We took a 'staycation' a couple weekends ago. We used one of those Living Social deals (my sis-in-law gave us the heads up-thanks Shay!) and headed to a resort called the Arizona Grand. It is a very nice hotel with a large water park.
We spent about 2 hours at the water park and after 5 times around the lazy river we realized our kids are a little young to really enjoy a water park. However, they loved the lazy river since it was right up their alley. Later we had pizza, watched a movie, the older girls and I went swimming at the pool near our room, then we headed to bed.
The next morning we ate a great breakfast (including an omelet bar where David took copious notes as always). Afterward David took the older girls swimming while Anna napped then we headed out. It was a quick trip but also so much fun. We definitely want to make this a tradition every summer.
