The stars aligned (in the form of generous gifts & cheap groupons) and we headed out on our own little winter break. A 45 minute drive found us at a hotel with an indoor water park. We pulled in 15 minutes before the pool closed for the night and the kids ran into the water as fast as they could. For the next 20 hours or so, our little family of 6 laughed, swam, cuddled, and swam some more. Ella remembered that she is part fish and begged us to race her down the water slide again and again. Drew sulked for awhile after the life guard kicked him out of the hot tub. Tyler karate chopped every wave in the wave pool and his little shadow, Colby, mimicked his every move. We only saw one other family during our stay - it felt like our pool!!
Ty's smile says it all :)
