Weekend Getaway

The fish that the kids liked to go and watch. My son in the pool.

My daughter (in pink) in the pool with some random folks in the background.

My husband and son conked out.
Saturday morning I had spent ten minutes outside doing some light gardening and when I came back inside I was just dripping wet. I wanted nothing more than to just jump in a pool. So, spur of the moment I tried to Priceline a room at one of the handful of resorts here in town. No surprise that our low price was accepted....Tucson isn't really a desirable place to be during the summer we quickly packed our swimsuits, sunscreen, hats, and some clothes and headed to the Hilton.

We spent the next 24 hours either in the pool or sleeping. It was wonderful. The kids had a great time and there was just enough breeze that at times we were even chilly in the pool. My daughter would seriously live in a hotel if we could afford it. She loves everything about "hotel life": room service, comfy beds, constant swimming, water slides, and just exploring outside. My son, while he loved the swimming, asked constantly to go home. He even woke up most of the night crying because he wanted to go home. If I could have slept with him in the pool all would have been okay, but he is definitely a home body.

Anyway, we are back home. Back to reality and sweating again. What was your weekend like? Did you do anything fun or exciting?

What a great idea!
You all must have had alot of fun.
Cody had his hand surgery Friday evening and we didn't get home until 10:30!
I made sure he was feeling well, got his Rx filled and then I went up to the lake until mid-day today.

The lake sure sounds nice. Glad to hear Cody's surgery went well!
