We decided on a last minute trip to an indoor waterpark, Kalahari in Ohio. Its about 2 & 1/2 hours from here by car. We got a great deal & went with a friend of mine, her husband & their 3 year old. I was nervous as L has never been swimming and I thought if he didn't like it things would be rough. Well, he LOVED it! He is a little water baby!
Here are my two men! I love this photo, I think its one of the best pictures I have of the two of them. We drove an hour out of our way on the way home (which meant over 3 & 1/2 hours to get home!) just to go eat at the Cheesecake Factory. Let me tell you it was SO worth it. I would drive that far just to eat there is Les would let me! We had lettuce wraps, corn fritters & susage & cheese stuffed olives to share (oh my it was amazing!) and then of course the cheesecake...Les had white chocolate caramel macademia nut and I had red velvet (AWESOME! serisously). My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
We spent some time in the arcade workign hard to win Logan a keepsake (we should have just taken teh $$ to the gift shop but it was fun!). Logan was all snuggled in my ring sling, I LOVE that thing!
He fell asleep and was so cozy in there! I can't believe he still fits in there that way!Look at those little feet stickign out! melt my heart.
Isnt' he so cute!? I had to use the opportunity to dress him tropoical even tho it was just a pretend paradise!
Here is our little family on our first vacation. Logan did pretty well, if we could afford it I would head off some place tropical for real!
We brought the pack & play which Logan slept in for some of the night but he found the hotel bed much more comfy! les and I were looking forward to EACH sleeping in our own queen size bed and instead I had a bedmate afterall!
Look at that smile! I just love this little boy so much. Here he is at a lunchtime break in the room
My little fish fell asleep both days in my arms while we were tubeing on the lazy river. I just stayed on it and went around like 4 times. He was awake a few times when we went thru it and we went under a few waterfalls, he just laughed! He is hilarious.
Here's daddy and Logan, he was getting sleepy here. His swimsuit was SO cute, I forgot to get a pic of it without the life jacket, we are super safety freaks especially when it comes to water & carseats!
Daddy floating Logan in the water, he loved this so much, jsut kicked and floated! I can't wait to get him in swimming lessons!
Daddy tried to put him on a tube for pics and he wasn't a big fan at all! The tears were gone as soon as daddy picked him up tho!
Here he is floating away! He was in the pool for a long time on our full day there, from about 10am-5ish PM with a short lunch break. I just nursed right beside the pool I don't think anyone even noticed!
Momma & Logan in the wave pool. Notice how I strategically placed Logan in front of me to try and hide my awful body, which is certainly a work in progress, much progress is still needed.
haha I love this pic! Logan is ALWAYS picking things up with his feet, I think its hilarious.
Here is my happy little monkey playing before bed! These are two of his favourite toys, his winkle & his links
We had such a great time, it was a nice break and a nice family recharge it can be so hard in the day to day grind to appreciate one another and all of our many many blessings.
