One day we went over to ride go-karts. Here is Cheri's husband (Jerry) holding Ross while we figured out what we were doing.
Reid wanted to ride the go-kart with Uncle Jerry. (I guess mom isn't cool enough). Luckily Ryan picked mom to ride with him so we got a ride in and we got to race Grandma Cella. We had a lot of fun and Ryan seemed to really enjoy them.

This is when Scott and Jerry C were building a bonfire and Grandpa Jerry, Ross and I were just hanging out on the golf cart watching them.
Smores night. I don't know why Ryan doesn't look like he's having much fun but Courtney and I were! MMMMmmm... Smores! I found these campfire marshmallows at HyVee and they were so cool. One marshmallow was too big for a half size of the graham crackers. The kids loved roasting the marshmallows but really didn't want to eat them roasted so then we just threw them in the fire and watched them burn. They LOVE marshmallows plain but I'm not sure they have the full concept of how delicious a Smores is just yet.
Reid was very excited about fishing. Here he is just checking out the pole but Cheri and Jerry did take him fishing (thanks guys). Courtney and I just rode around on the golf cart while they fished and mom and Jerry watched. Russ and I just aren't really into fishing. That's something special that Reid can share with his aunt and uncle :)
My absolute favorite part of the campground is that it has an attached water park and it is the most fun ever! The lines are NEVER long so you could go down slides all day long. They have four big slides, one toilet bowl slide, one little black slide that is fast and fun, a lazy river, a wave pool, a basic swimming pool and a pretty neat kiddie area. We got two full day passes for four people for $60!! We spent a lot of time at the water park. The kids enjoyed the snacks at the snack bar on both days. Reid got a funnel cake both days and Ryan had an ice cream cone on the 2nd day which he generously shared with Caits (pictures below).
And one of Ryan swimming.
Ross enjoyed the water park a little bit on both days. He would come out for a couple of hours and then Russ would take him back to the cabin so he could get his nap in. He really likes the water and even went under a time or two.
Here is he hanging out watching the fun with Grandma Cella.
It's hard to explain or summarize how much fun the cabins are. It's slow-paced, low-key... but there is enough to do that you aren't bored. We played Monopoly Deal on our screened in porch one night with Aunt Courtney and one day when it was raining and had so much fun. Russ and I went out the next week and bought the card game for ourselves!
I can't believe we've already been back for two weeks - we had so much fun!!!
