With Wifey away on her school tour, I took 2 weeks off to holiday at home with the kids.
One thing that we did that the kids really enjoyed was staying overnight at a hotel in the city. Hardly any driving, minimal packing, but the kids still got the same excitement of checking in, finding our room and a different environment.
It was great fun! We checked in on a Friday, went downstairs and walked straight out into the city to go late night shopping. Came back, the kids had a bath, we had room service dinner in bed whilst watching TV, then next morning we had buffet breakfast and popped back into the city for more walking around and shopping again!
It made me wonder why we haven’t done this before! Weekend escapes are fun 🙂
