This past weekend we got to go on a little family vacation to the water park capitol of the world. Perfect timing since Matt is going back to school next week, it gave us some good quality bonding time. Anyway, our friends call us up and say "Hey, you guys want to go to WI Dells over Labor Day?"and we were like "Oh, we don't know, let us think about it. Umm, YEAH!" They have a timeshare and things get messed up and somehow they got double booked. So not only do we get to go away for 4 days but it was basically FREE! And not only was it a little hotel room all to ourselves, we walked into a complete decked out 1 room condo complete with full kitchen, dining room, living room, separate bedroom and a bathroom that was larger than our house. (Ok, not really but it was huge... like a woman's dream bathroom.) What made it even better was we were able to bring food to cook there so we saved even more money that way.
So after we got there and I unpacked all of our stuff (does anyone else unpack when they stay somewhere? I feel more at home or something when I do that...and it's just fun) we got our suits on and hit the water. With our passes we had access to like 4 indoor and 4 outdoor parks so that's basically where we stayed the rest of the vacation. The kids LOVED it, especially Alexa. And I'm not going to lie, Matt and I had so much fun too...do I dare say more fun? It did not take Alexa long to just jump in and go. I wasn't sure if she would or I would want her going down the big slides but after about 10 minutes of day one she was flying down them all by herself. I had so much fun just watching her literally scream for hours from pure joy! Braden spent quite a bit of time getting wet too. I think his favorite part was sitting on my lap floating down the lazy river waving to everyone. He made more friends in 4 days then I have my entire life, I guess that's what big blue eyes and chubby checks can do, huh? Anyway, the weekend was perfect. We had fun just relaxing and hanging out and not thinking about anything else. The best part? Our children were angels! The entire time! We still can't believe it. Just kidding....kinda. :)
I actually didn't get too many pictures from the weekend because: a) I didn't want to get my camera wet or taken, and b) I was just having too much fun. Here are a few I did get.
Not only did we have all the water parks but they had a HUGE indoor dry climby play thing. It was so much fun and it was nice to take a little break from water like once a day and play there instead.
And when you think you couldn't possibly have anymore fun in one day, you get back to your room and play some more...in the shower. :)
