My overall impression: we are not yuppy enough for the resort. It was nice, the room was very clean, beds were comfortable, I wish I could've brought the whole bathroom home with me, and there was a fridge in the room. Anything that cost extra money cost A LOT of extra money though. More than we were willing to spend, so we stuck to free activities. We did not eat in any of the restaurants because they were way out of our price range with 5 people to feed.
We did have a fun weekend sticking to the included activities though. Mainly, the kids wanted to spend all their time at the pool. There is a lazy river, a water slide, a couple of pools, a large baby pool and a splash pad. No pictures from there because I wasn't taking a camera out to the pool to get ruined. One great thing about the pool is it opened early. So when our early risers were dressed in swimsuits at 8am, we could actually take them for a swim.
When we weren't at the pool, there was still a lot of resort to explore. Inside, they had an activities room set up. This gave the kids a chance to play while still taking a break from the sun. Secora liked the giant legos:
Outside, there is a butterfly garden and a hummingbird garden. We ended up exploring these in the heat of the day, so I didn't catch anything but plants with the camera. There were tons of butterflies around the resort though, we kept commenting on how many butterflies and bumble bees there were (happy bumble bees, with tons of their favorite flowers around, they weren't bothering anybody)
In the pasture, there are longhorns and llamas to visit with
There are also a couple of horses on the property. We happened to be around on shoeing day, so the girls got to watch that and the guy was really good about explaining why it's all done the way it is.
One of the highlights was on our way out of town, when we stopped to explore The Dinosaur Park. More on that tomorrow!
