Playing catch up...long weekend

Chad rented a suite at the Pointe South Mountain Resort over the weekend. This was the view from his balcony...so pretty! This resort has it's own water park so we took the little boys over to play.


Cole spent most of the day on the water slides. These are way too high for my liking, but he thought they were a blast. He wore a shirt all day and sunblock. Cody didn't...Cody was fried...still is!
This is more my speed Cody getting an autographed poster from the Phoenix cardinal cheerleaders. Such a boy!Cody, Chad, Sandy and Cole in the wave pool.
They had a band there which offered a small amount of shade and good entertainment for me and Mark who were walking around in our street clothes. It was HOT...really hot!


We went to Ted's hot hogs for lunch because it was cheaper than eating at the resort. We always tease Sandy because she always orders big meals but NEVER eats them. She ordered a foot long and we told her there was no way she could eat the whole thing. She had to prove us wrong and she did indeed eat the whole thing. I'm sure she was sick to her stomach, but she did it. :o)Kyle was at his new job training. He got a new job at Fry's grocery store. His trainers were more than happy to let us take pictures of him working. They really liked him. After he was done with work, we bought him a swimsuit and dropped him off at the resort with the rest of them. They played at the water park until it closed, then went back to the room and watched a movie until we picked them up.
While they were playing Mark and I went and took pictures of our friend Nick with his boys (and dog, Shakes). His boys are now grown and beginning to move their separate ways with college and marriage, so he really wanted some pictures of them. I took a bunch, but I'll just share this one. Cute group of guys!

There was lots more that happened this weekend like church, meals, cleaning, yard work, got some squash out of my in laws garden, shopping, napping, motorcycle ride to the mountains, visit to the cemetery, floating down the river, etc. but I don't want to bore you all with a novel. I hope you all enjoyed your long holiday weekend. We sure did! :o)

Wow! Sounds like you guys had a wonderful weekend! That sure was nice of Chad to rent the suite.

You guys looked like you had a blast...I am amazed anyone steps foot in the outside in Phoenix at all during the summer...you're brave. Of course, the water helps doesn't it?

The Lazy River is my absolute favorite!! Sooooo relaxing!
Okay, I posted the picture of her invitation (after quite a few mishaps with the address not being deleted prior to posting, then seen through the cover up etc. A complete comedy of errors!!!) It is a bit on the simple side, but I had very limited time to create the idea and mass produce! That's what I get for procrastinating!

Ahhh, Summertime in Arizona. I don't miss it. But, you all look like you were having a blast. The heat never bothered me when I lived there, of coarse Globe is a little cooler, but now that I am older, no thank you. BUT, I can't wait till we get there.YAHOO!

What a great mom you are taking your kids to all of these fun places! And how great of Chad to get that resort for the weekend so his entire family could enjoy the water park! He's one smart thinker. Looks like you guys had GREAT FUN this weekend. We did too. Hey, I want to switch couches with you! You have moose and bear on your couch?!? Man! You got the cooler couches!!! IF I had seen THOSE I would have gotten THEM instead. Have a great week! Love! Wendy

I didn't get past that slide! That reminded me of when I was visiting my sister in Utah and I went down a slide like that with my neice. HOLY COW! My legs flew up, my arms flew out and I SCREAMED......then I panicked remembering that I needed to cross my legs and arms. My sister will still laugh hysterically when we talk about it. LOL

TK Angels said...

Love your pics. How fun!! Sorry, I missed the blog that Chad received the package. I also loved the coin. Makes me proud that he carries it :)

Take care,
Love,
Terri

HOLY COW!! Those are some humongous water slides!! Looks like a lot of fun for you guys!! I love the lazy river too, but I *think* I'd still try those tall water slides. I might chicken out once I got to the top of them, though. LOL

Cheryl Wray said...
