Sunday was the first day of the contest and I was pretty nervous because I was out of town, going to a water park, and then going to the airport.
We ate breakfast at the hotel (continental breakfast not available) - cost was 2 breakfast buffets and kids eat free. Total including tip $13.83 - kids also had leftover french toast in-room microwave and we had our first cups of coffee with the in-room coffee maker.
Food - eggs, sausage, bacon, bagels, toast, fresh fruit, coffee, juice
Snack and Lunch - packed a styrofoam cooler in trunk of car with ice from hotel - salads, yogurts, grapes, pretzels, carrot sticks, peanut butter (minis), filled water bottles with ice and added the single serving lemonades to each one.
Dinner - Wendy's for my husband - double cheese burger combo and kids shared a 5 piece nuggets, small fries, and drink oop $10.56
I finished my salad and yogurt at the rental car facility.
We made it through the airport by refilling the water bottles with water (after clearing the security gate) from the water cooler and made it through without buying anything.
Monday - We were on vacation for 10 days and I cleaned the fridge before I left. We were out of dairy products, deli meats, and produce. My trip to Caputos:
