Our family has just come through a particularly busy season the last few months. All great stuff--not stressful negative things, but nice wonderful, life-filling events plus the daily stuff! So the last few months we have not felt like we have been able to really "be" with our Mousekins (Mickey and Minnie). I know this sounds strange since I am a stay-at-home-mama, but it IS possible to be around your children all day and not really "be" with them and interacting the way I want to be.
Lo and Behold, on my Facebook page I saw a special rate from Honey Creek Resort that was too good to pass up! Yep, just what the doctor ordered! We had been there exactly one year ago (We had won a free family get-away) and we were ready to go back! Honey Creek Resort is a little over two hours from our house so its a perfect weekend family get-away!
Here was our wonderful cabin!
The weekend turned out to be MISERABLE weather. It rained and drizzled and dripped pretty much 24/7.
It was at the aforementioned restaurant that Mickey and Minnie discovered cheesecake for the first time and they LOVE IT!!!!
The Resort is expanding each year with more on-site activities and amenities. The Interpretive Center is nearly finished, the beach is ready for playing and the award-winning golf course is perfectly groomed.
It is fair to say that our family loves Honey Creek. It is a perfect get-away rain or shine especially for our stage of life where our kids just want to BE with us! Long vacations thousands of miles away are not that conducive to travelling with little ones--so a little get-away like this is ideal and recharges us as a family and does not break the budget! (yes I realize that was a poorly constructed sentence--but do not care enough to try to edit it)
When my mom asked Minnie what she liked about her vacation to Honey Creek; Minnie did not mention
the water park,
the stuffed bobcat,
or the oodles of time with her doting parents....
Instead she answered enthusiastically.."I WIKED DA CHEESECAKE!"
oh precious girl-- you may be a tiny little thing now... but take it from your mama--those rich tastes catch up with you-most likely at the age of 25 when your metabolism will suddenly go into hibernation and never wake up! So enjoy it now, my little Minnie!
