When we were on our trip, coming home, our flight got cancelled through Pittsburgh and the lady at the airport said she could either get us to Los Angeles or Denver. I had to laugh at her because she said she wasn't familiar with California. We were flying into Sacramento and she asked if LA was close to Sacramento. Sure, like a 6 hour drive. Since my parents live about 40 minutes from Denver and we were going to have to stay somewhere over night, I picked getting to stay with my parents and even picked the later flight home so I could get a couple more hours there. The negative of having to take an extra day off turned into a positive of getting a treat of seeing my parents and sister's family.
