Big Sky Waterslide

We day tripped to Kalispell yesterday.  It was really a great day.  Amber had invited us to go to the water slides with them and the cousins had a lot of fun playing together.  I hardly saw Leah all day. We left just after 7 and were at the water park all day.  Arriving home just before 11 that night.  They kids loved Logan's Pass.  Leah had not gone with us last year, she was on the way to Idaho with Grandpa Smith. So she was really looking forward to seeing it.
This red slide was by far the highlight of the day.  You went whipping around a circle then down a ramp and shot up the other side then back down.  The water park is just big enough that we went all day and didn't get bored, but small enough that I never worried about the kids.  I just made sure I knew where they were once in a while.
Here is every on relaxing in the hot tub.

Leah was in the kids pool almost all day.  She did go on a few slides.  The kids pool was only about 6 inches deep and she was really scrapped up at the end of the day.  I was really surprised since usually she is one of the first to go on slides.  Later when I asked why she stayed there all day she said because Emry wanted to. I thought that was nice of her to give up what she wanted to do for her cousin.  She seems to do that a lot.  Leah is always saying I was just trying to be a good cousin.  I keep telling her that it is still OK to do what she wants to sometimes too.
We packed a lunch and took it in with us.  I had snacks and water for the way down also.  Then on the way home we stopped at a little cafe and had yummy burger.  Leah and I had a BLT.

Logan's Pass really scares me to drive over but at the same time I love it.  It is so incredibly beautiful.  Also you have to drive slow and we roll down the windows.  Because of this even though it is windy nobody gets car sick.  I don't even worry it is a very relaxing drive.  I would never drive it myself but trust Dave completely and know I am in superb hands.
It was a long day, but well worth it.  It was nice to spend some time with Dave as we haven't seen him much the last couple of month.  The kids especially enjoyed this time with their dad.


  1. Sounds like a fun time! Wish we could have joined you.

  2. Fun! I haven't been to Big Sky since I was a kid. Guess we should take the kids next summer.
