Legoland Water Park // August 2016

Last weekend, we finally went to the Legoland Water Park! We have been to the park several times, but this time we went to go to the water park itself. We did do a few rides before the water park opened, but the rest of time was spent splashing in the water.

Kenley’s favorite Lego Friend, Emma!

Untitled

Greg and Crosby posing by Greg’s future car…made out of Legos.

Untitled

Untitled

Kenley rode all of the slides that she could, but she wasn’t a fan of the tunnel slide since it was pitch black the whole ride. She spent majority of the time at the Joker Soaker, which had a lot of different slides in that one area.

Untitled

Greg and I both rode one of the tall water slides. I chose the tunnel slide because it had a less steep incline, but I’ll definitely try the other two next time. I’m not going to lie, they are really tall and I was nervous to go down them, which is completely silly since the height minimum is 48″!

Crosby liked the water slides even though he wasn’t tall enough for some of them, but he really didn’t like water coming straight down on his head so he wouldn’t even go near the slides that had waterfall type features. He really liked playing with the jumbo Legos in the wave pool.

My favorite was the lazy river. I could have stayed there all day. The kids had fun collecting the jumbo Legos and building them on our rafts.

We ended up staying for about two hours before the storms rolled in and we decided to call it a day. We did the lazy river just one more time before we changed into dry clothes, which ended up coming back to bite us since we had to run to the car in the rain and ended up with wet clothes again.

Hopefully we’ll be back to the water park before it closes for the season. If not, definitely again in the spring.

so long summer 2016

Just like that, August arrived, summer camp came to an end and Camp Gilbo began. The kids were out of school and home for ten eleven straight days. We did our best to keep busy and overall the week went well…but it was still very exhausting.

On Monday, we started the week of watching the Olympics!

Untitled

We also went the Orlando Science Center in the afternoon, which worked out well since it turned out to be a rainy day…and also a rainy week.

Untitled

Untitled

Aside from many trips to the YMCA, we also hit up several parks in the area. Greg took them to the “yellow and blue” park twice, they went to our normal park twice, and I took them to a new park after we went to Baby Bootcamp on Wednesday. These kids live for parks.

Untitled

Untitled

The kids had Meet the Teacher on Thursday so we went out to dinner with some friends afterwards. We are super excited about the kids’ teachers and classes this year. Kenley is excited to be back in the same class with some old friends.

Untitled

On Sunday, we played at the Grand Floridian with some friends who were in from New York.

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

We had a busy week and it was hard determining what day it was at any given point.

Untitled

The kids headed back to school on Monday, but it was short lived. They were home by 11:00am due to no air conditioning at the school, a true state of emergency in Florida. Day one, take two, was a success on Tuesday!

Untitled

we thought for sure that we would be the only fools who wanted to go to sea world on saturday evening when it was 95 degrees outside. wrong. it was packed. there are apparently a lot of other crazies out there aside from us.

Untitled

greg and i collapsed on the couch once we got home and watched london has fallen. it was pretty good!

Untitled

sunday included church and errands. kenley and i did a little back to school shopping at target this afternoon too.
