One of our favorite things to do at the Marriott Grande Vista Resort in Florida is to play in the POOL! They have 2 main pools that we like to play in. This year we noticed that the pool near the reception area was warmer than the pool with the water cannons, so we spent more time at the warmer one.
Here's the rest of the gang- Chad's parents are the ones who own the timeshare at the Marriott, so it's thanks to their generosity that we're able to take such a nice vacation there. His sister also came with her two kids.
Audrey loves the pool!
Tyson spent most of his time underwater.
Charlotte takes a jump off the side.
Tyson goes for a cannonball.
Christine preferred to splash around with her floats on.
And Moppy preferred to take in some sun! Again, problem with the pink fur...sure hope she put on sunscreen!
Here's a view of the other (chillier) pool. We played there a few times when it was hot enough outside!
This is the main pool again, but at dusk. We went there one night for their special Polynesian show.
The kids' cousin, Ollie, made sure Moppy got plenty of cuddles (and kisses) during the show. They really seemed to hit it off.
Here are the hula dancers.
And this guy played with fire! The kids were watching from the pool- I don't think any of us would have been brave enough to get that close if we hadn't been IN the water! We could feel the heat from the flames!
After the show, Charlotte and Christine and Moppy got a picture with the dancers. They were amazing!
And here are a few more pool shots from the next day:
Christine doing some tricks with the help of her dad.
And, the most exciting part of the trip for Charlotte- when she got to become a mermaid!
They have mermaid tails for rent at the resort, so she was able to use one for an hour.
She said it was a dream come true!!
Stay tuned for more Florida adventures...
