Earlier this week, we enjoyed some family fun time in Lapeer. I had never even heard of Lapeer before a few weeks ago, but John had a week of training there for the AP course that he will be teaching this Fall. We didn't want to be without him all week, so we packed all four of us up, and headed east to Lapeer on Monday afternoon.
John's training was all day long, from 7:30-4:30, Tuesday through Friday. We drove around and found a handful of parks that the kids and I were planning to hit on a fun "park day", but the rainy weather kept us stuck in the hotel for much of Tuesday. I came home with the kids on Wednesday morning (we'd had enough Lapeer fun at that point), and John stayed until Friday.
The kids thought the trip was SO much fun, thanks mostly to the hotel swimming pool! We spent lots of time there with John, and also some time during the day when he was gone.
Why is it that I can never get a picture to turn out by an indoor swimming pool???? I'm posting them anyway for the memories!
This was taken right away on the first night. It did not take long for the kids to get used to swimming again! Trey loves the water, and even though we were worried that she wouldn't, Rowan loved it too!
Last summer, Rowan wanted nothing to do with swimming pools, but she had so much fun in this pool and hot tub!
Trey would jump in, swim to the ladder, climb out.....over and over and over again!
Of course Rowan had to do it too!
Sweet little swimmer! He did try taking his swimmies off once (feeling brave), but wanted them put back on right away! Maybe after swimming lessons in a few weeks!
Ready to climb back in!
Since it was rainy on Tuesday, the kids and I spent some time driving around and exploring the town. We discovered downtown, and found this cute little candy and ice cream shop that we brought John to later that night.
I just had to post this because this is the face we see so often on our little princess! Not wanting her picture taken!
Enjoying "rainbow" ice cream!
Rowan wanted the same kind because it had yellow in it!
A few more pool pics from be fore we left Wednesday morning...
Swimming all by herself! She was so funny -- she would go down the steps in the shallow end, swim to the ladder in the deep in, climb up, and do it over and over again!
Trey joined her, and they giggled SO much!
One last jump before we go!
It was fun to get away for a couple of days, even if it was in a Best Western in Lapeer. :)
One more FUN vacay to go, and then lots of family time at home for the rest of the summer!
