Kalahari Weekend

This past weekend, Alexis, Dean and I spent part of the weekend at Kalahari which is a ginormous indoor water park. It really is overwhelming how large this place is. This was our first experience with something like this before and we really did enjoy ourselves. We met up with some friends to spend the day with as well which made it even that more fun. There were about 10-12 huge water slides, mostly for bigger kids. They did have a smaller "kiddie pool" that was a little more Alexis's speed. She was able to work up the courage to try the wave pool.....that was until Dean couldn't catch her from slipping through the inner tube and completely sinking under water. That seemed to completely terrify her for the rest of the time at the park. Needless to say we spent the rest of the time at the kiddie pool. Dean was able to go on several of the slides. I only tried my luck at the rather large 4 person raft slide. I figured I'd be better off watching from the sidelines. Needless to say, we had a great time. Unfortunately my photographer "Dean" was only able to get two whole pictures of the weekend so there's not much to show off what this place was really like. We'll try to do better the next time we go. Anyway, here are the two pictures we have.

Alexis tends to love the "baby" swings

This was the extent of the height of the slide for Alexis
