Day Tripping

We day tripped to the Water park near Kalispell on Saturday. This trip was planned months ago and the kids were really looking forward to it.  The last week they could barely contain themselves.  It was a very long day but so much fun.  We caravaned down with Dave's family. Amber had to work:( and was the only one unable to make it.  The Atwoods got their passports just in time, so that worked out great.  Nicole had known were were going and had given us buy one get one free coupons to the water park.  In order to get this deal you needed to buy the value pass.  This included bumper cars, rock wall, and mini golf.  It still ended up being cheaper per person and it was great.  We would not have spent the extra money if not for the coupon and the kids had a blast doing it all.  Logan's Pass was beautiful as always.  I love that drive.  It is the only place I don't worry about Cora, Blake and I getting car sick.  Even though it is windy, you have to go slow and we usually travel with windows down to see. Leah and Blake had picked a cousin buddy that they love hanging out with and stayed together all day.  I didn't have to worry about them.  Poor Cora!  She had invited a friend but she was not able to come.  So Dave and I were her buddy most of the day.  We picked a nice spot on the grass and had lunch.  Then back to riding the slides. Jared did a great job chasing his boys around all day.  What a good dad.  I am sure he was exhausted and so glad when they fell asleep.  After the water park we all went for a quick bite before heading home.  Blake fell asleep about 8.  Missed the ride home and didn't wake up until 8 the next morning.  12 hours of sleep.  WOW.  It was a wonderful family get together.


  1. It was a great day! Our boys were too excited to sleep until about 11:30 p.m., but then slept in Sunday morning until 10:30 a.m. Thanks for the extra coupon - Bowen loved going on the bumper cars!

  2. I was a really fun day. We had a blast. Our boys were beat and they slept till 10:30 the next day too. Thankgoodness for 1:00 church. Looking forward to next year already. My only complaint is that I barely saw you and Dave. Next time we need to maybe have the girls have a few slides together :)
