OK… I’m going to be blogging a bit out of order and I haven’t blogged last week yet but we had a great day today and I want to remember every minute of it.
The Legends at Village West shopping area has been running a special, turn in $75 of receipts in with an online coupon and get a free ticket to Schlitterbahn Water Park. We went shopping last weekend when Jim’s sister and her family were in town and got enough for one ticket. Jim turned it in Friday and found out they don’t take any information from you so we could get another one (the website said one per person/family). Then I found out that the Target is considered part of the shopping center… well that’s a no brainer… how hard is it to spend $75 at Target! And it’s stuff we would have to buy anyway. So last night we went shopping and got our second ticket (Robert is free since he’s under three).
Last night I told Robert when I tucked him in that we had a surprise for him today. When he got up Jim dressed him for the water park. I told him we were going to go play in water… he went out in the back yard and grabbed the hose. He was a bit confused when I told him that we needed to get in the car.
When we got there he was super excited.
He had to test out the water and it took him a few minutes of checking it out to get used to it. It’s so funny how cautious he gets in new situations.
He wanted me to go down the slides with him at first.
After a while he was totally into it.
We went over to the pirate area. He climbed on the boat and yelled, “I’m a pirate, AAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!” I died laughing… where does he come up with this???
I swam some with him.
We floated on the lazy river some. Didn’t get any pictures but he sat up on the side of the tube like a big guy. At one point he told me, “Mama! This is not the ocean”. He also was joking that his feet were fish in the water.
We were there for about four hours before we decided it was time to head home. Robert fell asleep in the car on the way home. I call this Schlitter-faced.
