    Our Summer At Splashway With Friends

    This post was in partnership with Splashway. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

     

    Hi friends!

    Hope you are doing well! Today I’m sharing a quick review and recap of our stay at Splashway this summer. A couple weeks ago we had the privilege to stay at Splashway with our mom friends and their kiddos for a fun summer vacation. It was honestly one of the most memorable mommy and me trip  with my little guy. From our cute cabins, to roasting marshmallows by the fire, to enjoying all the fun rides at the waterpark, nothing says family summer vacation like Splashway. Plus we even got to bring our dog too! I hate having to leave our dog when we go on trips so knowing that Splashway is pet friendly made it even more enjoyable. Rotel (our dog) was spoiled by all the kids and loved being center of attention. Check out more of our stay at Splashway, where we stayed, what we did below!

    5 Things My Mom Was Always Right About

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    When I look back at my teenage years, I can honestly say I was a little prick growing up. I know it wasn’t easy raising a stubborn daughter like me who never listened, and thought I was smarter than my parents. I always thought my parents were to strict and too old fashioned, and growing up I vowed, I never would be like my mom. But then your mom’s famous last words of “one day you will know what it’s like to be a mom and one day you will know I am right” came true. I became a mom, and just like that I realized I knew nothing, just like John Snow in Games of Thrones. I realized all those years of me arguing and second guessing my mom, she was right all along. So this Mother’s Day I am dedicating this post to my mom. A tribute to all the things my mom was right about that I finally realized now that I am a mom.
