When Jodi gave me my Christmas gift (a year's worth of planned out date nights) he included a few family fun weekends that he was also committed to planning. This weekend was our first for 2012 - a trip to Key Lime Cove water park in Gurnee, IL. We had such a fun time - I loved that place!
And Paeton loved skee ball as usual. Her percentage of balls staying on the ramp is about 50%. Everyone quickly learns not to play next to her.
Evan and I came back to the room earlier than Paeton and Jodi on Friday night and he found a lot of joy in checking himself out in the mirror.
When we got back, we immediately jumped into swimsuits, checked out of our room and hit the pool so we could get good seats. We got a set of 3 chaise lounges and 2 tables - we were stoked because it's so hard to get the chaise lounges. Paeton was completely fearless at this place. I couldn't believe the height of the slides she would go down on her own. I unfortunately didn't get any shots because I was on Evan duty and I felt like the camera would get wet no matter where I took it.
Evan took a great nap on one of the lounges.
When Jodi went to get the car, the kids and I ran into a balloon maker. Paeton got a flower and Evan got a frog. He did a good job! He's been doing this for 41 years and he liked to chat :)
We continued our Family Fun Weekend on Sunday with a trip to the zoo. We rode the train first like always.
We finished off our weekend by grilling out steaks and delicious garlic bread. Jodi had gone for a run earlier and by the time he was grilling our dinner I could tell he had gotten sunburnt. Crazy....in March....in Wisconsin! Don't doubt this state!
Thanks honey for planning a great weekend - I love your commitment to this family.
