Beat Cabin Fever with a Trip to Castaway Bay {Sandusky, Ohio} Plus Giveaway

Today is the first day of spring and the weather forecast is looking promising for warmer temperatures.  I hate to wish spring away, but I just can’t wait for summer to get here to spend our days playing by the pool.  Luckily in Ohio we have some amazing indoor water parks available and two weeks ago we visited one of our favorites – Castaway Bay – in Sandusky, Ohio. That weekend getaway helped my girls to beat some of their winter boredom blues and also sparked their excitement for summer to get here quickly too. When entering the Castaway Bay … …..

Beat Cabin Fever with a Trip to Castaway Bay {Sandusky, Ohio}

The weather might be warming up, but in Ohio we are still a few months away from pool days.  However that hasn’t stopped us from swimming because a few weeks ago our family visited Castaway Bay in Sandusky, Ohio.  My girls and I always seem to get some cabin fever in the winter months and spending a few days at the water park is a sure fire way to cure it. We’ve made our annual trip up to Castaway Bay for the past four years and each year I have shared our experiences through blog posts.  Our first few years … …..

Visit Wildwater Kingdom for a SOAK-tacular Day {Aurora, Ohio}

Last summer I was pregnant with Lilah and didn’t want to do much of anything besides sit in air conditioning.  This summer it seems my kiddos and I are constantly on the go doing as many fun activities as possible.  We are truly trying to enjoy every warm and sunny day in Ohio as possible.  And so when we received an invitation to check out Wildwater Kingdom in Aurora, Ohio we jumped at the chance.  Since my hubby was scheduled to work that day I decided it would be fun to make it a girls day and invited two of … …..

Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark Resort–Paradise in the Middle of a Snow Storm {Sandusky, Ohio} {Plus Giveaway}

As I sit here typing away even more snow is falling from the sky and I’m dreading going to pick Alleigh up from school because that means I have to take the other three little ones out into the frigid cold.  Yet just a few weeks ago I was relaxing on a lounge chair at the side of a tide pool surrounded by palm trees in a perfectly comfortable 82° paradise.  And I want to go back so badly.  The good news is it’s very possible to visit again while the winter keeps dragging on because it’s not a very … …..

Comfort Inn Splash Harbor – Bellville, Ohio: Ohio’s Premier Water Park for Young Families {Review & Giveaway}

The worst thing about winter is being cooped up inside.  During the summer I constantly have the kids outside playing in the neighborhood, visiting local playgrounds, splashing in swimming pools.  It had gotten to the point that we were all in need of an escape from the confines of our home to splash about and have some fun.  I’m a huge fan of indoor water parks, but in most cases they are just too big and overwhelming for our family with three kiddos five and under.  However, there is one hotel within an hour or so drive from our home … …..

Escape the Frigid Temperatures at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay Where It’s Always 82 Degrees & Sunny! Plus a Giveaway!{Sandusky, Ohio}

I’m just putting this out there.  I hate winter.  Ohio is definitely the wrong state for me.  And this winter has been absolutely brutal so far.  It’s not so much the amount of snow that has fallen, but the frigid temperatures.  One day it was -13° and that wasn’t even including the wind chill.  I am so desperately yearning for sunshine and warmth outside, but right now that is months away.  I was so excited when our family was invited to spend the weekend at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay where it’s always 82° and sunny giving us a much needed … …..

A Splashing Good Time at Comfort Inn Splash Harbor! {Bellville, Ohio} Review & Giveaway

My girls absolutely love to go swimming, but at two and four years old massive indoor water parks just aren’t quite their speed.  And so I went in search of a hotel with a pool area that was more like a mini waterpark more suited towards families with younger kiddos.  I found just what I was looking for at the Comfort Inn Splash Harbor in Bellville, Ohio.  About two weeks ago Dustin, the girls, my sister, and I enjoyed an evening there. After checking in at the front desk we headed to our adjoining rooms.  The rooms were very clean … …..

Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park Review & Day Pass Giveaway {Sandusky, OH}

This past weekend our family had the pleasure of visiting Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park in Sandusky, Ohio.  It was a dreary, cold, and rainy day outside when we arrived, but inside the forecast was a constant 82 degrees – perfect pool weather.  The girls were super excited when we pulled into the parking lot and they saw the water slides coming out of the building.  Then when we walked into the tropical themed resort we came face to face with a huge pirate ship complete with talking parrots which the girls loved. After checking into our room … …..

Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park Resort

A couple weekends ago our family had the pleasure of attending a Castaway Bay Family Blogger Event.  Don’t know what Castaway Bay is?  No worries – it is a super fun indoor water park and hotel right down the street from Cedar Point where the forecast is always 82 degrees!  We received an over night stay, tickets to the water park, and got to attend a fun family event.  I must say I was super impressed with absolutely everything.  Every employee I came in contact with at Castaway Bay was super friendly and smiling.  They definitely made us feel welcome … …..
