As usual, we start our vacation the night before we leave by relaxing and just hanging out together. We did that out back this year since the weather was perfect.
What's this Harry Potter all about anyway?
Next day we arrived at our hotel. My husband gets many many many reward points for all the travel he does so we stayed at an awesome hotel. It had it's own water park with a lazy river and 3 water slides as well as a large pool, a splash pool for little ones, and an adult only pool (which I realized I will probably be dead by the time I am able to use that one again!). It was fantastic and we could have spent the entire week just hanging out at the hotel. They had activities for the kids, an arcade, and a Starbucks for mommy.
