Hey Folks! I started this blog before pinterest came along, or before I found it, at least. A lot of the posts here are merely links to things I wanted to remember. I need space on my account, so if you find something you like, open the link and then pin it quick, as I will be deleting the posts that are not my original ideas.

Road Trip Vegas to SLC

We are anticipating a trip to Las Vegas in a few months. I know the flight would only be an hour and a half, but with 2 kids under 4 to keep happy in a busy airport, the close quarters of an airplane, the costs of airfaire, plus the amount of luggage I tend to pack when traveling with kids... I think a road trip may be the more relaxed way to go. Here are the initial results of my planning.

Travel tools & tips
  • Calculate the Cost of driving With this calculator I estimated it would cost us about $100 in gas roundtrip
  • Doing a check in flight rates, it would be at best, $120 per person after taxes, not to mention parking fees and the drive to the airport from our home.
  • I better start watching the sales for travel treats! I suspect we will spend about $50 in snacks, meals, and fun treats.
