Spiderman Orders Room Service ~ Meal Plan Monday Jan 21

Leave a comment

This past weekend my mother, my sister, her family, the boys and I stayed downtown in ‘the Big City’.

My sister got tickets to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the Children’s Theater.  So they decided to stay downtown using my Mom’s free hotel points.  I kind of work downtown so on Friday my mom and sister brought the kids and my brother-in-law and I joined them after work.

The boys and I only stayed Friday night but everyone else stayed till Sunday.

By the time we all got there on Friday it was after five, but the kids wanted to go swimming right away.

Hotel Swimming

So we put off dinner and headed down to the pool.  I sat on the side with Baby Sid while everyone else swam and hung out in the hot tub.

We then went back to order some room service.  We always allow ourselves one time during a hotel stay to order room service.  The price is high but the convenience is so worth it!  Plus, it makes you feel so fancy 🙂

Hotel Room Service

After getting the kids all clean from the pool it was way too late to try to find a place to feed them.  Baby Sid enjoyed his first hotel stay, taking a quick nap on the hid-a-bed where the kids watched a movie.

We spent Saturday wandering around and of course more swimming.

It was a nice little break from life.

This is my first week back to work ‘full’ time.  This year our budget was cut and I am actually at 80% time, so I work four days a week now.  I have decided to take Wednesdays off, contingent on work load.

Because I am still getting used to work again I am making some pretty easy meals during the week.
