My little fishy
We went out of town last weekend and Preston went swimming for the first time in the hotel pool. He LOVES taking a bath - his feet kick like crazy and his hands slap the water so I was hoping he'd enjoy the pool experience which he did! I bought him a pool floatie, swim diapers (duh!), swim trunks and a sun hat. The pool was indoors, but he needed to look dapper for the ladies :) He wasn't too sure what to do at first but then started kicking and splashing and laughing. He got lots of attention from the hotel guests.
We stayed at a new place this time and were most unimpressed. It's a big name hotel (starts with an 'H'), but we prefer our usual place (Best Western). Our usual place was booked full so we had to find something else that was close to the college campus and the 'H' looked nice online. It did have some good features. We were on the 8th floor (there were 9 total) and had a good view out of our floor to ceiling window. I dread elevators, but I wasn't going to walk up and down 8 flights of stairs multiple times a day carrying a baby and 5 bags. The lobby was gorgeous though - there were white lights in the trees and water fountains all around. The best part was the Starbucks on site - they offered any grande drink for $1.50 with a student ID. We took them up on that offer - yum! We won't be staying there again, but we'll definitely go back for another caffeine fix. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do love froo-froo sugary liquid in a clear cup with a green straw....especially at a killer price! :)
