For the thrifty part, we couldn't use our Airmiles for a Best Western, as we didn't have 3 weeks notice. So we sold some things (pies and clothes and books,etc) and made enough money for one night at the Travelodge. We had heard good things about the Motel online from reviews.
We packed some food and headed out Saturday morning.

They just recoated the pavement, so it was very clean and black! This Motel was CLEAN!
|You can dress them up, but you can't take them out!|
|We had top floor, rooms right next to eachother.|
|Mei learned to dive and basically swim at this pool.|
|Goggles work great, they also make us laugh at|
their adorable little fishy faces
|Had to have some junk food from Safeway (very close by) and|
watch some "Mantracker"
|Craving that spicy hot cheese sauce with nachos...I'll post another|
entry about what happened afterwards :)
|Tired little girls ~ they had so much fun at the wedding,|
then the pool, then watching TV ~ yes ~ TV!
|Never fear when Raj is here!|
He brought out more Fruit Loops!
|They gave the girls little smiley tops.|
Seema and Raj were super friendly, not at all creepy friendly, just the sort that made you want to go back again. Mei was singing a little song to herself as we were leaving ... all I heard was something about "UNhappy Mei is leaving the motel..." Later at the park I heard her asking "who wants to go back to the Motel?" I don't know if she remembers ever going to a motel with a pool. We went to one near Barkerville and had mini cereal boxes which she remembered, but there was no pool.
|Happy Mei ~ we hadn't left yet|
|And FRUIT LOOPS!|
|Very suitable shirt|
