What do you get when you combine a hotel room, with 3 kids, a 2 year old who wakes up at 1:00am (who doesn't go back to sleep until 4:30am and will only sleep on the floor with you laying right next to her), a train track that is a block away and trains that pass by every half hour of the night blowing their loud whistle? A VERY BAD night of no sleep!

This was our 1st night of spring break vacation visiting family. Not so fun. The next night I noticed a large floor fan in the hall of the hotel by our room. I suggested to Brent that we borrow it and see if the noise from the fan helps us sleep and drowns out the noise of the train. (our kids all have fans in their bedrooms for some white noise) So we did....and we did sleep better. It was a nice enough hotel but we will NEVER stay there again!

It was great seeing family and I wish I got more picture but you know how it is sometimes.....You have all kids lined up posing for a fun cousin picture you go to take the picture and it says "change the batteries" !!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned for more spring break updates....Kansas City here we come!
