Weekend Getaway 1 - Frankenmuth, MI

On March 8th and 9th we took the boys up to the Bavarian Inn Hotel in Frankenmuth for a couple of nights to play and swim. We did this last year and it was a huge hit, so no surprise that there were no complaints this year.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon and the first thing Evan wanted to do is hit the arcade to play some ski-ball. Man, that kid is so good at that game; he scored 26,000 points in the first game and somehow managed to hit a jackpot of tickets. Ski-ball has always been one of my favorites, so I am glad he enjoys it as much as I do. We must have been down there for an hour or so and Evan wanted to play putt-putt. So, we decided to do that as well. It was his first time ever playing and although he did get frustrated a few times (I don't know where he gets that from - wink wink) he did really well. I didn't actually pay for Alex to play because he was more mesmerized by the lights on the trees that kept changing color, but Eric and I let him putt a few times and he loved it! I missed a hole in one three different times, but Eric managed to get one - which - those of you who know me know that didn't go over well.

We decided to order pizza for dinner at the cafe in the hotel and by this time Evan was ready to get in the pool. We suited up after dinner and off we went for two hours of fun in the pool. The boys had a BLAST!

Evan was hesitant on jumping in the pool but after some hard convincing Eric somehow got him to do it. Then, he wouldn't stop. He was having a ball jumping in and going underwater. He was so proud of himself and so were we!

Monday morning we had breakfast at a different restaurant in the hotel and hit the pools again for a few hours. It was really nice outside, so in the afternoon we went for a walk and then to dinner at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant. One last round at the arcade before picking prizes and heading home. The boys were exhausted but had a good time. Evan is already asking to go back so I better start looking and planning our next getaway because I think a year is a a bit too long for him to wait!

Here are some pictures of the fun we had.

Total Photo Bomb by Alex. I was trying to take a picture of Evan when Alex popped his head up!
