After lunch we were back on the road and reached the lodge around 4:00pm. Within minutes we were checked in and made it to our room. The "standard" room is spacious enough, but not super fancy or anything.
After we settled in the room, the kids and I suited up and headed down to the water park. To say it was awesome is an understatement! We had a ball.
The water park has 3 large slides which require tubes and two smaller slides that are just regular water slides. I loved them. There is also a floating river, a small pool, a basketball pool, a children's water scape area, the main "jungle gym" water scape area and two Jacuzzis. I was extremely impressed with the amount of life guards on duty and the overall cleanliness of the facility. I'm looking forward to a return visit.
Thursday evening, after the park closed, the kids wanted to head over to the arcade. Again, we spent some quality family fun time playing games and winning tickets for prizes.
On Friday, we spend the morning and early part of the afternoon at the water park. We decided to take a quick trip over to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. I love the dunes, but I do not love the hike up the dunes! However, the kids were crazy quick and it was a real challenge for this momma to keep up! But I did it and LOVED it.
I'm totally in love with my beautiful State!
Check back tomorrow for Part 2 of my mini-vacation.
