Grand Rios

We are in the middle of MEA weekend. This means the kids have Thursday and Friday off and the teachers go to in-service meetings. I loved this weekend growing up! We decided it would be fun to take the kids to Grand Rios. This is a hotel that has a fun indoor water park and it is not far away.
We really loved the lazy river, the water slides and of course the hot tub. It was wonderful to get away for a short time. I even went down some tube slides (which now I thinking was not a great idea-ouch)!
At night, we got some pizza, bread sticks and pop. Of course we brought chips and candy too. We played Mastermind about a million times. I loved spending time together with no distractions.

Unfortunately, I really hurt my back right before we were scheduled to leave. I decided to go any way. I thought the hot tub would feel good. I hobbled around and had fun with the kids.
We had to cut our Friday water fun short because of my back. I went to the chiropractor because my back was getting worse instead of better. He let me know the hot tub was bad for the back. Who knew? He also let me know I would be in pain for a while. How lucky am I?

This was a wonderful trip-back and all! Next week, they have Friday off. After that, they have Thursday and Friday off again. October school schedule is weird!

Super fun! Sorry about your back. I would have thought the hot tub would be good for it, too. Go figure.

Well, I think you have the luckiest kids in the world. Could those smiles be any wider?
