We rolled into our hotel, in Bozeman, pretty late. By the time we all got ready for bed it was close to midnight. After doing a little research we found out that this hotel had a pool with a waterslide. Our children were beyond excited, and so was my Lutheran Stud. When we arrived at the Ramada we were disappointed when we found out that the pool didn't actually open until 10 am. There was no way we had the time to wait until 10 o'clock to swim for an hour or so. We had places to be, and people to see.
The next morning my Lutheran Stud woke up, long before the rest of us, winked his eye at the lady at the front desk, and she agreed to open the pool for us. It took just minutes to get that water slide up and running.
While, at first, the big 90 foot water slide was a little intimidating it didn't take long before all of the children were sliding down.
The pool wasn't overly fancy, but it had a water slide people, and we didn't have to share with anyone else.
I went down the slide with Anna a few times. Elizabeth made a few trips up the stairs before she changed her mind and never did go down the slide.
Thomas was a little slow to warm up to this big slide, but when he did get the hang of it there was no stopping him.
We stayed at the Ramada Bozeman Hotel and I have to say that we had a great experience there. They were very accommodating to our large family. The hotel gave us a room with 2 queen beds and a pullout couch which was perfect for our family. The front desk staff was very friendly. This wasn't the nicest hotel we've stayed at, but the price was right and the accommodations were just right for our family. If you're in the area you should check it out. Hopefully, you'll have as much fun as we did.
After a short swim it was time to get moving. We thought we were making pretty good time until we were just an hour from my parents home. We were 10 minutes too late for the rock blasting, and therefore, we were stuck on the interstate for an 1 1/2 hours before we could get moving again. AHHH!! We made it though, and so, began our Seattle adventure.
