Friday the hubbs and I had this brilliant idea that he would leave work a couple of hours early and we would head to LA to spend the night. We'd stay at a hotel using Marriot points and play in the pool, go to the aquarium and look at sharks, see what the LA beaches had to offer, enjoy a snow-cone or two and make it home in time for nap.
A couple of things we didn't consider.
1. LA traffic
2. Toddlers don't really like to sleep in hotels and after a night of non-sleep much of the trip would actually look a little more like this than the idyllic family vision that we had planned.
