I received FREE tickets for my review of Water Country USA. All opinions are my own.
We FINALLY got in our first trip to Water Country USA this summer. The schedules have just never seemed to work out so I was THRILLED when we finally got the chance. And even better- we kept it secret from the kids.
When my sister, mom and the kids picked me up they were all eating lunch and talking about our future day at Busch Gardens (where they thought we were headed). It amazes me how little they notice sometimes- I got into the car with a big bag, in flip flops (which I never wear to the park) and a tank top hanging loosely over my swim suit. Did they see? Nope- they were all engrossed in their peanut butter and jelly. Sometimes they notice EVERYTHING (like if I gain a pound or get a stain on my shirt) but in this case absolutely nothing.
So we start driving to Williamsburg and get off at the exit for Water Country. As we pull up the giant sign is in front of us and they got SO excited. They had been begging all summer to go and my sister kept telling them it wasn’t going to work out. They were even more delighted to find that our plan was to go to Water Country USA and THEN to Busch Gardens (it’s right down the road) all on the same day.
After pausing to take this epic picture at the front gate (what you can’t really tell is that they were YANKING on each other’s arms and fussing the entire time) we ran inside to change the baby’s clothes and use the restroom. We have been to Water Country USA each summer for the past three years but somehow we missed the bathrooms just past the entrance at the park. They aren’t just bathrooms- they also have SHOWERS and CHANGING STALLS. I was in awe. I had been anticipating having to be a contortionist and change out of my bathing suit in a bathroom stall while trying not to touch anything that had possibly been peed on. Now I knew I was going to have a nice big room to change in. There were angels singing.
