Ninety minutes later we were walking into our two room suite at Embassy Suites. I admit, I'm a hotel snob. But this Embassy Suites left me little, if anything, to complain about. Totally loved it! Well, except for the fact that they use canned diced tomatoes in their omelets instead of freshly diced tomatoes, but that's easily taken care of--just don't order tomatoes on your omelet. One thing that did impress me was the towel animals on the bed. Even the girls room had a small towel swan. And in the bathroom they used a washcloth to make a mini tee shirt out of. So imaginative and a nice touch!
After dinner at Blue Ash Chili and a quick stop at Walmart for sharpies and drawing paper, we went back to the hotel for the rest of the night. There were tons of things to do in the hotel. They had an indoor pool, a game room for the teens and a lounge for the adults. So the hubster and I retreated to the lounge so he could down a few beers and I could have my customary martini (actually two but who was counting). The girls drew in their art pad for a bit, then went to the game room to play video games. Around 11:30 they joined us in the lounge for some late night appetizers. Then we all went to bed and slept like babies.
After a full day at the zoo we drove back to Louisville, all of us exhausted but happy.
