Get away without the kids

It finally happened!  You know where the hubby and I left on an overnight adventure without our kids.  We found a sitter to stay at our house with the kids and the dog, we sure are blessed to have people we can trust.  :) My husband and I have been married for 6.5 years but I think our honeymoon was the only time we have gone on an overnight adventure without our children, so it was much needed.  

We left Sunday morning at 10 am before all the snow and freezing rain made the roads terrible.   We had enough time to enjoy the water park, the amusement park, go shopping, and eat some yummy food.  

I will admit that going to the Kalahari resort without the kids was a bit strange since it is such a kid friendly place and I did start to miss my kids, but it is a good think to miss your kids so you can enjoy them even more when you get home.  

I may have missed my kids for a few minutes here and there but being able to enjoy adult activities instead of staying in the kiddie pool!  I loved just hanging out with my man and having fun doing crazy activities that we never typically get to do.  :) 

Some of my favorite things from the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells includes:  the outside hot tub, and the hot tub bar (the only bar connected to a hot tub in Wisconsin), laser tag- I was actually pretty good, mini golf I got a couple hole in ones which I think the hubby got a little jealous, and I really enjoyed my caramel apple.  

With Valentines Day approaching I hope you make some time for your spouse!  Do something out of the ordinary!  Go have fun with each other!!  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
