Spa Round 2 - The Amators Adventure Club

Spa Round 2

The Colombians love any excuse to throw a party.   They even have 1 word for what we call a “going away party”.  They call it a despedida (a lot less klude-y, in my opinion).  I’ve seen enough people leave the office to know that I would have to endure some sort of party (or worse, ceremony) but I hadn’t expected that for Evelyn.  In retrospect, it makes sense.  She made her own friends here and she had a lively social life in the park.  So when Yannet raised the idea of throwing her a little something, I didn’t hesitate to say yes.

Yannet started with, “So… normally there is cake and treats and some other things…”  Ok – sounds easy enough.  “….But I was thinking of something a little different if you’re ok with it, Señora Traci.”  Great – I like different.  “There is a spa that throws kids parties.  Evie could invite her 5 girlfriends to go with her to the spa.”  Interesting – but if this costs anywhere in the ballpark of what a spa day costs me, it’s a no.  “It’s about $10 per child and they each get a massage, time in the whirlpool, a little facial, and a body scrub.”  Sure, why not?!  This sounds like a  hoot.  

By the way, I didn’t go it alone with 6 little girls.  Every little girl had a nanny accompany her to the party (in full disclosure: including mine, so temper the judge-y {Mom – this means you}).  Obviously we’re not rich, so the lifestyle is going away real quick.  For the record, nannies are every bit as awesome as you would think after watching Mary Poppins.

Yannet arranged the whole thing.  On the day, she, Evie and I piled into an Uber and left for the spa.  What I hadn’t bargained on was WHICH spa.  I never considered that it might the same spa in which Scott and I had our couples massage.  Sure enough…

We walked in and were escorted into the room beside the room Scott and I had been assigned.  So now the ‘balloons’ part of the equation makes sense, right?  Kids party by day, romantic(?)/adult party by night.  Got it.  I couldn’t control my giggles.  Luckily Evie and her 5 little girlfriends were so entertained and lively no one noticed me in the corner snickering.  Same distinct beach scene on the wall (someone is desperate to get to Asia).

What a fun afternoon.  The romantic/friendly/Turkish bath mindgame only went down in my head.  Everyone had a lovely time and the pictures of the girls are too sweet.  We made another great memory thanks to the thoughtfulness of Yannet.  ♥
