SUN VALLEY

Sun Valley, ID

Over the weekend my husband and I made a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho. We had a hotel voucher for a free night stay through hotels.com with their 'buy 10 nights get 1 free' deal. It expired today, so it was the perfect timing for a fun weekend getaway! We stayed at Clarion Inn in a cozy room with two twin beds, a private patio, tv, and my favorite-- a cast iron tub. They also had outdoor heated pools and a giant hot tub for us to enjoy, and we had it all to ourselves!
 I must say, traveling this time with a baby was a little more difficult than last time. Sleeping with Van in the hotel room was not easy. We set up our GoCrib like usual, but he was too distracted by us in the same room he kept smashing his cute little face against the side of the crib. Needless to say, it was a long night. He managed to finally fall asleep for six hours straight which was good enough for me! 

The challenging part about traveling with Van when he was younger was nursing every two hours. It really slowed things down. Now that he is nine months old, he doesn't have to nurse as often and he eats solid foods which makes it easier to feed him on the go. It is so fun showing him new places and seeing him crawl around and discover his surroundings, but the downside is sleeping away from home because he is more alert and ready to play!
 Saturday we went for a family walk on Lake Creek Trail. It was so beautiful! Is this why they call it Sun Valley? The leaves are starting to turn vibrant fall colors and the whole time I kept wishing I had my mountain bike. Instead we explored the trails as a family and quietly enjoyed the fresh mountain air before we had to return back home.
