We get our kicks on Route 66 (and a little bit in Vegas, but not much)

If you are ever roadtrippin' through Arizona on Route 66 you have to stop at the Snowcap. This was one of our favorite unexpected stops on the the trip. In fact, we liked it so much that we stopped again on the way home. 
Where else can you get an amazing chocolate malt and find a zombie head in a toilet? It's a win-win!
There is really nothing like this place. The family that owns it are so much fun and the decor can't really be accurately described with words.
And then there is Vegas....
If you're children can't see or can't read, this is a pretty good place for them. If not, well, prepare to do a lot of explaining. And the hardest thing for me to explain (anywhere, not just Vegas) is animals dressed as humans.
We stayed one night in Vegas at the Mirage to see the Cirque du Soliel Beatles Love show. The show was fabulous. The kids have been forced to learn every Beatles song ever sung, so they ate it up. They also ate up an all-you-can-eat buffet.
The smoke and the gambling and the prostitution and the alcohol aren't really classic kid stuff, but overall we had fun and thought it was worth the stop.
Nothing says father-daughter bonding like a trip to the city of sin.
