Skiing and a Water Park

Payton had a couple of days off from school so Kathleen planned us a skiing trip in the Poconos. We traveled to the Jack Frost/Big Boulder ski area. It was an easy 2 hour drive. We got there with plenty of time for Kathleen and Payton to ski a few hours in the late afternoon. Big Boulder has nighttime skiing. Parker and I just hung around the hotel room. Payton did great skiing. He hadn't forgotten his Swiss ski lessons. After an afternoon of skiing we all settled into our room to rest.
Friday started with more skiing. This time at Jack Frost and Parker and I went along. We hung out in the lodge while Kathleen and Payton skied. We picked a good time to go skiing. Parker drank half of his drink and climbed up on my lap and went to sleep. I sipped a beer and read an ebook on my phone. Payton gained more confidence with his skiing. He is curving left and right down the slopes. He sometimes gets his skis parallel, but mostly he still snow plows down the hill. He mastered using a chair lift. He never used one in Switzerland. After a few hours a skiing we headed back to the hotel for the water park.
Our hotel wasn't the greatest, but its indoor water park was. It was smaller than that of Great Wolf Lodge, but it wasn't crowded and had as much or more things to do. The Komodo Dragon was fun. They call it a flow riding ride. I call it a boogie board thing. It was fun. Payton and Parker loved the place. Kathleen planned us a good trip. We played in the water for 4 or 5 hours. We had planned staying two nights, but after swimming we packed up and headed home. We were home by ten.
