Dang, I wish I could make it! (Insert various other words in place of dang) My grandmother-in-law is turning 100 the following weekend and there's a big party (understandedly). So my in-laws can't come here the weekend of Photostock and watch my toddler and 4 dogs (hubby is deployed ). My parents will be in Scotland. So I'll probably just be there in spirit.

I stayed at the Best Western in '09 and it was nice. Their breakfast was pretty good, too. The only thing I didn't like about it was that I wasn't right in all the action at the Birchwood. But some of that was my fault for not hanging out up there later.
