Our weekend

We had such a fun family weekend!! The kids are exhausted and well so are we!! I cannot believe we are having another snow storm where everything is cancelled. Amazing! However this time I am super glad that my sweet husband is home safe and sound!!

I would tell that I am downloading all of his wonderful Haiti pictures!! However he took NONE!! Yes that is right ZERO!! So when others start to download their pictures I will be borrowing a bunch! I know this is his 5th trip and he didn't want to take the same pictures over and over. However I would have like a few!! :)
That is what happens when you are married to the Team leader!!

We did take a few pictures and a video of our time at Splash Universe so I will be adding those to this post.

To start out Nathan's flight finally arrived at 2:40 pm on Thursday. Immiedately after we drove over to Dundee, Michigan to our hotel. It was a holiday inn express that was right next to Cabela's. It was a beautiful hotel and the waterpark is hooked right too it. For those of you that have been to Great wolf lodge it is about 1/2 half the size of it. It was perfect. The kids had a blast. It had 2 big slides, 3 smaller sides in the fort, a kiddie pool, a nice lazy river and then it had a famil spa that was just off of the lazy river where the kids had fun swimming around. This spa wasn't not a hot one. There was a hot tub just for adults and that was wonderful for just a little haven away while the kids were having a blast on the slides. All of the kids could go on the slides without us having to go with them so they had a ton of fun and didn't have to wait for a parent.

This was our living area

Four of the kids slept here. They also had their own TV!! It was like having their own room!

We had our own seperate room.

Caleb hanging out!

I have a video too that I will work on uploading.

That looks like a blast! I'm so glad you guys were still able to go after all of the flight issues. I'm thinking we need to take a home group trip there sometime!! :)

It looks like a ton of fun! I've seen the hotel, but I've never been there....along with what Tammy said, if you need a babysitter ;)

It looks like a great family place!

I'm so glad you had a good time. I think the smaller place might be even nicer than the overwhelming bigger parks.
Nice too that you have a whole day to do nothing but relax!

Looks like fun! Maybe we'll have to try that one! I know Steve would love being near Cabela's!

Terri said...

How much fun is that. I didn't know there was something like that over there.

What a fun time - especially with the sub zero weather we're having! Glad your hubby made it home safe and sound.
