the next weekend's competition took us to phoenix.
well, at least for me and the bean. we'd actually hoped that her team would opt out of this one since they'd already earned their paid bid (which was the main reason for attending this competition), but because there were families who'd paid for hotels and plane tickets there was no backing out. the hub stayed behind to represent our family at a memorial service, so it ended up being a mommy-and-me trip.
back to ontario airport, and on another southwest flight.
we were pretty pleased to find that we'd lucked out and were on what seemed like a brand new airplane - it was clean, bright and actually somewhat spacious.
we were at the hyatt this time around, and it was a quick 10-minute uber ride to get there. check-in was easy, and the bean liked the view from the elevator on our way up to our room.
hyatt hotels are generally pretty nice, and this one was no exception.
we even had a nice view.
we didn't even get through half of it, but that's a good thing. we washed out the jar at the sink, wrapped it up in a bag and took it back to the hotel as a souvenir. it was a nice walk back, and then we put on pajamas and settled in for the night.
