...finishing up our week.
On Friday, we went to the waterpark in the spooky resort, and surprise surprise, it wasn't creepy at all! It was actually pretty awesome!

|Here come the waves!|

They had a huge play area with slides and tunnels and such. They also has 3 humungous water slides that were really fun - you could choose either a single tube ride, a double tube ride, or a family tube ride. There was even a surfing section:
Andrew is so skinny that he kept flying off to the sides :)
I think this was actually the best indoor water park we have been to, and as my little sister says, we are water park groupies. True story.
On Saturday, we made the drive from Pennsylvania to Connecticut to visit Clan Donaldson! We were greeted by a jumping Lotus and entered their driveway as the bubbles flowed out of Joaquin's machine. Cari had asked if we wanted to take a hike, and after I thought she was telling me to get lost, I realized she meant an actual hike. To a real tower way up high on a mountain. Off we went:
|Oh these two just warm the cockles of my matchmaking heart.|
|Smart Lotus, get in good with the future sister-in-law.|
|Apparently I'm holding up the sky?|
|Looking at the frog eggs, also known as puddle caviar. No it's not, I just made that up.|
|For Cari to reference when people ask her what she does all day.|
"Oh, you know, I just hike up a mountain with one baby strapped to my back and one toddler strapped to my front."
|Red shirt = John-Paul, Black shirt = Andrew, Wet pants = mine from peeing myself while watching them climb Tiki Mountain. Just kidding, Ken assured me it was just like walking up stairs.|
On the way up, Phil said "I feel like we're in a Dora episode. First we walk up the Rocky Hill, then we climb Tiki Mountain, and finally we get to the Tall Tower!"
|We did it, we did it, we did it, yeah!|
|So so gorgeous!|
|The Donaldsons even provided yummy snacks for the weary hikers and their children.|
|Phil handed back one M&M at a time to keep this boy happy.|
|Veronica is the best baby ever and I want her.|
|"Mom take a picture of me sitting on this cute bench!"|
As if the hike wasn't entertaining enough, we returned to Casa Donaldson and Ken whipped up some homemade pizzas and french fries like it was nobody's business. But it should be his business. So good.
|Could it get any hotter in this kitchen???|
I had made a comment on Cari's last post about pizza saying I liked mine with blue cheese, bacon, caramelized onions and a balsamic reduction. Guess what was waiting for me?
