Checking in at the Lodge.
M swimming at the Abe Martin Lodge aquatic center. They even had life guards on duty at a hotel pool!
C trying out the water spray feature. There was a lazy river, a water slide, zero depth entry!
Another cool feature is this old wildfire watch tower that is not converted into a scenic viewing tower. The kids climbed all the way to the top in open fresh air!

With Aunt K, we spent a few hours at the WonderLab Museum in Bloomington. C spent most of his time playing with this contraption, which is a system of tracks and simple machines that move colored golf balls throughout the machine and children can control where the balls go. He was enthralled.
M is creating very large bubbles!
That's a bubble too!
We also spent several hours at the Bloomington Park District Bryan Park Pool, which reminded me fondly of the old Crystal Lake Pool I grew up at.
With Aunt K we grilled out dinner on Saturday night and watched a movie. It was great to spend some quality time in her neck of the woods!
