I can't even begin to explain how much fun my family had at Mr Bubble's 50th birthday bash at the Waterpark of America. Everything was so well planned and executed… And even though we had to work while we were there, even that was fun! We need to thank the great partners who made the party possible.
Mr Bubble and the Village Company
Mr. Bubble's parent company, The Village Company of Chaska, Minnesota, hosted the bubble bash. They throw a darn good party! In addition to the bubbly goodness of Mr Bubble they also make a wonderful line of adult bath products. I highly recommend the Aches and Pains Relief Mineral Bath Soak (great for a tired mom after a long weekend!)
Radisson Hotel and Waterpark of America in Bloomington, Minnesota
The party took place at the Waterpark of America located inside the Radisson Hotel. Our room, overlooking the waterpark, was so incredibly spacious; it was almost a suite. The bathroom was large with an additional large sink area in the hall so we had plenty of room for everyone to get ready without being in anyone's way. The girls had their own “room inside our room” complete with two bunk beds (4 beds total), a chest of drawers and television. Another very nice touch: individual night nights at the head of each bed.
Doug and I enjoyed our own space with queen bed, table and plenty of counter space and drawers for our clothes and things. We had a waterpark view from our balcony and though the waterpark was very noisy the doors did a terrific job of blocking the sound.
Thoughtful additions to the room were a nice sized refrigerator (great for light snacks and breakfast), a safe and pegs to hang wet swimsuits.
The Waterpark of America is huge- billed as “America's Biggest Indoor Waterpark”- so it's good to have a plan. Linda at Travels with Children has terrific tips for a trip to the waterpark.
Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America
No trip to Bloomington is complete without a stop at the Mall of America. Nickelodeon Universe provided us with unlimited ride passes and we spent a fabulous 5 hours at the mall. Yes, 5 hours. We took the girls on the log chute once. As you can see from Brenna's expression she wasn't thrilled with it. Caelan, on the other hand, was completely calm.
TGIFridays in Bloomington
We finished our trip with a late lunch at TGIFridays. Stretchy cheese sticks, yummy burgers and a hibachi skewer for me and we were on the road toward home.
FOX 9 Twin Cities
I also want to thank Todd Walker and FOX 9 for the live broadcasts before the party. We had a great time with you!
