We had a late flight into Seattle, and our traveling was uneventful. We rented a car and drove to our nearby hotel. We had breakfast in the lobby the next morning, then it was time to get the vacation started in earnest! First stop – we had a sightseeing cruise in Seattle.

It was spring break, and we were headed to Vegas! While planning the trip, we decided that we would like to have a date-night, and after looking into babysitting options, discovered that it would cost about as much as bringing along an extra person. So we invited Brian’s mom to join us!
Brian had been in San Francisco all week, and was going to be there the following one as well. So the kids and I were coming for a long weekend visit! It worked out well as they already had Friday off from school anyway.
Unfortunately, a snow storm was moving in, and I got nervous about our ability to make it to Denver, so I checked the kids out of school a little early on Thursday to give us some extra time for the drive, and hopefully be able to beat the worst of the storm.

The adventure started at the airport. Where Owen asked if “where we are going is on a different planet?” LOL! A guy sitting next to us couldn’t help but laugh. Although, Owen may have been on to something, Laguardia airport DID feel like another planet in many ways.
We were trying to be economical and take the city bus. But it took us a rather long time, with 6 suitcases in tow, to find it. And then the bus driver apparently decided that his shift was over when we were still over a mile from our hotel, and kicked everyone off! So we gave off and hailed a cab to get us the rest of the way.
We got check in at the Exclesior Hotel, and made it to our dinner reservation just in time. I had picked it because it was supposed to be kid friendly, and sure enough, Cars was playing in the booth.
