and sipped my pina coladas while the hubs and kids made a pass every few minutes in the lazy river. That's what housewives are supposed to do, right? The views were spectacular, and I had one of those rare moments where I tell myself...
"I cant believe I actually live here."
Oh, and did I mention it was 117 degrees that day?
