Went to the beach today. Drove 5 hours yesterday to get here, crashed for the night in a mosquito infested hotel where we killed mosquitos with our electric raquet for 3 hours, then we went to bed.
This morning, it was fun to wake up and see where we were since we got here when it was dark. I walked around and got pictures of all the kids sleeping. Sophi, Natalie, and Lily in a room together, next to Corey's and my room.
Then we woke up the kids, fed them cereal, and packed our stuff. We were still on the hunt for mosquitos and would here a cry from different rooms depending on where people were, crying "Mosquito!" and whoever had the racket had to hurry and kill their current prey or give up on trying to find it and come rescue the said caller. People were yelling "Mosquito" every minute. Last night around 9, after we'd already been hunting and killing for 2 hours, he said "I might understand 1 hour of mosquito killing... but 3?!?"
We woke up to find they had cleaned the pool. Even though it was dark the night before, we could tell there was a nice film of something on there and that it hadn't been stagnant for a while. Corey thinks it had been a nice breeding ground for all our mosquito intruders. It did look better in the morning. But that doesn't mean we're going to stay and swim (I think they cleaned it out just for us). We got a beach across the way that we need to hit!
Below is the nice little alley way which was the hotel parking lot, where our two cars and a motorcycle spent he night
The kids had a great time, I'll post tomorrow with more pictures of the beach.
