Way back in January, when we went to Warner Robins AFB with the Cub Scouts, B10 saw a flyer for an event called "Young Astronauts' Day". He really wanted to go, so I signed him and one of his friends up. They get to meet a real astronaut and rotate through 4 different classes.
Today was the big day - I picked up J from school (quite an experience for B10) and we headed down south. (Of course, GO was with us!) My goal was to spend the night in a hotel with an indoor pool, so it would be a big treat for both boys.
We drove a little over two hours before stopping for dinner. It was J's first time at a Cracker Barrel - **gasp** - both enjoyed cheeseburgers and playing checkers next to the fireplace.
From there, we were only about 20-30 minutes away from our hotel. We quickly changed into our swimsuits and headed to the pool.
Even GO had a little swimsuit! It was pretty busy, with two large families there, so she never got in the water, but she was dressed to impress!
I told the boys we could only stay until she began to get fussy, which was almost two hours!
We met a little girl at the pool, she was fascinated by GO. She would swim for a few minutes, then come and want to touch GO's toes and tell me how tiny they were. She was quite adorable.
GO ended up falling asleep for almost 45 minutes - she actually found her thumb all by herself and put herself to sleep. :D
By the time we got back to the room, everyone was getting tired. The boys took baths and while I was bathing GO, they watched Ben10 (one of the two cartoons I actually let my Caterpillars watch, mainly because B10 gets a kick out of almost sharing a name with the character).
Everyone is snuggled in their beds now. It's my hope that GO will continue to sleep here (where she is right now - the black "box" is her Eddie Bauer travel bed, very handy!):
But I'm prepared to move here if necessary:
I'm off to bed, 6:30 am is going to come very early...and who knows how GO will sleep tonight!
