We didn't take a vacation, per say, this year. We did spend one *expensive* night downtown in July! The girls are always wanting to go to the city. The other thing they always want to do is swim. Win-win! We got a room at the Embassy Suites in the city for a night. The hotel room was great, good price, pool (small, but a pool is a pool!) and breakfast included. The expensive part was the reason for the trip down there....Blue Man Group tickets! Well, the tickets AND parking. Ugh. We have been wanting to take the girls, knowing they would enjoy it. We were right! We ate lots, swam lots, and packed a lot of fun times into an overnight trip. By the next afternoon all four of us couldn't wait to get home to Libby. She is loved. =^.^= Check out the cool place Daddy found for us to go...
