Day 1086 -- Water Park

Tonight we are staying in the Golden Eagles Suite at the Soaring Eagle Waterpark and Hotel in Mount Pleasant. We owe this amazing experience entirely to my Grandpa and Grandma Stuart and Colby's Grandpa and Grandma Back.  You see, just recently, both of them sent us a check for on the same day and asked us to use it for our family at Christmas.

Colby and I had been talking about making another trip to an indoor water park, but we were quickly outgrowing Surfari Joes, which had been our destination the last two year.

We are so incredibly grateful for the fun and excitement we have had since we got here this afternoon.  The kids swam, slid, and climbed like maniacs in the expansive water park.  Tonight, we are resting in comfort in a ridiculously nice suite.

Breslin summed it up best when he looked from the waterpark to me and said in a hushed voice, "Mom, this is the best Christmas break ever."

It's true.

I am thankful for our grandparents, whose generosity made this night of memories and fun possible.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.  I wish you could have seen the looks on their faces tonight.  That was all because of you.
Thank God for the water park!

Lord, thank you for the incredible, generous people who made tonight possible.  Thank you for all of the fun we had together as a family.  In your name I pray, Amen.
