Yesterday we arrived at the Rosedale on Robson (they helped me choose it...it had to have a pool and breakfast!) It was the afternoon, and we quickly changed into our swimming things to enjoy the pool! The pool was actually not that deep and once Greta saw older kids in the water she wanted these water wings off...but they came in really handy for Therese! Once she realized what it felt like to float weightlessly she was really into it!
When dinner was over we walked to the grocery store and loaded up on bulk candy! Here they are back in our room (on the amazing hide-a-bed...something they'd never seen before!) with all their candy watching the TV (something else they're not used to...we just have netflix...Therese kept saying she wasn't done watching because the shows weren't over!! i told her "It's TV, it's never over!") She ended up staying up till 10 into some cartoons! I'm pretty strict about shows and candy and all that at home really so it was quite a treat for her :-)
After the swim I let them watch more cartoons while we all got ready to go. It was a short stay, but it was so much fun! We'll have to do it again! What a great way to have an inexpensive and EASY getaway!! I'm sold.
Here they are outside the building.
Anyway, I'm really enjoying the time off. It's super rainy right now, but maybe we can hit the ice skating rink in the neighbourhood one more time--we did that on Monday--or maybe the library will have a lego party, or maybe the weather will improve and we'll get to spend a lot of time with friends at the park! Who knows! But it's great. It's so relaxing. The time at the hotel was really special and I hope we do it again soon.
