Our second stop of the trip was in Panama City. We stayed in a beach side hotel that had a beautiful view but some shady clientele.
The weather was in the low 70s while we were there, so there was no way I was getting in the water. The chilly breeze did not seem to stop the kids though.
The hotel had an awesome pool with a waterfall and a huge hot tub, so after our time down at the beach we all warmed up in hot tub.
(we always have to get a jumping picture)
I spent my time building castes and collecting shells
Another cool feature of the hotel is that they showed movies on the side of the building. We got to see Nut Job while sitting poolside with complimentary popcorn and cookies!
The next morning was Easter. Instead of finding a service to go to, we decided to read the Resurrection story together as a family while sitting on our balcony.
(This is a shot from our balcony of some dolphins that decided to swim by while we were reading.)
So while we could have done without the drunken yelling that went on until 2am and all the flashy tourist traps that lured our kids in and left them disappointed when we found out it would cost over $100 to all go do it....Panama City did have beautiful beaches and lots of shells (which are always free)
