A PEACEFUL SUMMER GETAWAY TO SPLASHWAY...









This summer, our family was invited to spend the week at Splashway. I was nervous about bringing my children to the waterpark without Tommy so I invited my entire family to come help me. I had never been to Splashway before but have heard wonderful things. I have to start off by saying that this trip was so much more than I expected. It will forever be one of my favorite trips ever. Not only is Splashway a waterpark, they also have cabins, put put gold, laser tag, playground, campfires, movie nights on the lawn, lakes, golf carts, and more. 

The entire trip is truly so calming and everything you would want in a summer vacation. I went with several other families and our cabins were all next to each other. All of our children would go from cabin to cabin playing, snacking on each other's food, and having fun. There were 10+ children total so you can imagine how much fun they were having. We were there for 3 days and our schedule looked something like this... We would wake up and have breakfast in our cabins. There was a full kitchen so my mom made us breakfast. Then we would get ready for the waterpark, which was the perfect size for us. It wasn't too big with long long lines and it wasn't too small. We got around in golf carts which my entire family enjoyed. There were slides and activities for all ages. There were 2 little kiddie spots for Chloe too. We stayed in our cabana whenever we needed a break and I highly suggest reserving one because it's such a great space to order food, let the children rest, and to have all of your belongings in one area. The water slides were such a thriller, Liam LOVED the slides. He has been talking about "the purple slide" ever since then. Splashway has a huge variety of meals, snacks, and drinks that you can order from. They also let you bring in your own food which we appreciated. The waterpark is near our cabin so when Chloe needed a nap for we needed a break, we would get in our golf carts and drive back to our cabin for an hour or two. After the waterpark, we had several options, I let the kids play on the playground and ride around the golf cart. There's a huge lawn area and one night we had a little glow stick party and roasted smores. Splashway also has a new restaurant on site and the food is delicious comfort food. I had the fried fish and it tasted so good. 

My mom recently got married to her high school sweetheart after being being single for 10+ years. My stepdad is from Vietnam and came to the states last Christmas. Watching them on this trip made me feel so incredibly happy for them. My mom has always put her children first and never had time to do anything for herself. Watching my mom and dad play with their grandchildren in the wave pool and not having a single worry in the world made my heart cry. The entire trip was so relaxing and I'm thankful to have seen everyone spend time with each other and relax.  

While I was there I kept telling Tommy that this is his dream family vacation. Tommy enjoys trips where it's relaxing, consist of playing football or soccer in the grass, fishing by the lake, and really anything that is outdoors. Not only does Splashway have a fun waterpark, it has tons of other activities and the perfect spot for your family to bond and enjoy each other. Splashway is still open for a few more weekends.
