Weekend RePlay

If you aren't aware we have spent the last week in Jersey.  The hotel we are staying at is pretty awesome.  {aloft.}  The kids are loving the pool.  The dog is loving the spacious grassy area. {Hard to find grass at a hotel!}  So we started the weekend off by getting the kids out of the hotel room for a playtime at the park Mr. L found on the way to work.  The kids were overjoyed to be out and able to run & play. 

 Saturday we hit the road and traveled down to Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell & Franklin Park.  For Miss Emma the Liberty Bell was a big let down.  The whole time she was waiting to see the "Liberty BELT" and when she found out there was no belt involved... well what a bummer. 
Franklin Park was really cute.  Not only being historical... but FUN!  And fun is just what you need for 3 kiddies.  They have mini-golf, a carousel, a fountain, playground & a hamburger shack.  We took advantage of all but the playground & everyone had LOTS of fun.  
The mini-golf was rather neat being that it was themed around the Philly interests.

 It was a good Saturday.  Mr. L went out to watch the UFC fights later at night.  Caught up with an old Military friend that was in the area - Andy & had a good time by the looks of the receipt.  
Gotta love the price of beer at a bar. Oye.  
Sunday we wasted our morning waiting on the housekeeping that never came.  Until I made a phone call.  I don't understand how all of these gals can be deathly afraid of a Pug.  Seriously.  I either have him in his house or on the leash about to remove him from the room when they come in.  Its not like he has ever gotten close to them.  I just don't get it.  But.  Because of this they refused to even knock on the door.  And we were out of toilet paper.  After a phone call to the front desk & a 15 minute promise we got service.  
ONE HOUR LATER.  Once the room was done & it was safe to return the Pug to the room we went over to the mall to get Cody a haircut.  He was in dire need.  He looks like a new man & is light as a feather.  Then we grabbed dinner at UNO Pizzeria.  Yumm.  Took the kids for an after dinner swim & let them watch a movie before bed.  I think the late night swim tired them out.  They slept till close to 8 am.  Yah! For me!

Just four more days in Jersey.  The kids can't seem to decide if they are ready to go or wish they could stay.  But in the end Emma misses "Little Lamb" her stuffed hot pink lamb & Cody and Jack can't wait to sleep in there own beds.  While I cannot wait to be back into routine.  Hard to stick to my 7pm bedtime while sharing a hotel room. Ugh.   Hopefully we enjoy our last few days.

Oh.  And lets not forget.  I miss my sewing machine.
