So - we headed off to a OKC...deciding to stay in a nice hotel with a nice pool. So it wasn't fancy...or really interesting to anyone by myself (and William haha). But I thought I'd throw it up here...because this is about all the vacation I'm going to get for the next 1-2 years. :-)
First this we did when we got into town was eat. Rebekah insisted she wanted Arby's. What? ARBY'S??? Really? No. We chose a local BBQ joint that was supposed to be famous in this city.
We treated the kids to a beer...ok. ROOT beer. But Rebekah LOVED the fact it was in a bottle. And a brown one at that.
About to go swimming...
So, at first Peter didn't want to get into the pool. Then he got in, but clung to William. By the end of the trip, he was toodling around the pool by himself (with his life jacket on of course!).
One time Rebekah asked if I was going to swim. I told her I was going to sit by the pool and pretend I was at the beach. She says "Oh I LOVE the beach! I'm going to pretend too!" LMHO! She's never been to a real beach by the way...
We ate dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. The kids were kinda whinny...which had everything to do with the fact they were so tired. Little nap, big pool fun results in cranky over-tired children. Despite that, they weren't too tired to go swimming after dinner or wake up at 6:30 AM and ask to go swimming again. We did eat breakfast, swim some more then checked out.
Our original thought was maybe hitting a museum before heading home, but it became very clear that the kids were going to conk out (they almost didn't make it the 2 min to Arby's to get a bite to eat!).
It was a very simple vacation. Although short, it certainly was better than no vacation at all!
