On Saturday, we spent the day at the hotel water park, which was FILLED with kids. My sister-in-law and her husband brought their three children (Sarah, Brooklyn, and Lily) and their grandnephew, Elijah. My husband and I, of course, just brought Little Lewie. The kids had a blast swimming in the pool, going down water slides, and playing on the splash pad while the adults mostly rested at tables on the side.

Lights out was around 10 o'clock as we had to wake up early the next morning to bring Sarah and Aunt Missy to the DCU Center. She had to be there for practice at 8:30 a.m., and her performance was slated for 10:20 a.m. Awards wouldn't happen until 1 p.m., so we knew we were headed for a fairly long day. I didn't know how Lewie would handle all the waiting, but to my surprise, he was great. He loved listening to the music and watching the performances. Only twice did he request to go home, which prompted me to remind him that we had to wait until after the award ceremony.
As for the "Sassy Cats"... well, they won first place! We were so proud of Sarah. We already knew she could do these amazing flips and tumbling, but nothing could replace seeing her live performance. We were allowed to go to the front stage when it was their turn, and the girls honestly took my breath away. It was a very proud moment for this aunt and a very proud moment for Lewie who absolutely adores his cousin.
