The Staycation

As you know, we took a little trip last week. We drove about 45 minutes away to a beautiful resort.

We ate at fun restaurants where Daisy entertained every one with her Linda Blair impression: No pictures!

We got a special pass to enjoy a lounge at the hotel that served breakfast, snacks and drinks where my rowdy bunch probably should not have been invited: No pictures!

We stayed in a beautiful room that was big enough for a queen sized air mattress to accommodate our many children. The room also had a huge walk-in closet where we were able to set up Daisy's bed so she could sleep in peace while the rest of us watched tv. I meant to get pictures of the room but all I ended up with was shots of the kids in this cool orange chair:





The one place I DID NOT forget my camera is where we spent most of our time and where we had the most fun! The Pools and Waterslide. I even took my camera to the top of the waterslide in an attempt to get some different shots of the kids.



Usually, Daisy does not enjoy the pool but even she had fun cooling off in the water.

Does that look like a baby who's been sick?

Shots from the bottom of the slide.



Daisy waving to the kids as they exited the waterslide.

Two of my favorite shots: Bailey's obvious joy and just Ashton's feet as he flew out of the slide.

We had SO much fun and can't wait to try a new place next year!

Have a great weekend every one!

Ooh, I just love all of the creative shots! The feet coming out of the slide is so funny.

It looks like you did have a great time even with Miss Daisy being under the weather. Hope you weekend is going great too.
