to leave for Southern California tomorrow. the kids and I will drive to Vegas then make our way into Laguna/Newport on Tuesday. we’re staying at a Best Western near the Vegas airport = non-smoking, outdoor pool, continental breakfast. if we get an early start, we’ll stop in Kayenta to visit my folks in the afternoon. I’m looking forward to the trip. I love road trips. and the place we’re staying in Newport looks great = 3 pools, close to the ocean, hiking nearby, whale watching, etc.
