shark reef

After we said goodbye to Ames and the kids, we made our way to Mandalay Bay where Adam was going to a flooring convention.
How nice is it that the Shark Reef was in Mandalay Bay too?
The boys and I went there while Adam went to talk with his sales reps.

Smiling Komodo Dragon- he's huge!
Apparently he has at least 50 different kinds of bacteria in his mouth- seven of which are poisonous!

The best part was walking through these tunnels with fish and sharks swimming around and above us!
We sat on the ledge for a while and just watched.

And I always love watching jellyfish- they look so calming and interesting.

There were divers swimming with the sharks too- they were really cool to watch.
Almost as cool as the fish and sharks!
They even waved at the boys a few times.
Afterwards we got to feel a sample of their metal mesh suits to protect them from shark bites.
Making the water sign wiggle. 
I took the boys to lunch and tried to share food, but ended up spending $12 on just the boys' drinks! GULP.
Good thing I had water. 
We finally found Adam and drove- you guessed it- to a record store.

After a looooong stop at a record store- we started the 6 hour drive home.
It's a beautiful drive so I was glad to do it in the light this time.
And I finally broke out the sunglasses for the drive home.
They weren't needed the whole weekend in Vegas!

Sleepy guys.
