We had arrived at the hotel a few hours before check in and well before Ben meet us with us at the hotel. We spent the time in the hotel lobby...
....I took pictures of the locals....
and we were provided access to the pool while we waited. Gavin and I did some swimming in March....(WOW).
We finally gained access to our rooms, see the towel goose below...and shortly after that Ben arrived!!!!
The boys spent the most of the day in the hotel pool.
Tricia and I meet in college. She was an incredible friend. When my son was born she coordinated a baby sitting schedule while I was in class. She was able to convince several of the girls in the dorm to take turns watching Nick for the hour or so I was in class and switch to meet my class schedule. All but one requested payment. Tricia was in the Childhood Development Program and knew several girls who were eager to take care of a baby. Tricia also lived with me after graduation and was Nicks babysitter while I was working. Our paths continued to cross as I had another child, she had one of her own and our kids grew. She moved to Florida several years ago and I had not seen her since our last visit when Gavin was only about 2 years old.
