We finally got to the hotel.
We were all exhausted, but in pretty good moods.
We had picked a hotel with a pool, so that the kids would get a chance to do something after being cooped up in the car all day.
We thought picking a hotel with an indoor pool would be smart, that way in case it was raining, we could still swim.
Well, so did every other human in a 50 mile radius.
I get it, there wasn't a lot going on in the town we stayed in, so most of the people there had the same brilliant idea as us.
Everything in the pool area was wet. Chairs, towels, even the walls, were soaked.
Kids were running around like maniacs, I remained calm, but couldn't help notice that the adult presence seemed a little low for how many kids there were.
Once we found a partially dry corner, we all went in the pool. It was then I was able to see that there was a large group of kids there with one woman as their adult supervision. Okay, that's fine. Except, she couldn't have paid less attention to any of them.
I am all for kids letting off steam, I know that in a pool full of kids, you're going to get splashed and bumped into, but these kids were out of control.
They ran from the hot tub to the pool and back..jumping in each place without paying any attention to who they were jumping on, and just at the moment when I thought,"Okay, my nerves are shot, just calm down" , my husband looked at me and said, "Someone is going to get killed, who is watching them?"
Once my kids had had enough (we felt awful, they basically stayed in a shallow corner to avoid the madness) we attempted to dry off and head out for some dinner.
As we were leaving the pool area, all the other adults who belonged to the pack of wild ones, were coming into the pool area, with tons of alcohol. Awesome, things would clearly get better.
Once back on our room we all decided we were much too tired to go and sit at a restaurant, so we ordered some take out , ate it in the room and soon after , went to bed.
Tomorrow we would head to our destination!
