Last Friday we got back from the fly / drive in America: 3 days in Vegas, 2 days in Palm Springs, followed by 1 week in Laguna Beach in the OC, California.
It was lovely, but Vegas and Palm Springs were much too much too hot for me and kids (40 degrees C or 108 degrees Fahrenheit in Palm Springs!!!) It was much cooler by the beach in Laguna though. The kids have been jet lagged for the last 3 days since they got back though, which has made the nighttime "interesting" ;-)
I'm in a hurry, I'll update later...(you lucky people ;-))
