Staycation - Day 4

Thursday -

Since he thought we were having too much fun without him, Ben took off Thursday to make it a 4-day weekend.

We were keeping an eye on the weather, hoping to get to the water park. But then, while we were eating lunch at Chick-fil-A, it started to pour. So we headed home to call to check on the situation of the indoor pool at the UAB Campus Rec center. They told us the pool would be camp-free at 12:45, so we headed down.

Besides Ben's having to walk all the way back to the car for his ID, we had a nice time. AJ got to show us some of the strokes she's learning in swim lessons. We played in the whirlpool (vortex) and then rode floats down the "lazy river." Ben and I played pool basketball (U-A-B instead of H-O-R-S-E), which I won. Then we got in the hot tub. This was AJ's favorite part, as she is not allowed to go in the hot tub during camp without a parent to supervise. Ahhhh.

Then, we went to Steel City Pops for our sweet treat of the day. I got chocolate and peanut butter and it was fantastic. AJ got strawberry and Ben got pineapple. Very drippy but very good.

Then, we went to Tuscaloosa and spent the rest of the day trading in the Green Machine for a new 2013 Chevy Volt. It is great, but needed some recalls attended to, so we had to leave it there and drive a loaner back to Birmingham, with a promise that our salesman would meet up with us ASAP to get us our car. We were less than thrilled, but went to Ruby Tuesday to celebrate anyway. AJ was starving and cleaned her plate, so we had a strawberry shortcake sundae to top it off.

More on the car to come at a later time.

Stay tuned for more from Camp Mom!
