My parents have been visiting this week, and our planned getaway to Bellingham (we have family friends there) fell through. We had so much fun in Portland a few weekends ago, that we've decided to drive back down for the weekend and spend a few more days. My parents will be able to leave for their roadtrip back to California from there.
We leave tonight after dinner. We'll get the kids nice and sleepy, do their regular bedtime routine and then get them in the car and tell them it's sleep time. That should work, right?!
We booked a last minute room through Priceline and ended up at Hotel Monaco (we stayed there years ago when it was the 5th Avenue hotel, so I'm excited to see the renovation). Wanting to avoid the two twin beds fiasco we had in Vancouver, my husband called this afternoon to secure a room with two queen beds & was told they were all out. They were willing to upgrade us to a suite with a king bed for an additional $20/night though, not bad!
