We almost made it.
We just needed about 8 more hours.
But the last night of our hotel adventure we woke up at 1:30 am to the alarm sirens and lights flashing.
Ryan and I sprang out of bed, raced to the living room where the boys were out of bed and looking scared.
We could hear Eden screaming, Ryan ran to grab her.
Tessa was still asleep!
I felt wet carpet with my toes and I looked at the front door and saw water seeping in!I opened the front door and saw that our whole hallway was flooded. I felt relieved, a flood is way better than a fire! We started throwing our stuff up on the beds to keep it dry.
And Tessa was STILL asleep! The alarms were screaming ear piercing screams the whole time. I woke her up to have her get shoes on and she just rolled over and pulled the covers back over her head! I told her alarms were going off and she finally rolled out of bed.
We grabbed the kids and evacuated.
The hot water pipe in the mechanical room (which was across the room from us) had burst, and the heat had caused the fire alarms to go off.
(sorry for the small pic, taken with Ryan's phone).
The kids and I sat in the car and watched Dora until about 3 am, Ryan gathered all of our stuff together...
...some of the stuff we failed to throw up on the beds was FLOATING by the time he went back up...
...and we headed to his parent's house for the night.
Tired, but thankful everyone was ok :)
Our cRaZiEsT hotel experience ever!
