we had gone down to Florida for a family reunion (dale's side). and it was a pleasant time. the pillows at the Hilton were so bad i had to buy some of my own. the bed wasn't great either. it had a little knob on each side where you could adjust the firmness. right.
we got room service our first night, after the ten hour drive (bad traffic). and we had free breakfast every morning at the hotel, which was very good. and now i know that whenever you book a room at the Hilton (probably anywhere), you must request a free breakfast and you will get it.
there was a family dinner and then an auction and that was fun. we bought all sorts of silly stuff. we took dale's dad and his brother to lunch, seaside. and we bought gifts in little seaside shop.
and the beach was very cool, old-fashioned, like something from an old movie. i just wish i'd enjoyed the water more.
but it was good to get out of town, just me and dale. we don't do this often enough and we are going to be doing it MORE often, i swear. there are some things i can make happen.
