Our "Stay"cation

Yesterday I surprised the kids by booking a room at the Hampton Inn for the night. I thought it would be fun to hang out, swim, eat junk and watch crappy tv... and just do something a little bit different. It was quite an interesting evening... from misunderstanding the front desk lady explain the pool times -she said the pool was open from 6 to 10pm, and seeing as it was already 3pm, I thought she meant 6PM until 10PM.. so we pushed our dinner back to 4PM (like old people) and went down to the pool at 6. It was crowded. Strange I thought- then I read the sign.. 6am till 10pm... whoops! o-well...

...to the vomiting that the boys partook in- too much candy and soda? Or did they take it to heart when I said we were going to "party like rock stars"?? Because, really, what self-respecting rock star doesn't end his evening with a nice episode of vomiting??
I contemplated going home, but after the incident, both boys seemed fine. I tucked them in with their books and we all hit the hay. After a lovely breakfast (where Ethan, not used to SO. MANY. CHOICES at breakfast had to sample everything- oatmeal, toast, danish, yogurt, apple, OJ and hot chocolate) we went back to the pool, because Hey! did you know it opens at 6am?? Yeah it does! They swam for about 2 hours until their eyes were going to burn out of their heads and then we packed up and came home.
One night was enough.

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the puking! Hopefully it was just too much fun. We did about the same thing this weekend. Our little min-vaca.

Weird (and gross) about the puking -- what the heck was that all about? Sounds like fun! We are doing something similar this weekend -- going to Great Wolf (indoor water park) for one night.
