Water Park Mini Vacation

To celebrate my son's graduation from college, our family spent the weekend at an indoor waterpark.
If you've never been, it is a unique experience.

  •  Bring water shoes
  • Bring bagels or bread to toast in the hotel breakfast nook, and your own soda.  The facility charges at least double the usual price for these commodities.  
  • Bring beach towels for the water park, the ones supplied aren't sufficient.
  • Arrive Friday if you can, and be sure to visit the waterpark, the lines are the shortest this evening.
  • Try every ride at least once.  (I'll admit that I didn't try the boogie boarding)
My favorite memories of the weekend were playing board games together, floating down the lazy river with my youngest grand sound asleep on my lap, riding the family raft and the water slide (the green one was the fastest), hanging out in our family suite together, and taking turns playing "Angry Birds" with two of my grands snuggled in an armchair.

Family vacations are the best!
Happy Summertime,

  5. I went to an indoor water park in TN once. It was pretty neat!

  6. I've always been fascinated by indoor water parks (since there's no snow where we live) it's even got indoor boogie boarding? I love boogie boarding.
