Sandcastle would be a great choice for a fun-filled family day to relax in the cool water, have fun on the slides and enjoy each others company. Whether you are local or coming from out of state, Sandcastle is a great choice for something to do this summer and is suitable for all ages.

We were fortunate to attend Sandcastle a few days ago and we all had a blast!

My little ones enjoyed the kiddie slides and the wave pool. We could not get them to come out of the wave pool. My 4 year old was crazy in there! He loved every minute of those waves coming at him!

I was very impressed with the lifeguards on duty. They were very vigilant and were professional at every moment. Safety is the first thing I look at as a mother and I was immediately impressed. I felt very comfortable myself and for my family, knowing that they were always paying attention and very serious about the safety rules.

Look at these guys on the slides in Wet Willie’s.

We even were able to experience the cabanas they have by the wave pool. It was very nice knowing that only those who have a cabana were back in that area. It was a great place for us to relax and eat our lunch.

My oldest daughter and I enjoyed the waterslides. We first tried out Lightening Express and Blue Tubaluba. It took me a while to convince her to try Boardwalk Blasters and when she did, she was very proud of herself. We tried Thunder Run a few times and finished with Dragon’s Den where we both screamed at the thrill!

It was definitely a great day for the entire family. We were exhausted but with that kind of exhaustion that was reminiscent  of having  wonderful experience!

Make those unmatched socks fun and useful again

20140709_160314 q (1024x576)Do you have a lot of unmatched socks like we do? Sometimes they run away and disappear after their first wash! I am always hesitant at throwing them away because I have hope that the other one will show up soon. It never does though and I’m left with unmatched socks. Then I began thinking of what I could do with them to get use out of them.
