I keep having longer and longer breaks between posts. This time I was actually doing something. After my parents left I went to yoga classes everyday and got everything ready to make a trip to Richmond VA. We go to a music fest there every year (well we did skip last year). The last 2 years, Elinor has done great at shows/fests. She always surprises me with how easy going she acts when we aren't home.
The Omni. Wow this hotel is awesome and so kid friendly. As soon as we checked in they handed Elinor a backpack with little things like a ball, magnify glass, crayons and more. There was also a frisbee that we ended up using as a plate the whole weekend. I wish I asked them more about what they offer for kids. On the last night I read you can borrow a backpack full of coloring books and games. I will have to remember that for next year. The hotel was walking distance to the venue which made it so easy to walk back and forth when Elinor needed a break. We ended up getting to swim a ton. The best part of the pool was not only it was indoor but it was heated. Not just a little warm but almost like bath water. I don't like swimming too much but that made it easy to bring Elinor.
If you have time, please help us win a trip to Disney and click VOTE on this picture of Einor!
