Weekly Roundup – Resort Stay, Short Week, and More

Welcome to the roundup for the week of November 21-26. Thanksgiving is fast approaching, but we will cover that in next week’s roundup. This weekend, we took advantage of a gift certificate we had won in a silent auction which entitled us to a night’s stay at the beautiful and luxurious Omni Bedford Springs Resort. We have stayed there several times before and have thoroughly loved it and enjoyed ourselves every time. This weekend was no exception. My parents had come up on Friday and joined us at the Springs.

Our stay began on Saturday morning when we checked into our awesome and spacious room – complete with a balcony with rocking chairs, a refrigerator, an HD TV, and the most comfortable beds and most elegant bathrooms you could ever ever imagine. Then it was off to one of the quick service restaurants for a quick but tasty lunch – quick because by this time, my kids could wait no longer to get into the heated pool – supplied by the allegedly medicinal waters from the fresh springs that run under and near the property. The spa also uses these waters, and their treatments are beyond amazing. The rest of the day continued to see our family enjoying every luxurious indulgence the resort had to offer – from afternoon tea and board games to an experience in fine dining, from movies to our late-night pizza. Yes, my son loves room service, and he’s not the only one. We enjoyed that the next day for breakfast too. We also took one final swim in the pool before leaving the resort for home.

The rest of the weekend was uneventful. This week would go very quickly, as it was a short work and school week. Carson was done with school on Tuesday, and my wife had some training on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday was our first major snowfall of this season – nearly seven inches. We enjoyed playing in the snow and sipping hot chocolate afterwords. We also packed for Harrisburg where we would be spending the next several days celebrating Thanksgiving with my parents, but that’s for next week.
