We went with Craig's dad and stepmom and it worked really well for us. They let Caedmon and Liesel stay in their room while we just had Jensen in our room. It was a nice little break. Here are the kids checking out the cool kid bunk beds in their room. Jensen is excited but has no idea at this point, those beds are not for him.
Jensen's favorite thing to do was sit on this wave runner in the kiddie area. It did not move, but you got to spray water. He would sit on this thing for 20 minutes at a time or more. When you tried to get him off to go do something else, he would point to get back on. Craig and Jensen look cute on the wave runner. Who wouldn't melt at Jensen's adorable face? "Sure Jensen, we can waste another 30 minutes on this thing!"
It was nice having Craig's dad and Janice there because we actually go to ride some rides and leave Jensen with them. As long as he was on the wave runner, he was good. Hehe! He also liked going down one of the kids slides and having Opa wait for him at the bottom. Walking up the many, many stairs (sometimes even carrying a raft) made me realize I was older than I thought. I remember going to water parks when I was a kid and having all the energy in the world walking up the slides. Yet, while I am only 35 years old, I saw kids and teenagers pass me on the stairs. Liesel and Caedmon both would go ahead of me and say "Hurry up Mom!" LOL!!! I think I need to work out more. Ha!
Liesel spent a lot of time in the wave pool . I think that became her favorite thing to do. Here is Liesel and Caedmon in the wave pool.
Liesel waited for her turn patiently and she was off!
Liesel wasn't as willing to be completely soaked by the bucket. She waited on the outside while playing in one of the sprinklers.
She would stand on the edge when the bucket was falling. Obviously Caedmon felt the effects more. Yet, they both seem unwilling to pose for the picture. I wonder why??? HeHe!
