    Our Super Quick Staycation – Split Rock Resort

    My family was provided complimentary accomodations at Split Rock Resort to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

    Last week our family went to visit a friend in Pennsylvania and even though we have a family house up there we wanted to take a “staycation” and take in some new scenery away from work and pretty much everything that was familiar. We had an amazing overnight at Split Rock Resort and I while I was actually pretty sad that we had to come back so soon, it was SO worth it.

     Excuse the grainy snapchat screenshot. This was the first thing he ran to though.

    Pretty much anything you can think of that you would WANT to do, you can do at Split Rock. You pay a small resort fee and you get access to all the amenities and equipment that the resort had to offer. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend that much time exploring outside because it was a rainy ugly day and it was super late once we got back from visiting with our friend.

     H20ooohh Water Park! 

    H20ooohh Water Park! 

    H20ooohh! is the resorts indoor water park which boasts over 53,000 square feet of attractions. During the off season the park is open Thursday – Sunday and we were there on a Tuesday so we didn’t get to go in. We definitely plan to revisit. 

    Split Rock has a variety of accommodations, and during our stay we got to stay in one of their bigger suites. Our room included a full kitchen, a living and dining room area, a separate bedroom  with an in-suite tub. It was beautiful and definitely one of the nicest rooms I’ve stayed in (sheltered life)! 

     This was my favorite part of the room! And RJs too! He loved taking a bath in the huge tub.

    The hotel has a couple different options for food so the morning we checked out I headed to Split Rock Grill for  breakfast. BABY!!!!!! Everything was delicious! The food was ready in about 10 minutes and I took it back up to the room since the boys didn’t want to get out of bed til the LAST minute. I enjoyed my breakfast silently… I’ll spare y’all the after pic but I did post it on snapchat. LOL. When they finally did get up we walked around the resort some before we had to head back to NYC and real life. 

     His little self was so excited and overwhelmed with the arcade. He didn't know which button to press first.

    Even though our stay was super short, we enjoyed being away from home. Most times when you stay away, you’re ready to go back home. This was not one of those times. We’re definitely going to look into visiting again in the summer when we can do more things outdoors and hopefully have a chance to visit the water park. If you’re looking for a quick staycation, a getaway from NYC, or a great place to visit on the east coast then Split Rock is it!

    I Fell in LOVE!!! – 2016 Kia Sorento SXL

    I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Kia Sorento SXL for a week free of charge thanks to the amazing people at Kia and Driveshop! As usual, all opinions expressed belong to me :). 

    So let me tell you this past week or two has been pure madness!! My sweet little boy turned one October 23rd and we threw him a big party the next day so I had a gazillion and one errands to run and just could not find the time to update. I didn’t think it’d be right to give y’all a half-rushed/poorly written post just as a filler. So forgive me please! I’m back :). 

    When I was given the opportunity to test drive the Sorento for the week I JUMPED at the chance because I was looking forward to all the extra space we’d have! Kia did not disappoint! 

     

    Let me tell you when they say FULLY loaded! They mean it! Everything I could think of, the Sorento provided right down to the heated steering wheel  and the blind-side detectors that beeped to let you know if it was unsafe to switch lanes! As soon as the car arrived one of the first things I said was “I love this car”. I truly felt sad when it was time to say goodbye!

    So of course mommy-brain and just business made me completely forget to take pictures of just how much space was in the interior of the car but LET ME TELL YOU! RJ got about 50/11 presents for his birthday and we were able to have the third row up, drive with 5 passengers and a car seat and still fit all the birthday presents and most of the decorations from his party. It is THAT spacious. I seriously have no complaints about this car.

    One day when I’m about that SERIOUS mom life (read: once I have multiple kids) I told James we HAVE to look into getting a Sorento. I NEEDS THIS CAR! LOL.

    *The 2016 Kia Sorento starts $24,900. For more details on pricing/features, visit here.*
