Sid and I took turns playing with the water rats and tending to the land-locked little lady. It worked out rather nicely and I think we all had a wonderful time.
After swimming it was time for a movie in bedWe discovered a few tricks that will come in handy on our next adventure. First, the princess canopy. Maaike was able to have a dark corner under the hotel curtains while the rest of us took in a little March Madness.
Second, hotel furniture can be moved. We cleared out a lamp, table, chair, and ottoman to build castle de Maaike in this corner.
And third, never under estimate the power of a changing table. Back in July we put wheels on her changing table so that it could be wheeled throughout the house when she had to be attached 20 hours of the day. Now she is only hooked up when she is sleeping, but the wheels came in handy once again. It was so nice not to worry about disconnecting everything, finding a place for them to sit, and then reconnecting everything. It was a simple unplug, plop it in the back, wheel it into the elevator, and plug it back in. We are hoping to find a smaller cart for our summer trip as the changing table takes up almost the entire back of the van, but lessons learned and mission accomplished.
