Naturally we worried about how the kids would handle their first night with neither parent. We needn’t have — they both did great.
We knew it would be wonderful to spend a completely grown-up night, but it exceeded even our high expectations — as did Laura and her magic touch. (It’s Laura we adore-a. It’s Laura the world needs more o’.) And you can do a lot worse than spend an elegant evening being treated like royalty in the gorgeous Hotel Monaco (another eye-popping Kimpton hotel — we’ve stayed at their Argonaut and their Triton too and have loved them all).
Now the question is: Is this the shape of things to come? Or will last night have to tide us over for a few more years?
