We got to our hotel in the late afternoon. We stayed at the Drury Plaza Hotel, which is a great, family-owned chain of hotels. When we checked in, they even gave us a discount on our room rate! Our stay included an excellent hot breakfast, free popcorn and drinks all evening, and even a simple dinner were able to do twice. We went swimming in the hotel pool every evening.
The next day was our day to visit Sr. Mary Elizabeth, so after breakfast, we headed over to her convent. We had not been able to visit her since 2011, so everyone was excited to finally get there. We really enjoyed our time with her.
