Lots to cover today!
Back to the ghost hunt first......
Aunt Donna made us ghost cookies. So cute!
We toured more of the grounds.....headed up to the 4th floor and explored.
Rooftop garden. Herbs are used in the kitchen.
Touring made us hungry, so we walked down the street to Tio's Tacos.
Quirky little place with a ton of "junk art".
Back to the hotel. Caroline talked the concierge into giving us a tour of Anne Rice's room. She wrote the book Angel Time here, set at the Mission Inn hotel. Can't wait to read it!
We started out in the room with the lights off. Kids had flashlights to see around.
And, everyone eventually made themselves at home. I'm sure the concierge thought we were all sorts of kooky.
Next up, the chapel. Gorgeous.
Ordered room service upon getting back.
Sweet Laine tried so hard to stay up for it. Didn't make it.
We let Caroline sleep in the following morning and headed to the hot tub. Great way to start the day.
We also got the parrots up and talking. Lainey was hysterical.
This is Napoleon. Josephine is a bit shy.
A few more stops in the lobby.
Lots of dignitaries have stayed here over the years.
This chair was made for William Taft.....to accommodate his large body.
Jack looks so small!
We finally received a text from Carter begging us to retrieve him from 'Jack and Lainey watch' at the parrot cage. It looked like this.
Love that kid.
Said goodbye to Caroline finally. Such a fun visit. One of our favorites so far!
Saturday night took us to see The Wizard of Oz at my theatre.
All children cast....so fun.
Kids loved it! And, I was super impressed.
Lainey with Glinda, the good witch.
Next up is Little Mermaid. Can't wait!
So......on to Spring Break.
Lots of fun stuff planned:
*Easter bunny visit and lunch at Seaport Village
*golf day with dad
It's going to be a fun week. McNamaras are in town. Lots of visitors on our calendar! Jillian arrives in a few weeks, too.
