Current mood: blessed
This weekend we went on an adventure. We had a blast. We went up north to NH. We stayed in Gorham at the Royalty Inn. It was the best experince we have ever had with a hotel. Talk about CLEAN!!!!!
The drive up was uneventful. It was gorgous. I so enjoyed just looking around at the lightly snow spotted mountins. We checked in and got everyone changed and ready for dinner. Right on cue Nate started with his fever. Great. Over to Crabby Jacks we went. 100 feet from our room door. Then Paul always thinking looked up walmart on his gps. What luck a mile away was super walmart. WOO HOO. meds for nate and drinks for the room. Didnt know they had mini fridges and microwave.
Get back and tuck everyone in to watch Drake and Josh’s christmas specail. Really cute.
Kids wake at 5 am. Good lord must have been the napping in the car and a good nights sleep. so we put on toon toons and tried to finish sleeping. At 7 we are out the door to Crabby Jacks for breakfast. It is buffet style. Loved it. The food was great. We head back to the room and get showers and kids bundled. Next year ski pants for kids and thermals for the adults. It was cold. We left at 9 to go sight seeing. It was just pretty! I cant even begin to discribe the beauty up there. Still didnt see any moose but maybe next year.
1045 we arrive at santas village and get in the express line as we already have our tickets. We chatted with other families around us. You could just feel the christmas spirit around you. I really needed it that. This year things just didnt have its luster.Now I am in the mood :)We got in the first thing we went on was the carousel that was nothing but santas reindeer. Then over to the elfabet University. Had to get our stuff for the kids to do. We did all the rides we could. We ate at burgermeister for lunch. the food was excellent. We fed the reindeer. they are beautiful creatures. We had so much fun. The last ride of the night was santas monorail how gorgous the place was all lit up.
We were back to the hotel for pizza hut that night. We ordered a side of the mac and cheese pasta amazing you all need to try it. Off to bed. We got up got our breakfast yet again at crabby jacks. Off to the room to pack up. We headed out at 8. We stopped at outlet malls and texas roadhouse for dinner. it snowed most of the drive home but the roads were fine. We had a blast.
I hope next year some you can experince this with us. We are going the first weekend of december again. It is so worth the money spent. hell for 200.00 you get some meals, your passes and the best hotel room ever.
pics to come tonight…have to finish uploading them
