Playing hookie on the weekend

Last weekend I decided to take the oldest out of school and play hookie. Well, sort of. Lineman couldn't get home so we decided to go meet him up at my Mom's near Billings. I pulled our oldest son out of school on Thursday. He missed his Valentines Day party at school on Friday and then Monday was a holiday so that helped.

One day we took the kids along with Gramma's neighbor kids up to Billings to The Reef, an indoor water park. My Mom brought her camera and took these pics for us.

The two neighbor girls and my oldest ready to go across the ropes and lily pads.

Hollllllldddddd Onnnnnnnnn

I was sitting in the wave pool here with Little Man on my lap. He loves the water and so does the middle boy.

There is a GINORMOUS bucket that fills with water and then dumps it all out. Too fun.

I think they were going up to one of the slides here with a double inner tube.
Just playing some more.
Driving home with all the kids...... Quack quack quack.... what else can I say?


Monkey see.... Monkey do!

It looks like you all had a lot of fun! Last summer we went to an indoor water park very similar to that on vacation and we all loved it! I also love the duck faces!! haha

Too funny...I love the ducks! For once in my life, I want to be crammed in between all those youngin's and having fun with ya'll! I want to go swimming too! I have been trying to comment to your blog since the 52 weeks contest but my password would not work so I could not log on. Anyway, I am going to try to do the 52 weeks challenge. Tomorrow, right? I'll try.

Great pictures!

Looks like a lot of fun. I wish we had something like that around here. Of course that would mean I'd have to wear a swimsuit and Yikes all the kids would be scared!

Me again...Carin, I am having trouble moving the 52 weeks to my blog under wordpress. Any ideas?

There are some things in life worth playing hookie for...and by your pictures, I would say your weekend qualified. Looked like a great time!

Looks like a great time. We have a water park about 145 miles from here that is a blast.

I think playing hooky from school once in a while is the best thing for kids!
