At Aiden's birthday party we promised him and Anthony that we would be going on a family outing, just the five of us, very soon. That was in February! Due to Patrick's work schedule and other conflicts, it just wasn't happening. On Easter Sunday we realized that, due to some rescheduling at work, Patrick suddenly, unexpectedly had two days off in a row! That just doesn't happen! We spontaneously decided to take that trip and try out the new swimsuits the children got in their Easter baskets! We drove an hour north of us, to Rockford, Illinois, and stayed the night at the Clock Tower Resort and played at the Coco Key Water Resort.
Ready to swim! Can you see that Anthony's new swimsuit is turned up at the waist? That's to try and keep it on! We forgot to try it on him before we got to the resort and he was so excited to swim, we didn't have time to go exchange it for a smaller size! It's huge on him! Half the world has now seen his little hiney. We pulled it up fifteen million times over the course of the next two days!
Little Miss in her first swimsuit. Also too big for her, but not as big as I thought it would be. It is near impossible to find a swimsuit for a seven pound baby! "We're doing what Mom?"
Sliding! Aiden on the left with the blue life jacket, Anthony on the right in the yellow.
Two little fish!
I'm liking this swimming thing!
The third little fish!!!
Whew! Lots of fun swimming! In our jammies, watching cartoons before bed.
Lots of fun together!
Patrick and the boys literally closed down the park on Monday! They swam from 10am to 3pm, broke for an hour for lunch, and then swam from 4pm to 7:30pm. After lunch Abby and I opted to go shopping instead of back to the pool. When we finished dinner I changed all of the kids into jammies and we headed back to Sugar Grove. As I was changing Aiden into his jammies he said, "Mommy, I'm ready to sleep in the van!" He barely had his seatbelt on before he handed Patrick his glasses! He's never done that! They all slept until 8 this morning. I'm liking the waterpark!!!! We had a great time on our spontaneous mini vacation!
