Water Park Extravaganza/How We Spent Our 11th Anniversary

We spent our anniversary with the girls at a water park hotel in Minnesota.  We had such a great time!  The girls LOVED the water park.  And honestly?  Travis and I loved it just as much.  We are both kids at heart so this vacation was definitely a no-brainer for us.  Water slides? Check. Lazy river? Check. Shooting hoops in the water? Check. Fun little kid area? Check.  Oh, and hot tub?  Checkity check.

Violet actually learned how to say hot tub and requested it often.  It was fun to watch Madeline be so independent and fearless.  And Zella tried some things even though they scared her. 

Eleven years!

Our room was the whirlpool suite.  Their favorite part was watching TV while taking a bath.

Game room fun.

I had to pry Violet off.

Zella was really good at this game.

Classic Zella. (Superstar!)

If you know Zella in real life, you know this pose is standard.  She is hilarious.
The last night we were there we were at the water park from 3:15 to 7 pm when they closed.  We ate pizza by the pool and spent the rest of the time in the water.  We just couldn't pry ourselves away.

We also got to do a little shopping at the outlet mall and Cabela's while we were there.  We found deals (a hobby of mine) and Travis even suggested I go shopping by myself during nap time.  He is a smart man. :)

The girls were very well behaved and it was so nice to spend some time together.  I'll never forget it.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Yours sincerely,

(Am I really going to keep writing yours sincerely?  I can't seem to help myself.)
