Willow Valley Fun!

So, since we are expecting a baby smack dab in the middle of this summer, Chad decided to take a week off now so we can do a few fun family things before it gets too crazy around here. One of the things we decided to do was to take an overnight trip to Willow Valley Resort in Lancaster. I had heard that they had a great indoor pool and kids water park, so even though putting on a swimsuit was not high on my list of priorities, I knew the kids would LOVE IT so off we went. They have some really good packages that include meals and such ... especially when you go in the middle of the week. We all had a great time! Audrey even cried when it was time to go because she really did not want to leave.

Anyhow, we arrived on Thursday, and the first item of business? Jumping on the bed, of course!

Next item of business? Check out the pool!

Carter doing what Carter does best in water ... SPLASHING!

Audrey checking out part of the water park.

AND .... more splashing ... big surprise. You should see our bathroom after he gets out of the tub.

We took a brief hiatus for checking out the facility, eating dinner at a local pizza place, and playing at the playground, and then we were back to ...

You guessed it ... swimming again.

By this time, everyone was way tired so off to bed they go. Well ... it took Mommy sitting next to Carter (aka the little instigator) but eventually they fell asleep ... at 10 pm. Shortly followed by Mommy & Daddy. Where do they get their energy?

The next morning we had a big breakfast at the "breakfast smorgasbord" and then once again, you guessed it, we were off to the pool. The kids couldn't get enough :)

Mr. "Up till 10pm and up at 7 am" is getting tired ...

Chad did this cool action sequence of Audrey jumping in the pool:
She is becoming quite the fish lately!

Hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!
