G'ville Day 3 - Fabulous, Fun and almost Free

What a great day!! This morning began with coffee and breakfast poolside - so nice! Then Ethan & Nana did some "exploring" in our hotel - up and down ALL the stairs on both sides and in and out of every door that opened with our key. Then we all went for a nice walk to the McDonald’s on the corner where we each had an ice cream cone. We were a little bummed because the playground was closed but Nana asked around and learned there was a great park down the street. So off we went. And what a FABULOUS park we found. It was huge with lots of running room, two play grounds, a tire swing that Ethan & Madison laughed so hard on I didn't ever want them to get off. There were also the biggest and best climbing trees I have ever seen. It was unbelievable. The kids had a fabulous time. Then it was back to the hotel for a little cool down and dinner at a quaint Japanese Hibachi Grill - for the 2nd time this week. After dinner we took the kids back to the park and they were thrilled!! We stayed for an hour or so before the rain came. Once back at the hotel Ethan wanted to show everyone a "short cut" he found while "exploring" with Nana. Can I just say he is like every man that wants to take a shortcut? Instead of going through the front door of the hotel he insisted we walk around the building to the guest entrance where we had to use our room key to get in. Then he had us walk all the way back to the front of the hotel in order to find the elevator but instead of taking the elevator he suggested we take the stairs because it will be "much faster". When we finally made it back to our room Madison said "Ethan, that was a LONG shortcut!” Boy was she right!

I can hardly believe our time is G'ville is about over. Tomorrow we'll pack up our hotel and spend some time around town before we can pick Sadie up from camp. Oh, how I miss her!
