The Story of Mike, My Fight For Lilly & My Defective Mind.

My Daughters 9th Birthday trip to Ohio

3For Lilly’s 9th birthday we decided to take a trip instead of a birthday party.  We stayed at Maui Sands Resort & indoor waterpark in Ohio for the only reason as it had an indoor water park.  My friends George and his wife Tina came with us.

All the places we stopped at and stuff we did.

  • Maui Sands Resort & indoor waterpark
  • Merry-Go-Round Museum
  • African Safari Wildlife Park
  • Marblehead Lighthouse State Park
  • Lakeview Park & Beach
  • The Edison Birthplace Museum
  • Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
  • Ryan’s was lilly’s favorite restaurant. It was a buffet style place.
    • Address: 5310 Milan Rd Sandusky, Ohio

On the way we took a stop at a rest stop and Lilly and Tina (george’s wife) meet a squirrel.

Rest Stop Squarle

We stated at the Maui Sands Resort & Indoor Waterpark.

Cost $159.oo a night.

Lilly really loved the Water Park, the room where not as big as I thought and wasn’t really ready when they said they would be for early check in. The food was not good at there dinning area. I paid extra for the breakfast and that was way not worth it. Next time I would stay somewhere else and just by a day pass to the water park. But Lilly liked it and that is what really mattered.
