Speaking of relaxation.. this is how we began this vacation.. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Pedis with my momma are the best!!
St Louis and stayed at the Yogi Bear Jellystone park? Well, we discovered there is an even better one right outside of Dallas. Sold!
We always pick something that is super touristy. This year, Medieval Times. Dad and I made this decision about a month before we left. I wasn't really sure what all the hype was about but I had fully accepted my boymom status and was willing to give it a go. I have only heard great things so I thought it would be a good time. I was beyond impressed, it was a blast!!They tell you to be prompt.. and they are NOT kidding. This is about 20 minutes early. The line was around the corner.
This is how the boy traveled anytime we were on the grounds of the camp. You could only drive like 2 miles an hour and we were in the Hummer so we figured he could drive. Why not, it is vacation!!
Still hamming it for the camera.
Lego Starwars video games.
Long day at the water park equals passing out in the car ride back to the RV. Note, this is less than a 2 minute drive.
So every day the hayride came around in the morning, again mid afternoon (I think) and then late afternoon. The rule for late afternoon is it was the "water ride." It rounded the corner right in front of our spot everyday. We often talked to the driver and he was quite the hoot. Well come to find out, on this day the regular driver had some help... a new guy. The also have a firetruck ride (which we did as well.. we do not miss an activity like that!!) Well he let the new guy pick, fire truck or last-of-the-day hayride. You see what was missing there? He "forgot" to tell him it was a water hayride.. Yep.
He also made sure to tell the mischievous people at the last spot around the corner. They began the planning, the setting a spot and the setting up of materials.
The little guys set the spot..
We decided to head to the kids aquarium. It is really cool because it is very hands on and all at a kids level.Chaz was immediately turned off because it had the smell of an aquarium...you all know that smell and my child has his mother's sense of smell, not a good combo. Luckily it subsided so we could continue with our day. It was really touch and go there for a bit. Drama King.
Brothers checking out the albino crocodile. He is behind glass.. don't worry
I didn't really want to pet them. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with stingrays, long story. HOWEVER, I was telling my boy to do it so I figured I needed to lead by example. I didn't win out, he never touched one. Maybe one day.
He was almost dry ..
