Today we visited a water park for a few hours, which was a very special treat for the boys. We were kindly included on a guest list after organizing a giveaway for the resort, and both boys had SO much fun. The idea of me wearing a swimsuit at a busy tourist destination is not something I often look forward to - but it was fun! It was not crowded, the water park was very nice (and new) with lots for the kids to do, and the staff there was so friendly. Both boys loved the slides and lazy river. A is suddenly at the age where he is now a big kid (eek!) and LOVED the super fast tube slides. He could not get enough and went over and over (and over) with his dad as G and I floated happily along in the super warm lazy river on a double tube watching the world go by.
It is such a big difference as the kids get older - I am slowly adjusting to the idea that we can do things and go places without absolute chaos (those of you with two or more spunky under 5's know what I'm talking about). A is now old enough to be more independent and help out and G is big enough to do his thing while sticking close to me. They were great today and we had such a nice time together as a family. Ahhh.
Tomorrow we switch gears for an organic farm tour - can't wait!
