they were so excited!
(and yes, Will lost another tooth- love that gap-toothed grin!)
they (sort of) had their own room with bunk beds and their own tv!!
(they seriously would have been happy just to spend the weekend in the room)We did manage to pull the boys out of the room with the lure of the water park. We had so much fun. It was great to watch them run around and be so excited. Everything there is very family oriented, so it was easy to let them take the lead and have a blast. One thing that was funny to watch, was Will's odd sense of fear. The water park has a multi-level splash tower. There are tons of geysers spraying up from the floor, water cannons, and waterfalls. They were having a great time squirting each other and us (and anyone else walking by...), but suddenly Will was too scared to go up to the next level. This is a completely sturdy structure with rails on both sides, I have no idea why this would be scary. The next place we went was the wave pool. Will immediately swims up to the deep end. He could not touch bottom and is only on 'okay' swimmer. He goes from complete scaredy-cat one minute to fearless wild-man the next. One funny moment in the wave pool. Will had gotten a wave in the face and came up sputtering. I asked him, "Are you okay?" He answers, "Yeah, I'm still alive." Wow, guess it takes a lot for him to not be 'okay'!
(frankly, it was more than a little creepy if you ask me...)
After the bedtime story, there was a showing of How to Train Your Dragon. It was a very cute movie-- all four of us enjoyed it! The boys were exhausted from a busy, exciting day, but they were interested enough in the movie, they managed to stay awake.
Such a great weekend and just the beginning to a fun spring break!
