Enjoy All-Year-Round Fun at an Indoor Water Park New England

Vacations are special events that people of all ages greatly anticipate and enjoy. However, the increasingly demanding and hectic lifestyles that many people are currently leading are preventing them from taking vacations as frequently as they would want to. As a result, planning a vacation is often met with certain restrictions in terms of distance, budget, and time.

Fortunately, indoor water parks entered the American mainstream in the mid-1900s. They proved to be worthy alternatives to faraway beach destinations not only because of their swimming pools, but also for their various amenities and water activities. If you are looking for an indoor water park, New England offers many choices and promises endless fun without having to travel hundreds of miles to the nearest ocean or spending a fortune on pricey resorts.

Today’s indoor water parks can truly give even the best resorts a run for their money. Some of them can have more than 10 lodges in which guests could stay while they enjoy the vast array of pools and slides. The largest indoor water park was built in 1985 and has an area of more than 5 acres. Moreover, it houses the largest wave pool in the entire world!

People that are more adventurous are sure to find something they like in an indoor water park. Some parks offer daredevil raft rides that swirl people up the sides, which can measure up to 30 feet. Another ride drops rider-filled rafts down multiple storeys through a chute, and sailing over hundreds of feet of water. Tree houses can also be seen in many indoor water parks, and are very popular among young guests. A tree house would include cargo nets, suspension bridges, and buckets filled with water to keep the climbers wet.

The biggest advantage of planning your vacation in an indoor water park is that you do not have to be concerned about what season it falls on. In addition, indoor water parks can be found in virtually every state in the US, so people have numerous options from which to choose. Apart from water rides and amenities, guests can also play games at the arcade, relax at the spa, have fun at the zip line, and go up on a ski gondola. Others even have museums built inside the water park to provide guests with a unique experience.

Indoor water pools are one of the few places where both young and old people can have equal amounts of fun. The slides often comes in various sizes to accommodate all ages and preferences. Some of the water parks incorporate a general theme to their ambience and rides in order to give their guests an experience that other water park do not offer. Some of the themes that indoor water parks have include Polynesian, African Safari, and even Science.

The multitude and variety of the activities that indoor water parks have to offer can wear you out right away. Thankfully, you can simply go to your room to recharge and freshen up before going back to the rides. Most of these water parks provide free bath products and towels for their guests to ensure their comfort and convenience. Another great advantage of spending your holiday at an indoor water park is that it can fit any type of budget. Most water parks offer vacation packages that cater to almost any budget, and schedule.

How to Make a Valid Decision and Follow Through

Many are faced with decisions to make every day, whether it be what to purchase for groceries, what items your children need or much bigger decisions such as divorce, we all have decisions to make on a daily basis. I decided that I would make an easy to follow list of how you can make a valid decision and follow through.

Because you know, I am like so good at that myself. {if you are sensing sarcasm, you are correct}

While I may not be great at following my own advice, and really, who is? I am very great at lending advice that if followed through with makes perfect sense and actually works out as a benefit to your life as you know it! Come along with me, amuse me if you will.

Read on …

How to Make Valid Decisions and Follow Through

Yes. No Maybe. We live in a world full of non-committal responses and actions. We fear to say YES and NO more and tend to lean closer to MAYBE. This is not okay. Maybe doesn’t get you anywhere. Except, well, honestly I firmly believe maybe will get you nowhere fast.

Okay, are you ready for my advice to start? I hope so. I really do. I need to feel as if I am helping someone because Spring is here and it’s time to turn over a new leaf!

  • Acknowledge that there is a Decision to be Made – Come face to face in the mirror with your own self and make a firm realization that things just have to change. A decision has to be formed, sooner rather than later.
  • Understand What Decision has to be Made – Take the scenario that you are faced with, a piece of paper, a pen and write down a pros and cons list of this decision you are faced with. Do not do this during times of high emotion or hormone fluctuations.
  • Share Pros and Cons with a Close Friend – Take your list of pros and cons with the decision written above it and ask a close friend if they feel your pros and cons list are truly valid enough to argue a point to make the decision you must make. Logic, emotions and a third unbiased person’s opinion matter in the decision making process.
  • Set a Date – Make yourself commit to a date that you have to address this decision by and do not back peddle. Stick with this decision, even if it’s the hardest decision you have ever made in your life. Setting a date allows you to take time to continue to think it out, rationalize with yourself and hold yourself accountable to take action.
  • Speak Truth and With a Matter of Fact Tone – This is a great tip for those deciding to divorce or end a friendship, we can notice if a person is using a confident “they have made their final decision tone” or not. Do not allow the other person to feel as if there is hope, room for them to change your mind or anything like that. Keep a matter of fact, this is how it is type of tone when speaking.
  • Be Sure to Address Valid Reasons for Decision – When making the decision be sure that you are dealing with it in regards to logistical reasons and emotions. Sometimes, depending upon the decision to be made you may have to weigh heavier on the emotional side than logistical side, but I am sure you can determine which type of decision this falls under.
  • Breath and Follow Through to the End- This is the last step, be sure to breath and move forward from here. Do not fear how the other person affected by your decision is going to respond because in all reality you are the one person who matters most and that goes to saying without being selfish. You are not selfish for putting your own needs/sanity/emotions/well being ahead of anyone else. Do not stop to look back, we only move forward in life!

These tips are pretty much great for any scenario but with some situations it may require a long process to completely finish and follow through with. The whole point to this post really is to …

Allow yourself to be important. Your needs and emotions are valid. Life is about living it to the fullest in your  happiest of ways, do not allow anyone else to make you question your own well being. It isn’t fun to hurt others, but sometimes in life we have to in order to find our true self and love our true self.

What To Make With The Bread Ends from HomeMade Uncrustables #recipe #foodie

Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks Recipe #foodie

Recently I shared a blog post citing that you can make homemade uncrustables way cheaper than by purchasing the store boxed brand Uncrustables. Click here to see that recipe. Today I share with you what I made during my food experiment evening over the weekend using the bread ends leftover from the homemade uncrustables I made for the week.

Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks

Ingredients:

  • Greased 13 x 9 pan with bread ends leftover from uncrustables creations covering the length of pan
  • Garlic Powder
  • Garlic Salt
  • Approx 1 1/2 cups of your favorite flavor shredded cheese
  • Butter/margarine

How to Make:

  1.  Make sure the 13 x 9 pan is greased well because you won’t want to have any of the excess cheese baked onto the pan and you will want to have an easier time pulling up the sticks once cooked fully.
  2. Preheat over to 400 F degrees.
  3. Bread one side of the bread ends as you spread butter upon them, place one by one into the pan until you have a single layer of bread ends that fill the pan.
  4. Open the Garlic Powder and sprinkle evenly across the bread ends. Repeat this step with Garlic Salt.
  5. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the bread, it’s okay if you get some on the greased pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes, check and maybe bake another 5 minutes. Basically bake until the bread is somewhat crunchy and the cheese is fully melted.
  7. Let cool down, serve and Enjoy!
