It is 12 frigid degrees outside, the ground is frozen solid and the drive is a sheet of ice. The forecast is calling for snow, and I am digging out bathing suits and flip flops. Not to go someplace warm. mind you, that would make too much sense!! No, we are going to Ohio. Right smack in the middle of the snow belt.
We are making our 2nd trip to the Unschooler's Winter Waterpark Getaway in Sandusky, Ohio. Last year, when we arrived, the waterfall in front of the resort was frozen! But inside, it is always warm. There are lots of different areas for kids and grown ups, including a water zip coaster! There is an indoor "sock" area if you want to be dry (but why?!) and an arcade. You can tap you inner artist and create a pottery piece in their studio, or make your own snuggle buggle in the "Build-A-Bear"-like animal center. There is a candy shop, a spa and a gym. The resort also has lots of fun activities planned each day like cookie decorating, candy bingo, coloring contests and spider stomping!
We are going with a large group of unschoolers from all over the country. The talented and generous event organizers have planned a carnival, a dance, a talent show, movie night and lots of other amazing opportunities for families to play. There will also be many informational funshops for kids and adults.
We are really looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting new. The lazy river and a margarita? What more could I want in February?!!!
