We wanted to do something fun with the grkids , so we decided to go to a water park and have a "mini staycation" . We had never done this before. We stayed one night at the Pointe South Mountain Resort.

Right after getting to our hotel suite, we changed into our suits, took a few pics and headed for the main attraction"....the OASIS .....7 acre...water park.

It is out there, somewhere...can you see it within the trees?

"Can we P-L-E-A-S-=E "GO" now?" PRETTY please?

Where we spent the most time was tubing down the lazy river......

There were also other options to chose from......the hot tub...the wave pool and 3 water slides

I have got a "HUGE" wedgie

WHEEEEEEEEEEEE I went down this slide 4X in a row. I loved it so much and I think I was the only grma who did. This one is different from the one the boys went down. I would not go down the one they went on.

After we had played awhile....we went to DENNY`S and had a fun time at dinner.

The next morning we ate breakfast again at DENNY`S

Husband was entertaining us by showing us he could drink 2 sodas at one time.

" are still our "HERO" we know where we get our talent.

Checkout time was was 11:a/m but we could stay and use the water park for the rest of the day. We put our luggage in the car and back to the water park we went.

WE relaxed by the lazy river and water slides. We had perfect weather on both days. it was overcast so we didn`t "scortch from the suns` rays

Here is the menu that we could order from...but didn`t......$13 for a hamburger (doesn`t say that you get fries with it...but I doubt it.)

This is why we ate a really good breakfast at DENNY`S emoticon

Grkids & daughter were really appreciative of our staycation

"THANK YOU, Pa Pa & Rah Rah ( nickname from grson Matt because as a baby he could not say Grandma)

We left the park about 3:30 p/m on Friday afternoon .Here are some fun photos we took on our way out.

It was so much fun....I had as much fun as the grkids . I didn`t know what to expect . We hope we can do it again next month before the summer rates go back up. What a great way to spend time with family and keep cool at the same time.

The cost for the entire stay was $218..... a real bargain for 5 people in a 2 room resort suite.

We are all about the grkids ,so we exchanged another vacation we were going to take in the fall, to this one, so we could make more family memories.

Now I am back home catching up on "words with friends" & SP friends

    It looks like it was so much fun.

    That was a LOT of food at Denny's!

    I want to do the lazy river! The slide looks like fun too.

    Was anyone else there? It looks like you had the place to yourself. Is it less expensive in the summer because it's so hot?

    I know you all had so much fun because you all have a great sense of humor. These memories you've made are priceless!

    This looks like a great place to go! What wonderful memories you are making with your grandchildren. I only have one comment on you though. Hope you see it as a compliment- The top you were wearing at Denny's is TOO BIG on you. You have this wonderful shape now Callie, don't hide it in clothes too big for you!!! XOXO Pat
