Dealia was able to come with me on a business trip to Miami. While I worked she explored the beach and the surrounding area. Nice 70 degree weather, beautiful scenery. On our last day there I finished a bit early and we were able to go parasailing together, and we saw a sea turtle. Really a wonderful trip!
Day one of our Eclipse trip – we drove through Ohio, had dinner at a Culver’s near Cincinnati, and ended the day in an awesome pirate ship themed hotel room at Wildwood Inn in Kentucky. The hotel room has a loft with a bed and sitting area upstairs, bunkbeds under the stairs, more beds downstairs, and is painted and decorated like a pirate ship throughout, complete with rigging and sails and lamps that look like oil lamps. It’s very awesome. Plus, there’s a pool and a hot tub and air hockey. And good free wifi. Too bad we are only here for one night!
Ana competed at non-qualifying regionals in Alpharetta, GA, very close to where we used to live. She had very good skates, all her jumps were clean and she looked very good. She got 2nd in her preliminary compulsory (out of 9), and 11th in her free skate.
We also spent some time visiting some of our old Atlanta haunts, including the house where we used to live:
And the playground near our old house – we were last there when Jenya was 3 and the twins were one.
