    My Trip Report

    This won't be a live report, maybe parts will be, but for the most part, I'll try to do an update after each day.

    The pre trip report can be found here explaining more things in detail. Some things are still being kept quiet (for reasons that will be announced later).

    Southwest flight (direct out of CLE) is on time and hoping the weather cooperates for us to get out. Last time we flew we had a ground stop (going to Disney with a 3 and 5 year old) and had to deplane. So that was fun. Looks like storms in the morning which would cancel my daughter's t-ball game (no loss) but she has pictures at 10am (ugh).

    There's a large group of us, 18, on the flight out and 24 in the group total. Just got the kids down for bed, now it's time to finish packing and get some rest. It's going to be a long day tomorrow.

    Our entire stay will be at Delano with a room booked at Cosmo for the fountains for the newbies (we have 6) so it will be a good time!

    I have the app so I'll be posting pictures of some things as we go along, such as our liquor order pickup... :drunk:

    Well our hot water heater took a dump. Fantastic. At least the kids had a hot shower.

    @mccann you inspired me to wear the suit. Ok not really but it’s paying homage to a friend who can’t go. He had his knee replaced the other week and he asked me to wear it.

    Nope. But we did live in Parma Heights before moving to Broadview Heights.

    Lol. For those that don’t know Parma. Well, you’re missing out. The plastic flamingo is the state bird.

    Good luck!

    LOL...I love the hubster! Style just isn't one of his strong suits (pun intended).

    Come on @blkshirt, let's see some more wardrobe.

    The suit was it. It’s actually a friends who couldn’t make the trip due to having a knee replacement done.

    Let’s just say I may or may not had a small encounter after doing the High Roller with an escalator, flip flops and trying to go up an escalator that was going down.

    Last day is today, we fly home tomorrow. Will update tomorrow or Thursday with pictures.

    To answer the one question about eating with 26 people everybody is doing their own thing. We had Brunch at Border Grill on Sunday and it was AMAZEBALLS!

    Some pics from that...

    Are you doing a lot of activities/ dinners with the entire group? 22 is a lot of cats to herd!
