Pools, Waterparks and Family Fun

Our vacation is going so well and I’m having a great time with my family.  We are relaxing, making new memories and my girls are having a blast with all of the activities that we have been doing.  When I was a child I made memories here with my family and I’m so glad that my children are getting to make memories here as well.

Today we decided to go to the water park since I got a great deal on tickets on Groupon.  My thrill-seeking youngest absolutely loved to ride all of the waterslides with me while my oldest, who is more cautious, rode the smaller slides and enjoyed her time in the lazy river.

Before we left on vacation I ordered a waterproof pouch for my iPhone 7 Plus so I would be able to take photos of the girls while we were in the water and surprisingly, the pouch worked perfectly.  I was able to wear the pouch around my neck so it was secure and it worked amazingly to keep my phone dry but still allow me to take photos of my girls while we rode along the lazy river.  I probably could have taken it on the slides with me so I could record our time on the slides, but I was too nervous that the phone would get thrown around.  (Some of those slides are insane!)

Yesterday we went to Cape May, somewhere we always visited when we were on vacation when I was a child.  I always loved to visit Diamond Beach and used to bring home a full bucket of beautiful stones from the beach.  When I was a kid, the beach used to be full of stones from half way down to the water.  Unfortunately, now the stones are only at the water’s edge, but my girls still had a wonderful time collecting the stones just like I used to do as a child.  I loved that they enjoyed it just as much as I did when I was their ages.

We also had a great day at the beach too.  The girls love the ocean and never want to leave, so we rented some body boards and went to the beach.  I wish I had tried my water proof case when we went to the beach because those would have been some great pictures.

We have one more day here and we can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.  It’s going to be hard to leave because we had such a great time, but every good thing must eventually come to an end.  We still have some great day trips planned for this summer, so we will still have loads of fun.
