Our kids live for waterparks. Sadly we live in an area where there aren’t very many; if you go north the first thing you come to is Great Wolf Lodge (a 1-hour drive) and if you go south, the best option is Wings & Waves (a 1-hour drive). The latter doesn’t require a hotel stay, and has a great draw – it’s on the property at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum – so when it came time to make good on their 12th-day gift from last Christmas, this was the place.

It happened this time that our neighbor Adam was available to come with! Becky and I both have great memories of family outings that included friends, and we wanted to give this a try.
The day was great. I had just cut my finger pretty badly and had a semi-open wound, so I wasn’t able to go in the water, but the kids disappeared for most of the day and kept themselves very busy. I found a perch on the mezzanine and wrote blog posts and read my book all day, and they got all wrinkly. The day was a great success!
