Yesterday I was complaining about how my daughter wanted to use her frequent flyer miles to fly to Edmonton. It didn't occur to me at the time, but my daughter has already been to Edmonton. When she was eight months old, we took the kids to the West Edmonton Mall and stayed in a Western themed room at the Fantasyland hotel.
The room was a lot of fun, with a giant stagecoach bed for Mom, Dad, and littlest to share, while we found more suitable sleeping quarters for the other two troublemakers.
I think it might have even been the room that started my girls off on their love of over-sized tubs.
So I guess my daughter's desire to use her miles for a trip to Edmonton is partly my fault. I should have taken her somewhere warm when she was little, but instead we chose a hotel attached to a giant mall and the precedent was set. It was fun getting to stay in the western room though. It was a perfect chance to stay in a room that you'd only book if you had the kids along with you. I mean, everybody knows....
...when you leave the kids at home, you always book the igloo room. That's just common sense.
This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who do crazy things like book the Roman themed room. Why they have their own gladiator costumes I'll never know.
