Staycation – Gaylord Texan

This summer we chose to pack it full of local activities. After moving into a new house with an infant in tow, we knew we needed to keep things simple. Simple they are not, but fun they certainly are.  So, for our summer vacation, we chose the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. It’s a huge hotel with several restaurants, a pool, a water park… and alcohol. Thank goodness for adult beverages. Chris likened it to a Vegas resort without the casino. Accurate.

We went for 2 nights and made the most out of every minute. We also had guests! Nana, Papa and Maddie joined us for fun in the sun.

Family of five packed up and ready to go!

Nana, Maddie, and Papa all ready for the water park!

Do you think these boots will fit?
The best way to wait for food is silly faces…

Even Nana played along

During our stay, we did a scavenger hunt to find a bandit. These two played along nicely.

More time at the water park. These boys did awesome on the slides.

Getting a pic of all five of us is nearly impossible. So, just the four of us will do for now.

This was an outstanding way to spend some time together as a family and not stress too much about travel logistics. We will definitely come back!
