Weekend Trip Recap

This past weekend was so much fun! We had horrible weather on Friday, so what should have been a two hour drive took us over three hours and we didn’t end up getting there until about 10:30. So we checked in and went to bed…or tried to at least…my daughter was still watching Hannah Montanna at 12:00 :)

The next morning we woke up and the boys and kids got ready for the water park, while my sister-in-law and I headed to our pedicures. The pedicures were 1 ½ hours! They were so nice! By the time we were done and met up with hubbies and the kiddos it was lunch time, and the kids were exhausted!

We grabbed some lunch and took it up to our rooms to eat. We tried to plug in the Wii, but the stupid hotel disabled the menu, so we weren’t able to switch the TV/Video over. Ugghhh! We ended up hanging out and talking and watching TV until about 4:00 when we decided the kids had to get naps in. So we all slept until about 6:00, which was so nice!

We headed over to dinner at TGI Friday’s, which was one of the two restaurants in the hotel, so you can imagine it was crowded. We checked in and they told us it would be a 40 minute wait but there was a kids room the kids could play in. We went to check it out and it turns out it was a babysitting service! They had a big screen TV with Cars playing and you just signed your kids in and came back and got them when your table was called. We headed over to the bar to get a drink! The only bad thing was that our wait turned out to only be about 20 minutes, so we didn’t get the full benefit of drinks without the kids.

After dinner we had every intention of going back to the water park, but we were too full and tired afterwards, so we headed to bed. The next morning we packed our stuff up and headed back down to the water park. The kids were so good and it had something for every age! I even saw some newborns being dunked in the water!

After a few hours we packed the car up and headed home. The kids didn’t sleep in the car, so we were able to all take naps when we got home.

It was so relaxing! A very nice getaway for the weekend. And believe it or not, I didn’t take a single picture. When I remembered to take some, we were in the water park and the humidity was making my lens a mess, so we scrapped the idea. Oh well, we still had a blast!

Sometimes it's better to forget about the camera and just "be there"... (that's why I have very few photos of my kids' birthday parties...)

Sounds like everyone had a terrific time!
