La Torretta - Lake Conroe (Day 1)

We knew we wanted to spend a long weekend somewhere this Summer for our family vacation.  LaTorretta had been one of the places we thought about visiting.  Our family was blessed and Kevin accepted a new job and was set to start the first of June so we knew we had to move our trip up to last weekend!  It would obviously be some time before he would have off from work.

Here we are arriving Friday mid-morning at the resort.  We got lucky and were able to check in upon arrival!  None of that 3pm check in crud!

The suite was gorgeous, very modern and large, about 600 sq feet.  We had a King bed and a sofa sleeper in the living room.

This is the sofa sleeper

Here is the view of Lake Conroe from our suite.

The resort has a marina where you can rent jet ski's, a ski boat or a pontoon boat by the hour or longer.  We chose the pontoon since we had the little man with us.

This was D's first boat ride so he was very curious.

I adore this picture of him and his daddy.  He had a lot of questions for Kevin.  As usual I am behind the camera and the video camera the whole time it seemed!

He was a little nervous about walking in the boat but he finally got comfortable and moved to the chair up front.

We knew they had a tube we could use and we thought one of us would take Dominic while the other one drove.  However, the law states one person must drive and the other holds up an orange flag and they are the look-out.  Take a guess who did which job, ha!

Leaving the marina D pointed out the Tahoe and Kevin and I thought oh my!  Hope it doesn't fall in the water (valet).  I had to snap this photo (for insurance purposes, lol)

The first night we decided to have dinner at the resort and it was an expensive buffet.  Expensive because I do not eat a lot of meat so I don't ever feel worthy of those prices not to mention I rarely, rarely do anything with the word buffet in it, yuck!

But the salad bar was awesome and hubs even went back for seconds!  Here we are before leaving our room.

After dinner walking around the resort and marina.

First you see the water park at the resort then the Lake is in the background.

Every evening the hotel lights this huge grill on their little beach cove so you can roast marshmallows and make Smores (tm)!  The kids (and adults) loved it!

And what's a resort without a life size game of checkers?  Ever thought how many times the staff has to line those dern things up again?

My boys.

A rare event:  Daddy behind the camera and he got a great shot!  Go Daddy!

We actually did the water park on Friday and Saturday but that will come in the next post.  We turned in around 9:30p after a very long day and everyone slept like a rock!
