We are Home!

We are home!

Our Seattle trip to celebrate THE HUSBAND’s grandfather’s 80th birthday was a fantastic. It gave us a chance to visit (and for me to meet) family and to relax. There was also a little time to fit in fun “touristy” things. We visited Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, The Pacific Science Center and Friday Harbor.

Thanks to everyone for your flying with small kids suggestions, much to the relief of the entire plane the 5 1/2 hour flight went well!

I did realize a few things-

  • A break from blogging/work is good every once in a while. I miss blogging and all my readers when I am gone for awhile.
  • After living in a hotel for a week I miss my own bed and am ready to be home. When I am not living in a hotel I miss having a maid.  :0)
  • Family is a gift. The memories we made with our own small family and the time we spent celebrating our large extended family is priceless.


Saving on Our Big Family Trip to the West Coast

THE HUSBAND and I are getting ready to take three small children on a 6 hour plane ride to Seattle, Washington.  Yep, a 6 hour flight. i am so excited- we are going to visit family we rarely get to see.

This picture is THE HUSBAND and I the last time we visited five years ago at the top of the Space Needle. We had one six month old at the time. My how things change in just five years! Now we will be that family that everyone watches board the plane and prays is not sitting anywhere close to them. :0)

I have spent a lot of time the last few weeks planning, making reservations,  and trying to get use ready for our early morning flight.

I thought that I would share a few of the ways we have tried to save money on our trip.

Flights- I used a to find the best deal.  I compared flights from Knoxville and Nashville (often flying from a larger city is cheaper) It turned out this time we could fly from Knoxville for the same price.

Baggage– Can not believe you have to pay $25 each way to check a bag! What happened to the good ole days?  We are attempting to pack in one large duffel bag. (I know, I know. Notice I said attempting. I will let you know how it tuns out) We will be able to do laundry anytime we need to so I tried to plan outfits for the boys that would mix and match. Their jackets are in the bottom of their backpacks.

Hotel- THE HUSBAND has a credit card he uses for his business. (I know Dave Ramsey would not approve but…) He had enough points saved that we are able to stay in a Embassy Suites Hotel  for the week for free.   A made to order breakfast is included in our stay so this will also help with food costs!

Car Rental-I was shocked at how much more expensive a mini van or large SUV was over a car, but I just didn’t think we could get a car seat and two booster seats in anything less. I started with deal sites but in the end found the best deal at They had a “pay for it now” price that was much less than I could find anywhere else.  We did not rent any car seats- they wanted $63 each for the week!  We decided to take one with us and borrow two from family friends once we arrive.

House Sitting– College Kids. We are letting some college students we trust stay for the week. They get free laundry and more space and we get someone to watch the house, gather the mail etc.

In Flight Entertainment-this has been a major area of concern for me. Each of the older two have backpacks to carry on. I have kept my eye out for clearance deals over the last few months for  coloring books, bendaroos, sticker books etc. I decided on Color Wonder books so the plane would not be covered in marker when we left. My plan is to let them pull out one new surprise every hour.

I’ll update to let you all know how it goes! If anyone has travel tips or saving tips feel free to share. I would love to hear your ideas.
