One of DP's clients comped us a room at the Rio for the weekend. We had tried to get a babysitter for Friday night and then had planned to bring the kids for swimming, etc. on the second night, but that didn't pan out. And being as we have two sets of grandparents in close proximity who love having Claire sleep over, it's rare to be in that position and so we were kind of panicky until we realized that we could just switch the plan. (Obviously we take our families for granted.) But it worked out and Claire REALLY loves hotels.
When we woke up I went to grab a coffee and wouldn't you know there were no coffee shops aside from the two Starbucks? I guess I could have made coffee in the room or gotten one from the bar, but ugh. So I paid $4 for drip coffee. I drank it sitting on a beach chair with DP while Claire played in the "sand" and I tried not to think of drunk people who were on that same "sand" the night before.
