This weekend I was supposed to be in northern New Jersey, spending the weekend with a few blogging buddies at the Hamilton Park Wyndham Hotel. But, first I had trouble finding a spot for the dogs, then I had a major car issue…the planets and the moon and the stars just weren’t aligning for us to go away for the weekend so I had to cancel. It was a sponsored trip so my expenses would have been minimal and it would have just been a nice getaway. I was really looking forward to it. But it was just too difficult and once I made the decision and told the organizer, I was a bit at peace with it.
But not today. Now it’s bugging me. Because this is some of what I’m missing out on.
We were going to be staying at the Hamilton Park Wyndham. They have both an indoor and outdoor pool and I was looking forward to just hanging out and relaxing. Looks relaxing, doesn’t it?
And they were going to provide breakfast. I love a good, hot, cooked breakfast. Especially when I’m not the one cooking it.
On either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, my plan was to hop over to the nearby National Park and Historic Sites at Morristown, and get the boys some new stamps in their National Parks’ Passports and more Junior Ranger badges. And see cool, old things like Jockey Hollow.
We were going to be treated to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Yes, the Cheesecake Factory.
And that’s just a handful of the things I’m missing–there were two cocktail events, one on Friday and one on Saturday. We were also possibly thinking of heading over to the Liberty Science Center and Statue of Liberty on Sunday. I was looking forward to checking out all these things and seeing if they are sensory friendly or special needs friendly, and sharing my tips.
I’m sad it didn’t work out, but it has definitely piqued my interest for future weekend getaways!
