Our Indoor Waterpark Mini-Vacation

This weekend we went to the indoor waterpark at the Double JJ Resort

We enjoyed the fun waterslides, warmth of the waterpark, spacious accommodations, and big breakfast buffet in the morning that was included in the price.

We only lost one child (Matthew) during our stay and only for about 5 minutes.  
Okay, those were the worst 5 minutes of my life and I am SO thankful that the Lord let us find him quickly!

I must say that this waterpark isn't quite as nice as Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City, MI.  (There are some pictures from our GWL stay at the end of this post.)

Do you remember in The Little Mermaid when Ursula puts on her lipstick?  (click on link to see a short video of what I'm talking about :) ).  

This waterpark needs some Ursula lipstick.  Everything needs to be repainted and brightened up.

The other thing that I didn't like as well about this overnight stay, is that the hotel is really far from the waterpark.  You even have to walk outside (under a tented covering) for a bit.  When it's winter and you're wearing a bathing suit and sandals...that makes for a CHILLY walk/run.  
At GWL, everything is in one building which makes it super convenient and warm.

The room we stayed in, Billy the Kid Thoroughbred Suite, was very nice, even nicer than the room we stayed in at Great Wolf Lodge.  It was much bigger with a living room, a kitchen, and a separate master bedroom with its own TV and whirlpool tub (unfortunately only Matthew took advantage of this!)

The only bad thing about the room itself was that we could hear the neighbors very well.  They had a party into the evening with screaming kids and loud adults.  We could hear it all...even the middle of the night...well, I won't go there.  Let's just say that I could hear EVERYTHING.  

Awkward moment.

  If we had to do it over again, we'd probably bring our snow stuff as there are a bunch of outdoor activities you can do as well as spending time at the waterpark. 

  Even though we probably won't ever go back, overall we had a nice stay with lots of fun family time eating ice cream, staying up way too late watching America's Funniest Home Videos, and of course, getting really wet.
