USA Roadtrip – The Full Story

In March and April we spent 3 weeks in the USA. Starting in Los Angeles we travelled to Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and many other places along the way. We knew that being on the road for 21 days with 5 kids would be hard, but we still managed to have a fantastic time. If you have been following the story and thought that everything went perfectly, it didn’t. We had to make many changes to the original plan.

Buddy V’s at the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada

Almost a year ago (when Samuel was a newborn baby) the kids and I started watching The Cake Boss. I would sit and feed Samuel and we would watch the show – episode after episode, and we would look forward to the next feed time and the next episode. The kids would say they wanted to go to Carlos’ Bakery in New Jersey and buy a cannoli. So when we found out that Buddy Valastro had opened his own restaurant ‘Buddy V’s’ in Las Vegas we booked a table (months in advance might I add!). We were very excited.

Hoover Dam, Nevada

We have arrived in Nevada! Last week our friends drove the same route as us, Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, and we have been following their pictures on Instagram. They stayed in Las Vegas longer than our one night (where we are trying to cram in as much as possible) and they went to the Hoover Dam – which is an hour drive from the Las Vegas strip. When Ben saw that is was close enough to get to, we changed our plans and made it our first destination in Nevada.
