cwmi, that makes sense, the Missisippi River, then. We've had similar experiences in Las Vegas, but you're right, the scale was entirely different. And I didn't do too good a job of being non-judgmental about it, either. I was all like, how could the put that stuff here?! But I was on their turf, they don't bring their stuff in my neighborhood, so why was I bringing my kids into theirs? Down here, you can spend days in the Keys or South Beach with the kids, and not run into anything embarrassing if you get the kids back to the hotel by bedtime. So it was something new to learn, that some places don't have kid-friendly daytimes.
