Here's one of the official photos of the Grand Hotel from their website. Jim took a lot of pictures during our vacation as well. Be sure to visit his site to see more photos.
The hotel has a dress code after 6 pm. It officially states that men should be in coat and tie and ladies in their finest. Some of the signs list pants as unacceptable for women, but we noticed that they were allowing dressy pant suits for women now.
Here is Sera in some of her finest. It wasn't looking so hot at the end of the night when she dropped her chocolate milk in her lap. The napkin took most of the damage, and the rest did come out when I laundered it. Phew! I'm so glad I packed that stain stick!
The dining room rotates three amazing menus. They also put out a children's buffet each evening. Sera had the choice of ordering her own meal, eating on the buffet, or sharing with us. She ended up eating from the buffet and from our plates, as usual. That child is developing quite the palate.

The next morning at breakfast. You guys eat that normal stuff.

We walked into town to check out the shops. Sera got this really cool book. You can't see it, but on the right side it shows the animal. It appears to be moving when you move the page.
Here she's proudly showing off her monkey shirt.
We stopped in this little alcove for a rest before tackling the big hill in front of the hotel. Sera was thrilled to get out of the stroller. She entertained all the passersby with her jumping and dancing.
She spotted an airplane in this shot. It was very exciting!
This one isn't centered well, and I cut off her right hand. Catching a running and jumping child can be quite the challenge.
