We devoted last week to family adventures - flying into Vegas, driving up through the Sierras into Yosemite, then making the return trip. It was exhausting, but so, so worth it. We love having new experiences as a family of three, and we're eager to inspire in Hugo a curiosity for life and people.
In full transparency, Vegas (or at least the Strip) didn't thrill us. Profiting on human weakness doesn't sit well with me, and this appears to be the name of the game on the Strip. But making it worth the quick stop: flight prices (cheaper than SF), rental car prices (make sure the car and tires are relatively new if you're driving through the desert), some of the hotels (we stayed at the Tropicana at the beginning of the trip and the Westin at the end) and Mon Ami Gabi (right in front of the Bellagio fountains - we ate there twice).
More to come!
