Kalahari!

Yes, it really did take me 3 days to get around to the post. But oh we had such a good time! Our room was awesome! We had 2 bedrooms, one for my sister and her gf - that room had it's own bathroom with a jacuzzi tub! We never did get to use the jacuzzi tub - one night just isn't enough - but it was very cool just having it. The other room had 2 double beds for the boys and me.

Here is Jaben laying on one of the beds in our room...

And a not-so-great shot of Kyan sitting at the table in our living/dining room...

The first night we went swimming and rode the waterslides, of course! That was great! Kyan really loved the lazy river, and we all loved the hot tub. That one starts inside, but you can swim thru to go outside. That was really neat - I've never been in an outdoor hot tub before. Sad, I know, but it was very cool. Later, Jaben had his free waverider lesson. He did very well!

Here is his instructor showing off his skills before the lesson...

This is Jaben, boogie boarding. He had a hard time getting up to his knees, never quite made it to his feet unassisted, so he worked on boogie boarding tricks...

I wanted to upload the short, about 14 second video of Jaben on the wave rider, but it doesn't want to work for me today. So, if you want to see it, please clink Jaben on the wave rider

The next morning, while we were waiting (forever) for our overpriced breakfast, I took Kyan out of the restaurant to walk around since he's impatient, and we ran into a new friend. I ran back and grabbed Jaben and the camera. Kyan LOVED this guy so much we brought home a much smaller, stuffed version...

After more time at the waterpark...

and some video games for Jaben (sorry, I wasn't photographing such a common occurance!) we went to the indoor play area, where Kyan had a blast!

We brought home a t-shirt for Jaben, a small ew-funt (elephant) for Kyan, and candy for each. Of course these pictures don't document everything, but how many pictures of my kids do you really want to see?

Oh! You want more?? Well.......................

Just kidding! I'll save other pics of my oh-too-cute kids for another post. If you ever get a chance to get to Kalahari Resort, we all highly recommend it. However, if you can afford more than one night, we also recommend you do 2. There's just not enough time to do and see everything.

Looks like an awesome vacation! Good on you!

Ok, Interview questions:

1. Who was your very first teen idol crush?

2. What is your biggest regret?

3. Your greatest hope?

4. If you could do one totally selfish thing, with no consequences, what would it be?

5. Who would win in a fight, Betty or Wilma?
