(I'm cross-posting this a few places)
So, there's a family that I grew up with. We used to do everything together, but they've (all) moved away about 7 hours from us. We would all get together for a vacation (baseball game, horsetrack, etc) every summer, but haven't the last few years. We're hoping for all of us to do it again this summer...probably down in Minneapolis as it's pretty central.
The 'parents' of this family have two children...with two kids each. I have Hannah and Sephrya. My sister's son is a month younger than Sephrya. We'd like to get everyone together, but the thought of 7 kids under the age of 5 in one place makes me want to drink a lot of alcohol (not condusive to watching children).
Things we've done in the past that I don't think will work are things like State Fair, Renissance Festival, Twins baseball games, horse races, amusement parks. I think camping is out just because of safety issues with water, woods, etc.
So, what WILL work well for us? My best idea so far is just staying a night or two in a hotel with a nice water park. That should be fun, pretty well contained, tire the kids out (lol), etc. I guess it's also my only idea. Anyone have anything else?
