We started the week well, with mini golf in the good company of friends from NY, who were in the area on vacation but then disaster struck. Exile #4 came down with the lurgee and E5N1 wasn't quite right. It looked like our final week of vacation was going to be a bit of an anticlimax...
However, it picked up again. All being fully recovered, we were able to enjoy a much anticipated visit from one of Exile #4's best friends and family. Exile #4 was delighted to see her friend, E5N1 was delighted to see her sister, who was his classmate for a couple of years and we were delighted to see their parents and pass the time pleasantly at the beach and the brewpub.
Today we were also able to reschedule a get together at the local water park with one of E5N1's old classmates and family that we had had to cancel earlier in the week. This was a two birds with one stone event for me as the kids had been longing to go to the park all summer and I had been dragging my feet over attempting it solo. Much fun was had by all and although I will leave the details to Exile #1, I will just say that my favorite moment of the day was hearing the unmistakable scream of my eldest daughter from right across the park, knowing that that could only mean one thing - that ride everyone saw when we pulled in to the parking lot...oh, yes she did!
Tiny picture of that ride from their website.
So, now there is just one day left of vacation. Time to check backpacks, load up with supplies, find those lunch bags and then maybe have one last day of fun!
