So we spent the last weekend at the coast, Inn at Otter Crest. We were afraid the weather was going to be just horrible but the place we stayed at was given to us free so we were going to make the best of it. I packed tons of board games and things to do indooors. I rented new movies and brought lots of books for us. I was going to be prepared to be stuck inside all weekend.

The weather ended up being very nice for November. We went to the beach, used the heated outdoor pool, went to the aquarium, went to the beach some more and even saw some otters. (On a side note the kids even saw their first snail on the path to our unit. They liked that.) We did have a flat tire on Saturday! Ben spent quite awhile trying to figure out how to get the tire fixed while I tired to entertain the kids inside our unit.

Overall we had a great weekend away and were very thankful that we were able to stay there for free. We may even get to go back some time later this winter. The owner rents it out but in the winter they have more vacancies. That is what we filled, gladly!

Don't you just love little family weekends away? It's the stuff that our childrens' good early memories will be made of.
