So this is really yesterday’s post, but I was laying in bed last night and realized I forgot to post, and just was not going to get out of bed for the sake of blogging. So 2 posts tonight and I say we’re on track. My birthday is tomorrow, and to celebrate my birthday we went on a family trip up to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. I’ve never been there before and I always love spa treatments and excellent food.
We started our visit with brunch at Lautrec. It’s a lovely buffet with all kinds of pastries, fish, pancakes & waffles, desserts and even prime rib. Baby Beez’s behavior has generally been getting better as she has gotten older, but I wanted to make sure she was on her best behavior. To encourage fancy manners, we wore fancy clothes. She loves fancy clothes so this was a thrill in and of itself. She also likes getting to choose her own foods out of a buffet. She was able to show her best manners for the meal and we had a very nice brunch.
Mr. Beez and I went to the spa while Baby Beez spent the day at the Kidz Klub. She was literally the only kid there, but that didn’t bother her any. In typical only child fashion, she made up stories with her imaginary Harry Potter friends, went swimming, watched movies and played with toys. It did not bother her any that there were no other kids there. Although I venture to guess she was a little bit lonely, because by the time we left the resort, she was saying that she missed her friends.
After having an amaaaaazing time at the spa, Mr. Beez and I spent a good part of the afternoon sitting around, drinking wine and reading the whole internet. It’s kind of a silly thing to do, but we don’t get to just sit and relax very often so it was very nice.
We had dinner at Autumn, which included scallops with bacon jam. Yes, Please. The meal was lovely. We do get to go out to eat quite a lot, but it was nice to be able to just wander down and pick up our kid afterward, and then wander back to our room. Because we are total party animals, we were all in bed and asleep by 9:30. But that’s a perfect birthday treat for me. I like sleep.
