The Marshs Marvellous Mousecation- Day 7 - Saturday 13th April


I can't believe we're half way through our trip already (although trying to look on the bright side - a week of fun still to go!).
We were going to do Volcano Bay, but a) we need a proper rest day & b) the temperature is 31 & kids are finding it hard going.
So we told them we'd have a pool day here, with a trip out for a bit of food shopping (yes, the other stuff has largely gone!).
With no alarms set (bliss), I woke at 9.10am (everyone else was already up!).
We had breakfast in the villa, then I unpacked from RPR yesterday and put some more washing on.
DH surprised me with a little gift as i was unpacking- namely the free toiletries from his room at RPR. (Being 6 of us, we always end up with 2 rooms in hotels - 1 adult & 2 children per room - if anyone knows a cheaper way around this for the future, please tell!). I couldve kicked myself as completely forgot these from my room! DH is obviously more on the ball than Im giving him credit for!
Here they are:

After which, I joined everyone else in the pool! Not much chance of relaxing on a pool noodle with my lot splashing around though!
Around midday, as we were concerned about kids in pool at hottest part of the day, so we got changed & drove to Publix.
The last two days have been our hottest so far, and despite regular applications of sun cream, we're still a little burnt.
Got to Publix & discovered I'd left my list behind 🙄, but luckily I think we remembered everything we needed.
In addition to milk, bread, more water, soda & meals for our eat in days, I also bought myself a new lunch bag for work ($7.99 + tax). Not that interesting I know, but something which will remind me of Florida when Im back at work! And here it is:

After we'd finished & got home, it was 1.30, so we had lunch in the villa.
The kids were getting a bit restless & we decided to head out to the Coldstone Creamery! 😋 😋
Omg, they are absolutely divine. We all seemed to opt for different toppings:
Choc mint chip, peanut butter, cookie dough, coffee, chocolate & strawberry. We all have eyes bigger than our bellies as none of us could finish them. Total cost was just shy of $40, just a lovely experience watching the servers mix the toppings on the cold slab, and another tick off the list of things I wanted to try! 😀 🍦 😋
On the drive back, DS spotted a Nike outlet, and youngest a gift shop, so we parked up & had a look around. Nothing purchased in Nike, but pool noodles, magnets & snorkelling masks purchased in gift shop.
Then it was back to the villa for more pool time (where we discovered the pool noodle sinks when you lean on it! 🤔, that's why it was so cheap!).
Finally, got dinner started at 7.30 (we were all full from ice cream before), and ate at 8.10pm (chicken Kiev, garlic bread, nuggets, chips, mozzarella sticks). Not that tasty, but filled a small hole!
Just a selection of the ice-cream cakes from the Coldstone Creamery freezers!
