Tues-Thurs of this week I am going to be on vacation with my extended family. We are going to Schlitterbahn water park in New Braunfels texas. We are actually staying at the park and I am a water park junky! I have been pretty depressed because I thought that I wasn't going to get to enjoy any of the fun of the park however all the has changed. Because we are actually staying at the park we will get to go in two hours early and they will stay open two hours later for us. That means, if I take precautions, I should be able to get some water slide time!

I went to Academy (a store) and picked up some clothes with UV protection. I also picked up a hat (also with UV protection) and a string that attaches it so it won't fly away. My bathing suit looks like a skirt however the outer part (the skirt part) is not attached so I picked up a pair of leggings to where with the bathing suite AND a long sleeved cover up that I will wear on the rides. I have sunscreen or my face, body and lips. Can anyone think of anything else that I need?

I have to rest quite a bit but I am hoping that with that morning and evening openings even I will get to enjoy myself. If nothing else it is a change of scenery and a place to cool off from the 100+ temps.

I will be checking in from time to time on my phone and will say hello but hopefully my family will be getting along well enough that I won't need an escape into my phone (seriously, that is up in the air),

That is a perk to get you to stay at the resort itself. Another perk is that the 67.00 tickets are 25.00!

Mari i am pleased mate for you and have one hell of a smashing time and your gear you've brought sounds ace for protecting yourself.

It's nice of the resort to open earlier, just chill, relax and enjoy yourself to how much your body can cope.

If you do manage to pop on line it will be lovely to know your fine, especially with the heat. xxxx

OOOhhh, I LOVE the New Braunfels Schlitterbahn. I went there as a chaperon for my daughter's band trip a couple of times. I stationed myself in the hot tub, and told the kids to come get me if there were any problems. As I remember, there are lots of shady trees overhanging much of the park, so you will have options.
It's also fun to explore those little German towns in the area, and the nearby outlet mall is another good place to go wander around.
Have fun!
Hugs,
Marla

I used to live in that area, Marla. I so love the shops and the outlet mall is to die for! I would need money to go to the mall but it was a great thought!

You forgot the most important thing, if you don't have it, your Lupus will get really bad, probably worse than you have ever had before. You have to remember your ....... SMILE..... what else would you want to bring?
