Gaylord Staycation

We went to the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Paradise Springs waterpark Thursday July 28.  We had a great time.  We stopped at The Grapevine Mills Mall before check in and rode the little train they have around the mall.  We also visited the Rainforest Cafe.  However the wait for a table was an hour and we were ready to get to the waterpark. So we just looked at the alligator and everything else there is to see. We checked into our room about 3:30 and headed down to the Paradise Springs waterpark.  It was so Hot!  The water felt good.  Ashley, Mike, and Madden met us there and we played in the water a little bit with them.  Swimming makes you hungry, so it was time for food.  We got dinner and enjoyed a picnic style dinner in their hotel room.  After dinner we walked around the hotel and Aaron, Kaitlyn, and Camden went for a swim in the pool, didn't close till midnight.  I took Landry up to the room to get in bed.  The next morning we got up and ate some chicken minis, YUM!  We checked out of the hotel and went down to the water park....we were able to use the park all day.  We stayed until about 3:00 and then headed home with some fun and wonderful memories.  We are already planning to come back soon!

 Camden LOVED the "alligator" elevator!

 Checking out the view....we had a view of the pool.
