The heat and slime would send us back to the resort to swim, too!

The room location sounds lovely, and I love the pics from the pool! What a great way to cool off and relax a little! Drinks by the pool are always a good thing, too!

Hope everyone lasts for the dinner ADR -- would love to know what you thought of Sanaa!

I, too, am impressed by everything you fit in on this day, and there's still more! You're like little Energizer Bunnies!

I'm interested to see how you like your dinner, I've never been.

It was pretty fun that day, the whole rain/pool vibe. I am really thankful that that first pool rain was lightening free. Had we not been able to use the pool it would have changed the entire rest of the day

I think you are right, question is whether it can go through security or not. Otherwise unless they see you do it, how would they know?

Still, I know myself and I'd be paranoid!

It was a bit amazing at times and much appreciated!

We did keep going but it never felt like we were pushing it or trying to do too much, that was the nice part. I just wasn't sure if that vibe would hold through the evening with what the group wanted to try and do.

That's a good question on the 1 oz bottles. I mean the "rule" is a 3 ounce liquid right, so theoretically....I'd think so.

So funny, I bought one the other day to cook with (apple tart, needed 1T of rum for my glaze) as I just didn't want to buy a full bottle.
just wondering cause when i was at the liquor store talking to the one guy about it he said well here give it a try, and gave me a bunch of free bottles he said to throw it in candis makeup back so it looks like a bunch of mackup things and they wont check.

Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

It's funny that your ta took the up-grade credit for herself...maybe she's expecting a good christmas bonus?

I still can't believe you had enough energy to do so much that day.
I like to fully unpack also otherwise the room ends up a mess by day 2.

WOW! You did an amazing amount that first day. I, too, like to fully unpack. I also don't like my clothes to end up looking super wrinkled, either.

Can't wait to hear about your evening at AK.

Answering the carry-on liquor question... yes, you can. So long as they are in the appropriate baggie and satisfy the requirements of any other liquid you are ok. It is a bit awkward going thru the security line but if given the choice to justify my anti-aging cream vs. tequila, I think I'll pick tequila.

I am really in awe of how much you packed into this day. Hope dinner ends things on a high note!

Boo to your travel agent and the alleged upgrade although glad you ended up loving your location. The view is awesome!!

Seems like a good place to put it anyway, you have to pull out the ziploc and show that stuff, why not mix it in?

Free though? Gotta love IL liquor stores. We are state run here, that would never happen.

Well, maybe she "thought" they did it for her when she called to ask about the rooms being ready early. Who knows.

It makes SUCH a difference, the unpacking. I just feel settled and relaxed and like I am really on vacation once that happens.

Not only that but it's so much easier to find stuff if you are unpacked!

I'm glad you have your priorities straight!

It was a lovely lovely view and it was a really fun, albeit soggy at times, day!

It was a beautiful view. I can't imagine not using the balcony but it was suprising how few people were out every time we were on it. Guess they were just escaping the heat and staying in their rooms, or everyone was at the parks. Just seemed odd that we rarely saw anyone on their balcony and supposedly the hotel was full.

Finally got to read your update!

I have no idea how you guys weren't shot after all you fit in so far. It must of been adrenaline!

Sweet room... too bad you TA took all the credit for it!

Now I'm looking forward to hearing about Sanna.

I honestly think part of it is we did get great sleep the night before so we went into it really well rested.

I'm sure I was a nightmare client so maybe she wanted me to think she was worth it? No idea.

Well, I'm glad your rooms ended up working out so well in the end!! Your view is pretty!!

I'm a full unpacker too! Of course, I also pack the kiddos stuff in labeled ziploc bags! Yes, I'm a tad OCD! I can't stand the idea of living out of a suitcase! It would be way to stressful!

Can't wait to hear how you liked Sanaa! We haven't been there yet but we'll get there at some point!
