We Went WaffleS Cafe Crazy in Las Vegas

Recently my mom moved to Las Vegas from here in Southern California.  I thought she was a bit crazy for moving away from this beautiful California weather, and her absolutely adorable grandkids, but since we travel to Vegas a couple of times of the year, maybe it won’t be so bad.   The nice thing, my mom and stepdad are discovering some really great places to visit in Las Vegas, especially fun places to take the grandkids, like Waffles Cafe.
