They were tired, grouchy and uncooperative.
Until the music came on.
They started playing music while Elden and I were in the bathroom--pre entree and post salad--and homeboy darted to the dance floor as soon as we came back in.
Our normally shy kid danced for seriously an hour. It was a battle to get him to return to the table to eat. Soon his little sister joined him and also danced like a maniac. We finally called it on their behalf and took them up to the room, but not before Elden and I hit up the photo booth.
We got a king suite so Elden was on a pull out couch in the living area and Edith had her pack n play in our room. We are all sick so it was a rough night if for no other reason than that but it still wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. Elden loved the pool and Edith and I had some serious hotel room cuddles.
