Last week, we were able to go on a wonderful (and much needed) getaway with our family! Mom and Dad took us to Moody Gardens for a few days. We met Coy, Krystal and the boys there. It was so much fun just to hang around the pool and play in the water...pretty much the whole time! We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and got checked in and Lynzi was immediately ready to get in her swim suit (we left right after her last swim lesson!) So we unloaded, changed into our suits and headed for the pool! If you saw a few posts back...you'll remember that I said Lynzi was really skittish of the water and getting her head wet or even if we let a pinky loose from her...she'd pretty much freak out (even though she LOVES being in the water, as long as you're 100% with her!) Well, she made a BREAKTHROUGH on the first day of vacation! YAY LYNZI! She was going underwater and loving it (the day before she didn't even like you to rinse her head in the bathtub!) So it was a great start to a vacation full of water fun.
The next day we went to the Palm Beach water park that is part of Moody Gardens. They have several pools and sandy beaches and a kiddy play land with 2 water slides and water buckets and squirters and a big water tank that dumps water every few minutes and they also have a sprinkler water spray area. So we hung out there for the afternoon...then back to the pool after lunch. The hotel had a kid's club and they gave each kid a goody bag at check in with cute little pirate themed toys in it. They had a pirate jumpy house and evening activities (smores by the fire pit, games, clowns, balloons, face paint, etc!)
The last day, we started by the pool. Then after checkout...we went over to the pyramids and ended up getting a great deal on day pass tickets. So even though we weren't even planning on going over there...we ended up spending half the day there and I'm glad we did.
Thanks Mom and Dad...FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
Mirror, Mirror....I'm ready to go swimming!
Look who's sitting up now?!?! Yep, Asher!!! He start sitting up while we were there. I sat him up on the bed to see how he would do and he stayed sitting up (for a few seconds anyways)! So, he was right at 5 1/2 months when he began sitting up.
YAY ASHER!!! :)
