After realizing I booked the wrong hotel, 45 minutes from anything, we loaded the kids and crap up and relocated. Strike one.
By the time we got settled into the second hotel and got the kids to the pool we had been promising for four LONG hours, they were only able to swim for about 15 minutes before we had to get ready for the rehearsal dinner. Have you ever had to pull a kid out of the pool after only 15 minutes? They were NOT happy campers. Strike two.
|Swans! In the lobby! Now, where's the pool?|
However, I did not miss the rounds and rounds of yummy BBQ, sides, and dessert. Neither did Haley, who ended up eating just a little too much on her already-wound up tummy. I should have seen it coming, but before I knew it, she was barfing up her entire day's worth of food. Strike three. We were OUT!
Luckily, day two turned out SO much nicer. The girls got to swim to their heart's content. I got to go shopping (DSW) and hang out with the adult gals for a few facials (Rodan and Fields). Then, the fun really started after we dropped the kids off at my dad's house.
|So in love!|
|Could they be any cuter?|
And more highlights:

|Mom and Jeff, looking lovely too!|
After picking up the kids from my dad and Christy, we headed back home to reality. We decided to make it a true vacation, stopping to play tourist at the Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown. It turned out to be this amazing one hour tour of a huge cave.
Unfortunately for Haley and me, the guide said we might see bats. Haley got freaked out and started losing it about 15 minutes into the tour. She and I ended up escaping the
tomb cave and hanging out in the gift shop. I can only take Bryon and Shelby's word that the rest of the tour was worth stopping for...
|Headed into Inner Space|
|Haley is already thinking about giant bats coming to get her|
