“Life Slows Down a Little Bit at Splashway” – Mommy Approved
Several weeks ago, my parents came into town for my birthday and post-celebrations, we took a little road-trip to what is now our new favorite waterpark. Splashway exceeded all of our expectations and we’re already talking about next year’s trip! Even from our neck of the woods north of Houston, the drive was under 2 hours and totally worth it. Bear had the time of his life and my parents and I couldn’t believe how brave he was- he wanted to do every single water slide (even some that he wasn’t quite tall enough for yet). Boone hung out in the shade of our private cabana living his best life, too.
The thing about Splashway is, it’s not just a waterpark. While it’s a world class one at that, it’s so much more. The entire experience is one that kids and parents alike can relish in and soak up summer in it’s purest form by means of camping in the cozy cabins, roasting marshmallows around a fire, watching a movie on the big grassy lawn by night, and playing putt-putt by day. Life slows down a little bit at Splashway- if you go, you’ll see exactly what I mean. After a few hours at the waterpark the first day we were there, we checked into our cabins and instantly fell in love.
Bear was so pumped about having his own loft to sleep in and we felt we were really camping, while still having a large kitchen, living area, screened in porch, etc. “Glamping”, really (which I was totally good with). We decided to cook hot dogs on the fire followed by s’mores, then my parents watched Boone while Bear and I walked over to watch Coco on the lawn with our friends. On the walk over, Bear looked up at the sky and said, “Mommy- you can actually see the stars!”. This was a big moment for our little city boy. He pointed out the big dipper and I’m pretty sure it was his first time seeing it, which made his trip…and mine, too.
