We do not celebrate Halloween for many reasons. I’m not going to get into that now. However we aren’t oppose to fun. In fact, fun is something we try to have a lot of in our family. So instead of dressing up and going door to door for candy we do other fun things on this night.
This year we decided to spend the night at John Carver Inn in Plymouth. When we told the kids they were super excited!
Since Halloween night is not a very popular hotel night, especially when it falls on a day in the middle of the week, we were able to check in super early. That gave us a whole day of swimming in the pool. Really, that’s what it is all about for our kids. Not only did we get lots of time to swim but we had the pool to ourselves the whole day with our own personal life guard.
The pool at this hotel is super cool. It has a big, winding slide that is really fast. The kids probably went down it somewhere between 75 to 100 times, easily.
For the first half of the day we were calling it a pirates ship but then it dawned on me. Plymouth. Big rock in the center of the pool. John Carver Inn. Probably not a pirate ship but the Mayflower. Sometimes it takes a little while, but I usually figure these things out eventually. Usually.
After swimming for a while, a long while, we headed back to our room for lunch and a movie…Kung Fu Panda 2. Then it was off to the pool again, this time we were there for close to 3 hours. We had raisin fingers by the time we got out.
Now everyone is exhausted. The kids are sound asleep, snuggled up in their comfy beds, dreaming of room service breakfast.
Today, I once again earned the title of BEST MUM EVER!
