Sure, we could swim at home. But it just ain't the same.

As I mentioned in my last post, Noah and I crashed for a nice long nap as soon as we got to the La Cantera Westin resort in San Antonio (courtesy of Westin Hotels & Resorts themselves).

When we woke up, I pulled out the suggested itinerary and started reading the options of what we could do together now that we were here. There was all sorts of good stuff. Incredible kid activities. Golfing on one of the nicest courses I’ve seen, etc., etc. But Noah only wanted to do one thing.


So we did.

And then later we swam again.

And later we swam again.

And then later we swam again.

Sure, we could swim at home. But it just isn’t the same as swimming at a place like the Westin. I mean, look at this pool. 

In the end, we both realized just how much we needed to relax, kick back, have yummy food and drinks delivered to our lounge chairs, and then repeat it all over again.

Noah was really good at ordering whatever he wanted. I bet he downed six chocolate milks. When he wasn’t in the water, he was either relaxing with his eyes shut or playing with his iPad. I realized many times on the trip that sometimes kids need to get away from it all, too.

It was some of the best boys time we’ve had together in a long time, and when it was all over, there was no doubt that we’d gotten exactly what we needed.

P.S. Have you ever been spoiled poolside? If you went to the Westin, what would you want to be doing?
