I talked with the group sales staff at the Beach and they are very excited about our visit. There is an exciting new element to our visit, Santa will be making an appearance! Pictures in a photo greeting card will be available to be purchased for $2 each! Santa visits and the craft will take place in the tents where the lunch will be served, but EVERYONE is welcome to come and visit santa and do the craft, even if you aren't eating the lunch buffet!

We had an awesome time last year and had wonderful weather! It was VERY WARM in the tents!

Please feel free to share this information with your homeschooling friends, regardless of their group affiliation, but remember that they need to RSVP to Laura.

What an awesome day! We were blessed with a snowstorm overnight and the waterpark took on a completely magical appearance! Over 200 homeschoolers braved the elements and came out for an amazing day. My only regrets, not getting to socialize with everyone because I was busy running around making sure everything was going OK and NOT WEARING 2 or 3 or 4 PAIRS of were my toes COLD! I didn't take many pictures (OK, for me 30 pictures isn't many!), hopefully I will be able to snag some from Deanne or Lisa!

The kids had a blast on the paddleboats and on the sled rides! Chris even went down the one slide IN HIS SWIMSUIT! It was HILARIOUS, hopefully Deanne got a picture of it. The boys had joked it would be funny to wear swimsuits because the event was at the waterpark where we spend so much of our summer and Chris decided to go ahead and do it!
