    We loved San Fran. I can strongly recommend Franchino Restaurant in Little Italy (347 Columbus Ave) for the best home-style Italian meals. They're only open for dinner, though.

    Love the next trip is already being planned!

    I have heard great things about Chipotle from a few people now. I know there is one right near our accom in NY so it's on my list. Even the kids meals looked great there!

    We've been to Chipotle twice now, and I'm a fan :laughing: even better DS who is a fussy eater is a fan :thumbsup2 and it is so cheap, wholesome and filling.
    Tonight we're off to The Cheesecake Factory, not so wholesome but very filling ;)

    Oh Becpee, have just caught up on all this! Wow, you have a good case to argue with Delta as that Delta agent on the phone should have cancelled that MCO-LAX flight while you were on the phone with them and should NEVER have told you that no-showing the flight was okay. When res agents are on the phone to pax, they should technically make notes in the booking of everything they discussed with the pax so it would be very interesting to know what booking notes are in that booking of yours and whether Delta will be honest with you if, in fact, the res agent recorded the facts of the conversation correctly.

    On the positive, so glad that you are enjoying Palm Springs. When we lived in L.A. when I was a child, my parents would sometimes take us there for long weekends which we all enjoyed.:thumbsup2

    My girls are not fussy but they are not very adventurous eaters so I'm glad to hear your son liked the food:)

    We're on our way home :(
    Sitting in LAX using the free wifi, just had The Last Supper at IHOP, and all we did was sit there saying " I don't want to go"

    We'll get home and the planning and saving begins again.

    A plan for a 48inch mark on the wall, and when DS reaches it we book another Disney trip :laughing:

    My tip of the day? Do not use hotel phones for long distance calls :headache:
    We both called our workplaces last week, DH was on the phone for 4 minute, me for 10 :confused3
    $100 later and that's after they refunded $47 for calls made that didn't even connect. They refunded those when I asked for itemized calls, that's my only compliant about the hotel though :rolleyes1

    See you on the flip side, with pics :laughing: I'm going back to work on Thursday, that'll be fun...not

    Just heard the funniest thing yet, Delta can't fly to San Diego tonight because their crew timed out, so they're chartering a bus.
    Delta is a circus...

    I think he's about 44-45inches now, so a little bit to go yet.

    Is it sad that I'm sitting in the departure lounge pricing hotels in Palm Springs for next September??
    DH wants to do 10 nights...
    I might try and coincide our trip with my sister so we could take off to Vegas for a few days :p

    Can't even imagine how it would feel to get to an airport expecting to board a plane and being put on a bus! *eek*

    Safe trip home!
