For years now, early dismissal has filled me with dread. So many children at home! So much unstructured time! So little chance I will get my afternoon nap!
And to make matters worse, Ben usually works on Fridays, so early dismissal is me. All me. And, you know, all those kids.
So yesterday, we decided to conquer early dismissal by checking into a Hampton Inn down the road that has a great kid pool for a little Friday afternoon/evening swimming and pizza. And this hotel has a breakfast buffet, so we came back for more swimming this morning! We got our $113 out of that room, that's for sure.
It's going to be an early dismissal tradition-- there's a Holiday Inn in town with a WATER PARK, so we might try that next time. Although maybe not-- we had a poolside room, and we were always the only people in the water, from 3-8 yesterday and from 8-11 this morning. HEAVEN.
I took pictures, OF COURSE, but there was other stuff on my camera, so let's talk about a some random stuff, huh?
Before the got THE PLAGUE, we visited baby Henry in the hospital (YOU ARE SO WELCOME, HENRY'S PARENTS)
Look at her bounce!
Okay seriously, how cool is this hotel pool?
