With their grandma by their side, Michael Jackson’s children had a splashing good time over the weekend in Las Vegas.

Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. “Blanket”), 7, were spotted at the Palms Casino Resort’s pool sipping on virgin strawberry-banana daiquiri’s on Sunday. They, along with three friends, dunked each other in the pool and swam around for more than two hours. Blanket, wearing a life preserver, even showed some of his moves, dancing on the edge of the pool before jumping in the water.

Katherine Jackson kept a close eye, accompanied by a friend and nanny, and smiled over the pool-side antics.

It wasn’t all fun in the sun, though, as the children dined in fashion, too. With their uncle Jermiane with them on Saturday night, the family had dinner at Vegas hotspot N9NE Steakhouse’s private dining room.

It may have seemed like just a quiet weekend at home to them though – the kids lived at the Palms Hotel with their father for about two months in early 2008.
