Vacation: Days 4-7

On day 4 of our vacation we left to go about 1 hour south to stay at a hotel for a couple nights. We went to this particular hotel for 2 reasons: they give a 25% discount to pastors, and they had a small water “park” at the hotel. It was perfect for our kids (and kids through grade school). It was so much fun to watch our kids play in the water and go down the water slide time after time, after time, after time…They got good and tired out, and we had a few meltdowns due to the exhaustion, but they did so much better than I expected. We also were told about a small children’s museum about 20 minutes away from the hotel so we went to check it out–it was a lot of fun!!!!! I would say it was more of a discovery zone, but whatever, it was FUN and totally created for children. We ended our time visiting some good friends of ours, two different couples. They both used to live and serve in the community that we live but have since been called to a new church to serve together. It was fantastic to see them, let our kids play together, let the kids play with their “grandparents” and do nothing on Sunday at church but sit, sing, worship and listen to the preaching. And, I also loved sitting next to my husband for the morning! We had a great vacation, didn’t get any rest, but it was so nice to be away from home and just have a change of scenery. Oh, and please forgive the graininess of the photos. For some reason I totally forgot to take my camera to the museum and didn’t want to have it in the pool area…
