Our Hotel in Maryland

Our hotel in the BWI area of Maryland was one of those popular chains that have plenty of good amenities, including a pool, a tennis court, breakfast and happy hour treats.

When the weather was sunny enough we took advantage of the pool though we have no photos since our camera is not waterproof. Granny and Grandpa were well supplied with balls of various sizes which saw plenty of use in the tennis court.

Two-on-one tennis without rackets (and with Grandpa's coffee handicap)

L uses the Force to control the ball.

J throws high!

The television wasn't good enough so J and L performed some theater for us with puppets courtesy Granny and Grandpa. J has an excellent memory for Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The Three Little Pigs was another classic presented to us

The other popular treat was at breakfast, namely the waffle maker. Such machines seem standard nowadays at upscale hotels with breakfast bars. I'm just glad we don't have one at home because it has a lot of supporting infrastructure--whipped cream, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, blueberries, strawberries, caramel, etc. The kids wanted powdered sugar like we had in Belgium, but L quickly branched out to other sweets, especially the chocolate.

A happy breakfast

The hotel was fun to stay at and served as a good base to visit friends and have other American adventures.
