For a special activity on Alexa's birthday, we took her and her cousins, Foster and Loghen, to CoCo Keys Water Park in Omaha.
We took Alexa last year on her birthday and she had been asking to go back to the "far away inside pool" again when she turned four. I got a deal on-line so we decided to make an afternoon of it.
I think the kids all had a great time. Paul and I did too...that is until I went down the big, enclosed, windy water slides two times in a row. I felt lightheaded and thought for sure I was going to lose my cookies. I'm such a wimp now that I'm OLD and wish I didn't get motion sickness so easily. I decided at that point to take it easy and spent the next 20 minutes or so in the "spa" while watching Foster and Loghen go down the slides time and again.
Alexa loves the water and loves the pool. She could spend all day jumping into the pool, swimming back to the edge, climbing out, and doing it all over again. Just watching her do this over and over wears me out!
I'm pretty sure this is going to be a regular birthday tradition as Alexa has already asked to go back when she turns five...and when she turns eleven.
I'm so grateful Alexa has such wonderful cousins that she gets to spend time with. She talks about them all the time and loves them to pieces!
