Mini Kid Vacation & Me Challenge - Week 17

Linking up with Dolli-Mama's ME challenge! Thanks Dolli-Mama!!



Photobucket


This week I took 3 vacation days off of work (major ME time in my book) to take Molly and Luke to the Great Wolf Lodge (indoor water park)in Texas. We left home Wednesday morning and got back early this afternoon. It was around a 3 hour drive to and from for us. Not to bad at all. I used that time to catch up on some blog reading (more ME time). We arrived there around noon. The kids were so excited to go swimming, but I doubt they expected it would be that much fun! :) There was this area that was perfect for them. The water at the highest went up to their waist. The first day we followed them around, but the second day we stood on the
sidelines (within 10 feet or so)(there also were 2 lifeguards walking amongst the kids). There were two slides that they went up and down all by themselves. They played with the other kids too. It was a joy to see them turning into preschoolers! Yes, it tugged on my heart, but I am so very excited for them. So I am counting this much needed and fun filled mini-vacation as my ME time this week! You have to excuse these pictures, but they were taken with my phone.

What a wonderful little treat! It sounds like so much fun, and it clearly looks as though they enjoyed themselves!

Have a good weekend!

So close! You were so close! I own a restaurant just a few miles away from Great Wolf. :) I'm glad you guys had so much fun. We love it there too... so perfect for little ones!

Oh fun!!! We have an indoor water park nearby. It's a good idea for next winter when we all have the blahs. I was looking at lifejackets like your kiddos were wearing when I was shopping today. I want to get one for the peapod before we go camping. Do you recommend them?

LOVE it! They look like they are having so much fun!
I didn't know there was a Great Wolf Lodge in Texas. I'll have to check that out!
Also, where did you get the life vests? I need a new one for Mr. Mischief.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

They look like they had the best fun! Little Molly looks divine in the bright pink life jacket. I am glad you had a few days off - you totally deserve it x

We need one of these places in Canada. I want to sit on one of those jet-ski type of rides and squirt water out too!

Your wee ones are adorable!

I didn't realize they had such a great area for the little kids. We might have to take out children now. :)

Thanks for visiting and following A Helicopter Mom! I'm following back and look forward to reading more about you.

Have a great weekend!
