We all enjoyed our mini staycation and wish we could pull off another mini trip before heading north. Way north. Maybe just staying in a hotel while we move out and host an engagement BBQ will work for the kids. :) The Gaylord has added a nice, big outside pool with lots of things to do. From the lazy river to the zip line and water slide, there was plenty to do. The pools were uncrowded and kids well behaved. I could not imagine this place busy. Chairs were everywhere but the husband and I could not figure out where everyone would go if it were full. The lazy river isn't that big. The pool isn't that big. I guess that isn't for us to worry about since it will be highly unlikely we will be staying there again this summer. Back at the hotel side, many conventions were going on but the place did not feel crowded. We walked right into the Riverwalk Cantina, snapped tons of pictures without fighting for room and the pool at the hotel was vacant. This was close to perfect for us. The Gaylord tends to get overcrowded during certain times of the year and those always seem to be there times we head out there.
All three kids were up way past their bedtime and nicely slept until 10 the morning at the Gaylord. Don't get too giddy, Hailey Grace and the husband are the only ones who probably slept close to all night. From Harper waking to Hudson peeing out his nighttime diaper and a snoring husband, sleep didn't exactly happy for this gal. I will admit to shedding tears around 3 this morning. Everyone has nice, comfy beds and I had hopes for 5-6 hours of sleep. One day. One day. Happy to report that both girls slept until nearly 9:30 this morning resting up back at home.
The Texas heat wasn't really heat until we were getting ready to head home on Wednesday. Once it began to get hot, it was pretty warm.
