|The Great Escape Lodge|
|There's a water park in there!|
|BG was excited to |
have his own bed!
Our suite had plenty of room for several people and included a mini fridge and microwave too. Of course, the fine connoisseurs of cuisine that we are...we loaded up and hit the local Wal-Mart for Lean Pockets and a six pack! No sense in wasting free refrigeration ya know!
The photo shoot started at 8:30 Saturday morning, so we were off before we even knew it! The water park is connected to the lodge, so it was great not having to layer on the clothes just to get out...it was just a short stroll through the hotel lobby.
|Snow won't freeze this river|
It was completely weird floating around on the lazy river and being able to look out the window and all of the snow and slush on the ground. You couldn't really get a chill from it because it was so dang hot in there though!
Apparently the photographers and marketing department thought we looked responsible enough to be real adults! We were assigned the roles of "happy parents" and paired with the cutest three-year-old you have ever seen! Loriana Walter of Chittenango, New York became our 'pretend' daughter for the day. Loriana could have easily been our child...she didn't have a shy bone in her body and could turn on the smiles when the cameras were around! (We think news anchor could totally be in her future)
|Our Six Flags family!|
|Meet the Parents: Jim, Lorrell and Loriana Walter|
|Are you sure it's winter?|
We also got to try the surf pool at The Great Escape Indoor Water Park! Since we have Brett's surfboard in storage here in upstate New York, you'd think he might be one of the better ones trying out the ride. Uh, no such luck. Thank goodness no one was filming/photographing while we were on it. Oh, wait...we were.
For our "hard work" modeling at the photo shoot, Six Flags gave us each four tickets and an overnight stay at the Great Escape Lodge. So, just a fair reminder...if you're coming to visit us soon, be sure to pack your swimmy suit!
