Breezy Park

A stormy day turned into a good day at the beach…… we were scheduled to have Victoria and Stephen overnight and then spend the day at Breezy park while Elena stayed and entertained the kids, but the weather forecast looked ominous so plans were held off. As Thursday arrived we decided to give it a go, defy the forecast and embark on a new adventure.
We arrived early and were able to get a picnic table next to the beach. Daniel (who doesn’t like swimming pools very much) was the first one in the water and stayed in all day. James ventured out to about “knee deep” but preferred to play in the sand. Rebecca has no fear at all. She kept walking out to deep water, didn’t mind getting her face wet when she tried to reach rocks under the water which were too far beneath the surface for her to reach. Elena and Jenya purchased tickets for the waterslide, Although Jenyas first try was his last. The slide was a bit too fast for him and he couldn’t manage to slow down. I explained how to adjust the speed and he may try it again (as well as Elena) the next time we go. James loved heading over to the water slides (without asking) so we had to keep running after him. One time Elena said she would chase him down and finally caught up to him at the entrance to the slides (where the line begins). Elena said she told James we needed to go back to our table and James started yelling “Help!!..... Help!!” and Elena said all the Staff were looking at her and wandering what was going on as she persuaded him to go with her. She came back to the table laughing and wondering if the police were going to arrive soon.
The day was fun for everyone. We had a blast digging tunnels, building castles and streams. Well, I guess speaking for myself, I know that I did. Jenya had chicken tenders with sweet and sour sauce for the first time and it became his latest new favorite.
Rebecca went the whole day without a nap and after some soft serve ice cream we headed home. Daniel, James and Rebecca were asleep within minutes of leaving the park.
