After the tour we headed to Bellevue for some retail therapy and the "ho-towel". Part of our group went bowling and to the arcade - but I opted for the shopping ;0)
And of course Caden was SO excited when we told him we were going to the hotel! Tanya and Lily rode with us from the brewery to the hotel. Lily is six, and after 10 minutes of Caden repeating, "ho-towel, ho-towel, ho-towel" Lily chimed in with, "can someone please ask him to stop saying that?!" I love it, the big Sis Caden will never have. Welcome to life with Caden, Lily :0) There was a reason we didn't tell him before we left Wenatchee that we were going to be staying in the hotel.
Upon checking in, Tanya asked if our rooms could be connected. The man checking us in said, "well I will have to upgrade your room for that". Jim asked, "how much will that cost us"? The man replied, "no charge, it will be complimentary"! Score - an upgraded room at the Westin, how much better can it get?
The best part of having Kristian (9 years old) & Lily with us was that we didn't have to keep such a close watch on Caden .... Lily was a good helper at the play area :0)
Caden had fun watching Lily & Kristian in the pool (I didn't think to bring Caden's swim trunks & ear plugs) and Lily & Caden had fun running from room to room. I found a few great sales, so now Caden has new clothes for preschool (like he really needs more clothes - but it was a good excuse!)
It was a fun weekend, living "the life" ... If only we could spend every weekend at the Westin, eating at yummy restaurants, spending time with our friends, shopping like we have tons of money, etc .... instead it's back to reality ... work, bills, and laundry - uck!
Have a Great Week!
