    DAY THIRTEEN

    I slept in a little! Woohoo! Still an early morning to the beach as usual. My SsIL came down pretty early. Kids went to the gym then came down. Everyone made it to the beach at some point. Back to the pool for bingo. No winners. I came up to do laundry - everyone else stayed at the pool.

    Waiting in the lobby for everyone for dinner, Brianna & I went into Glitz for a quick try. Brianna is now calling it "the bank" - as in just gonna run to the bank to get money for dinner. She won $30, I won $10.

    Dinner was at Texas de Brazil - it was amazing as usual. Great service, great food. Everyone raved over the meats. My SIL Ann & I had salad bar only. The food on that salad bar is insane! The best Gouda, amazing artichoke "bottoms" as they were labeled. We ordered 4 desserts & passed them - a bite of each, it was so much fun!

    Back to Lacabana and went to Glitz for a little bit, it's Brianna's last night on the island and she wanted to try her luck once more. No big winners, so she's going back home & gonna get back to work!

    So glad you are all having a blast.
    Sounds like your little girl has grown into an amazing independent "lady"

    Sounds like an overbooking to me and a way to make money instead of lose it, thoughts? I would still do it, lol.

    They were charging her $75 - dumb. Then when she checked in at the airport they offered her $400 in travel vouchers to take a 4pm flight - she agreed, texted me to come pick her up - then said never mind because they had enough people willing to change. Ugh.

    TdB is one of my favorite places, but now we have one close to us, so there is no real draw. 400 bucks would have been a nice bonus to spend a few more hours on the island, too bad it didn't work out for her. Hope she has a safe flight home!
