Part of Lou's new territory (with his new job) is Puerto Rico. After getting home from work late on Tuesday night he searched the internet and then around 11:30 PM said "Hey, looks like this weekend would be a good weekend to go over to PR. Wanna go?" So we decided to do it and since it was late at night we decided we would take K with us. By 1:30 AM we had booked tickets and booked a hotel as well. We were leaving late Thursday night. We decided to take the 11:45 PM flight figuring K would sleep...NEVER AGAIN!! We borrowed a travel carseat from a friend, which was very helpful. Normally she goes to bed at 8, but didn't even close her eyes until 12:15. She slept for most of the flight but her ears popped when we were descending and she woke up..and stayed awake through the long wait to get the rental car and until we were in bed at the hotel (around 6 AM their time..they are 1 hour ahead) Needless to say we missed out on the complimentary breakfast that morning as we slept in till 11.
The weekend was filled with many firsts for Kelsey... first time she slept on a big girl mattress (the porta crib they had their was all metal and she was too big for it. Luckily another friend had let me borrow this toddler air mattress and I packed it just in case.) I was worried she wouldn't nap and sleep on it, but she did great. Putting it between the bed and the wall I think it was more confining and more like her crib.
Each night from 4:30-7 they had the manager's reception, which was complimentary snacks (popcorn and chips/ salsa) & drinks. So K got to try popcorn and would ask for it all day the following day until the reception again.
Here she is trying a french fry..needless to say she liked it. It will definitely not be a staple in her diet, but something I will allow from time to time.
