The winner: Greyhound bus!
Oh! But, the good times didn't stop there! When we landed in Denver, I tried to book an Uber or Lyft to get us to the hotel for the night... It said for me to wait 45 minutes...no driver ever accepted my request or showed up... It could be user error though since I am not entirely sure how it works. So, we ended up having to get a taxi and pay more than double the price of the Lyft.
Still not the best part... it is now 11:00 pm or so...and we get to the hotel, unload the luggage and car seats, wag two crying babies into the lobby...and our hotel reservation was cancelled. Who knows why? The only thing I can figure is when they were trying to get the car rental thing corrected that they also canceled our hotel along with the car reservation.
Now it is late at night...none of us have had any dinner...I have not bought any milk for Hawkins. We had the sweetest little taxi cab driver and he loaded us all back up and drove us to another hotel that we booked as we were driving down the road. He didn't charge us a dime! When we reached the Comfort Suites, the people were so good to us. They helped with the babies and got us some milk from the continental breakfast!
We got up super early the next morning to get a taxi to the bus station. Y'all! When we were in the station, I am pretty sure that we were in the bowels of Denver. It was absolutely disgusting. And, guess where my children kept trying to play?! In the FLOOR!!! I was so dreading what the bus was going to look like and the people that were going to be on it. Lo and behold! It was actually very clean and the people on the bus were not near as sketch as the people in the station.
We had a wonderful trip after that though...mostly!
We made it to Tadd and Mekenzie's and we had a great time visiting.
