We had a good time on vacation, but I think we’re all glad to be back.
There was one cute little thing that happened, that I wanted to share real quick.
We had a nice hotel room, it wasn’t a fancy suite or anything, it was one room, but it had a king size bed, a ‘transformer’ couch (that turned into a bed; Alex was very excited at sleeping in a transformer bed that masquerades as a couch), and in the same room, a jacuzzi whirlpool bath.
We don’t have a jacuzzi at home, of course, so this is a new experience for Alex. He was quite excited at taking a bath in the big tub that makes the bubbles.
So our very first night, after going out to the indoor pool so Alex could swim and slide until the place closed, we started the tub filling with water, with Alex cavorting around in the tub, splashing water and wanting us to start the jets.
As soon as the water filled over the jet outlets, we told him we were gonna start it, so to be ready for lots of bubbles. And I hit the button.
Alex got nailed from every direction by high force jets of water, and water exploded throughout the single room, spraying every surface.
Cassie and I lunged for the shutoff button, getting drenched in the process.
Fortunately we were still in our suits.
It turns out that the last people using the tub had angled all the jets to point straight up, as far as possible.
And had cranked the power controls to max.
So when we hit the button, the jets sprayed water clear across the room, soaking the bedding on both beds, and hitting the sliding glass door on the far side.
Alex, fortunately, enjoyed the spraying.
We had a bit less fun trying to sleep, as the replacement linen we got from the front desk was for a single, not a king… and the pillow cassie brought to sleep on was also soaked good. Boy, it was cold with Cassie hogging all the covers!
But, it was certainly an exciting moment of surprises and adventure!
I hadn’t seen on the brochure that the hotel was so exciting, they brought the waterpark right into your very room! Woot!
Now that’s entertainment!
