Indoor waterpark

Today Lucas actually woke up at 7:30 and he probably would have slept longer if I had been fast enough to turn off the green light. His eyes fluttered open a bit and he saw the green. I did get him to lay down and watch cars until about 8:15. 

So we actually had a lazy morning. We had eggs, bacon, sausage, English muffins, and fruit. Khris has been awesome cooking everything. 

After breakfast Lucas played with the other kids and we were able to hang out a bit, talking. Then we got ready to go to the H2Oooohh! Indoor Waterpark at Split Rock Resort. We went with Judy, Alice, Matt, Emily and Lily. Later Shane, Natalie, and Madelyn came also. 

I had reserved the tickets in advance and it was going to be $118 for 2 adults and 1 kid, but when I got there the cashier told me the big water slides were not running until 2 so we only paid $58! That didn’t matter to us anyway because Lucas was too small. We had a lot of fun in the wave pool. There were 2 smaller slides that we all did except Lucas was scared. Then there was an area that dumped water buckets on you and Lucas liked that. But overall we did the wave pool. 

Emily got Judy and I to do the obstacle course which was pulling yourself on a rope across floaties. We succeeded! 

Judy, Don, and I also did the boogie board simulator thing. It was crazy! 

We got some food around 1. Lucas seemed so tired. He said he wanted to go back to the house after he ate but then he was back out in the wave pool haha. 

We left around 2:30. Lucas napped until around 4:30 at the house. Then we enjoyed a delicious lasagna dinner made by Jess, Emily, and Lily. Khris made some awesome garlic bread and a salad. Lucas ate so good! Then we did a cake and sang happy birthday. 

After dinner we played a bags game against Khris and Jess. Don and I were losing so bad, like 8-16 at one point. But we came back blazing and we ended up winning 21-18! 

Then the kids gathered some sticks to make a fire on top of a charcoal grill for smores. Bonfires are not allowed at this property so that is kind of a bummer but we made it work. 

It was getting dark and I wanted to get Lucas asleep so I told him we could get in the hot tub for a bit and then do bath. He loves the hot tub. He’s had a lot of late nights. Here we are 10 pm and Lucas is still up.  

After Lucas fell asleep we played the game Chameleon. It was fun! Tomorrow we have to get up early and head out before 9 am for our flight out of Newark.  

lake harmony beach day

Lucas was up at 6:40 but we got him to stay in his bed until about 8. When we got up Lucas asked Khris to make eggs. Then he wanted more eggs! 

We hung around the house for a couple hours then we got ready for the beach. The beach is a private beach for Lake Harmony Estate. It was pretty nice. The kids enjoyed it. It was a bit cold but we got used to it. Lucas swam a lot then he played in the sand. 

Then he saw khris going swimming so he went over and got to fish for the first time. We caught nothing.  

We stayed at the beach until about 1:45. Then we came home and made some lunch. Lucas got a nap in. 

While he was napping I played bags/cornhole with Khris, Steve, and Jess. When Lucas woke up he watched Super Mario Brothers. 

I knew Lucas wanted to try the hot tub so we got our swimming suits on and did that. He loved it. Then Emily, Lily, Matt, Madelyn, and Natalie joined us. Lucas did not want to be out and pretty much had to be bribed with chocolate. 

Then people started playing games. I was working on cleaning some sweet corn so Khris could cook it. Lucas helped me for a bit. Don tried to play dnd but Lucas was throwing a fit that he needed him. It was already 7 pm so I made Lucas some dinner. Then the 3 of us got in the hot tub again. Lucas mentioned if I could save him a piece of corn for tomorrow. 

I got him to take a bath and told him to go say goodnight. The corn was almost done so I told Lucas be could have some. He had one and a half. He loves it! Then he was running around and basically didn’t fall asleep until 10 pm again. 

After Lucas was asleep we played the boomer meme game. Judy also gave Don a gift of 2 bottles of wine that both had 42 in their name and a towel which is from the book Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.  

Heading to the poconos

Lucas woke up again today at 7:30 on the dot. He coughed a little last night and puked up a little. I really hope this is it for that. We went to our hotel breakfast then we packed up. 

We went over to Don’s mom’s and hung out. Lucas watched a bunch of transformers stuff. We had lunch then we got in the car to make our way to the Poconos house.  

Lucas took a nap in the car so that was good. We stopped in Mt Pocono to pick up groceries at Walmart. Khris and I had been working on a list. Then we ordered 7 pizzas from Dominic’s Pizza and they were done super quick! 

Once we got to the house Steve and Don went to pick up the pizzas. I worked on unloading the car. Lucas had fun playing with Emily and Lily. Then we all ate some pizza and salad. After dinner we talked then we got out a game of bags and played on the balcony. It was fun Lucas even played. Then we just hung out. 

The house and area look pretty awesome. I can’t wait to explore tomorrow. Lucas has had a lot of late nights, it’s 10:30 and he’s still awake!
