Our Girl's 6th Birthday

This year our daughter wanted to "go to the beach" for her birthday like we did for her Daddy's birthday. Well...a few thoughts came to my head:
1. I think you have to be 40 before you get to have a beach trip for your birthday.
2. Our girl is not a big fan of long car rides when traveling.
3. You probably won't be able to swim in late October.
So...we started thinking of places we could go that were relatively close to home, that had an indoor pool, and that wouldn't break the bank.
Here's what we came up with:
A room at the Westin Peachtree Plaza on the 61st floor:
Elevator where you had to insert your room key to access your floor:
View from our room:
Indoor pool with retractable roof:

And...a birthday lunch at The Sundial:

Close to home...check.
Indoor pool...check.
Reasonable rate...check.

We all had a great time, and I think it was a big success with the birthday girl!

How creative are YOU?! What a great idea. You forget how much the excitement of things like a card key and a pool make such a big splash! Happy Birthday to your sweet girl.
