Honey Creek Resort

Yesterday we drove a couple hours South to the Honey Creek Resort to stay overnight. They have a small indoor water park and we thought it would be something fun to do with Bennett while the weather is still cool here. We had a lot of fun at the pool but the overnight part was not so pleasant! We were hoping Bennett's pack 'n play would fit in the bathroom but it was far too small so we had to "hide out" in the room with all the lights off while he was trying to fall asleep. What do other parents do in this situation?? Just go to sleep when your kids do? Or let them stay up later than usual? We haven't had Bennett in a hotel in, I can't remember how long, so that was a learning experience. Anyway, it took him a long time to finally go to sleep and I've had a cold so the rest of the night was interrupted by my incessant coughing and nose-blowing. And then of course Bennett woke up early saying, "Where'd Mommy and Daddy go?"

We'd recommend the hotel for it's cheap spring rates but probably better for kids a tad older. Overall though, it was fun watching Bennett play in the pool and get prepped for lots of splashing this summer!


  1. i love the pic of you and bennett...i think he has your eyes for sure. what a cutie, and his hair is getting curly! i love curly hair on boys!

  2. That is so funny you went there, Dave has been wanting us to try it out, but we just haven't had the chance. The over night hotel thing is interesting with kids, isn't it? We always did great with just Layla, but now with Cooper and Layla.....it's a challenge!

  3. Honey Creek resort in Rathbun Lake is the best summer experience. I've been there last month when I visited my hunting land in Iowa. I love hunting big bucks and whitetails in Iowa. There are lots of hunting lands for sale in Iowa.
