This little goat(above) seemed to really like Julia. He kept wanting her to pet him. I wish I could have recorded all her oohs and ahhs. It was really cute.
We went on the hay ride and saw berries growing. We both wished that we could pick some to eat.
(Look at the boy behind us doesn't he looked thrilled!)
And of course we got Julia some ice cream! Yummy!
While on the hay ride I told Julia that I had another surprise for her. She wanted some hints so I told her "PINK". She had no idea what I was talking about. I figured she wouldn't. Anyway, on the ride over, to our next surprise, I struggled to come up with the perfect way to share the secret and came up with a plan. Here's what I did.....
I pulled into the inn parking lot and stopped. Julia asked me if this was a place to sleep. I answered with a simple yes and said quickly that there was a lot more to do too. She was content with that answer, still unaware. I went to the back of the car and asked her to come help me with something. I was pulling out our suitcase and planned on asking her to help me carry it to our room. She came around the car more confused than before and smiled. I asked her if she knew what the suitcase was for and she said, "yes but I'm not going to tell you". This is Julia's way of expressing that she really doesn't know for sure. I asked her if she would like to stay here for the night and she said yes, she screamed with excitement, jumped up and down and screamed again. Oh the look on her face!!!
I bet you would like to know where we stayed huh?
(The sign makes this place look cheese balls but trust me it's not)If you have never seen or heard of this place you have to check out their website HERE. We stayed in room 173, Floral Fantasy. Check the room out HERE .
Julia loved the room! We spent time at their amazing pool and jacuzzi (Julia's favorite part). Ate at there pink steak house ( which is like eating inside pink frosting, check it out HERE), we looked at their shops and Julia rode her bike on their trail.
Julia and I both fell in love with their cool chairs. The colors are so fun.
We played Chutes and Ladders and Connect Four (seven times each game because Julia is
turning 7-Julia's idea!). Julia wore the rob from the room and owned it. She had so much fun.
Julia was really cute. She wanted to keep all the doors in the room closed because "then there is more pink". I love how she pays attention to detail.
And look at this...
a pink bike rack! It doesn't get better than that.
Julia and I had some really special moments. I wish I had time to write about them all. I am happy to know that she felt loved and very special! Every moms wish.
PS I decided that I can't leave this one precious moment out of our story. Shorty upon entering the room Julia noticed a picture on the wall with a mother and daughter sitting in a garden. She instantly told me, " Look at this picture, it's perfect for us because it's like you and me". If that doesn't melt a mamma's heart I don't know what will.
