This past week my kids had Fall Break. Since Tim had a few big things going on at work, he couldn't take any time off. So I decided we'd go on a "staycation." I turned our house into Hotel De Morelos. For FHE last week, we got in the car to go on a fun trip, when we got to our destination it looked an awful lot like our house! But little did our boys know, we had just arrived at the most exclusive, luxurious and all-inclusive hotel ever. We offered room service (they chose their breakfast, lunches, snacks, and desserts), mints on freshly made beds, a chauffeur service, a spa, among many other things. I made room keys for the boys and a "lock" for their door. They loved it. I made a spot in the main living area of the hotel for the itinerary, room keys (in the turquoise card), and messages.
On the itinerary we had library, park, learning to ride bikes, zoo, culinary lessons, ghost town, movie night, games and so much more!
Here it the hotel's very own game room. We used it almost every day.
Delicious picnic of lunchables goodness.
Culinary lessons. We made sugar cookies. The boys loved helping.
Matthew said, "Hey, Mom, I'll add the love." Oh, Spongebob.
Jacob did his part by reorganizing the cupboards.
Goldfield Ghost Town. Super fun!
Our new friend. Isn't he cute?
Afterwards we each got an ice cream cone. Mine had a dead worm in it. Super yum!
Jacob loved the carousel. It was his first time on one. I'm sure it was not his last.
Ted's Hot Dogs. Such a good place. I love the corn dogs and cheese fries.
What a fun staycation! Can't wait to do it again.
