The alarm didn't work as I set it but I was up as scheduled by 8:30am and slowly woke up the unmotivated kids. We took advantage of the free buffet in the hotel and got our game faces on for the trip to the stadium. Laneshia agreed to go on the trip but she wasn’t interested in attending the game as football isn’t her thing. Instead she …
I'm testing out this blog site to see if I like it for our trip to Colorado trip.
- Testing this feature out a little more. I wish it was a little more manual.

Hopefully this entry will be long enough to have to pics and vids weaved onto the page. I wonder if I unclick the ...
... a rare diner dish, enchiladas. We connected to I-40 which is old Route 66. Fun!! We cross the Rio Grand outside Albuquerque, NM.
Lightening storms in the distance are nice to watch as long as we can admire from a far! Luckily we have to put on rain gear for just the last 30 minutes of our day. A dip in the hot tub is in order. We gained another hour as we entered a new time zone but we are still tired!

Just four short days ago we were gathered among the daily throngs to watch the Changing of the Guard at the gate and fencing that surrounds Buckingham Palace.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Hotel was aged but nicely refurbished on the interior. All staff were friendly - we made multiple phone calls for service yet staff showed little irritation. Room was clean. During my stay I had problems with the thermostat so we spent the first night freezing as the maintenance staff were not working late. Free hot breakfast is a plus. Slightly noisy at night particularily since our room was on the highway side. My kids loved the sports court but the two basketballs given to us to use were both 1/4 flat.
I used my points so the stay was free. If I had to pay I would have choosen another hotel.
Hotel was conveniently located next to the science museum and a Target. It was only a couple of miles from Texas Tech Univ and South Plains mile.
