Celebration of the Senses Day! Let's celebrate!

How often do you really take time to stop and smell the roses? Probably not that often! So why not take some time for yourself this week to celebrate your senses at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa!

Listen to the waterfalls & fountains as you make your way through the tropical, landscaped grounds of Glen Ivy or unwind in a Jacuzzi or two! Indulge your sense of smell and taste with a Glen Ivy Shrimp & Citrus Salad (my fave!) or any other menu item of your choosing in Café Solé. Feel our famous Red Clay Mud as it exfoliates the skin, leaving you relaxed and rejuvenated, & watch as your worries of yesterday and today disappear into thin air!

With our new summer packages available Tuesday through Thursday, a trip to Paradise has never sounded more relaxing!

The Weekday Getaway Package includes admission to Paradise, the Grotto Body Moisturizing Experience, a 50 minute Swedish massage and Lunch in Café Solé – sensory overload, we know!

Or, enjoy your day in paradise with a friend-- the new Better Together Package includes 2 admissions to Paradise, 2 Grotto Body Moistuzing Experiences & Lunch for two in Café Solé.

Get away this week and celebrate those senses (and yourself, of course!)! We look forward to seeing you in Paradise!

If you would like more information on any of our Summer Packages, please contact an agent at 888-GLENIVY, or ME at kristen.koman@glenivy.com. I would be happy to assist you!

I leave you with this ... "A father carries pictures where his money used to be." -- Author Unknown (or atleast this applies to my Dad). Anyone else?

Father's Day Contest Finalists

Congratulations to the Glen Ivy Father's Day Contest finalists! Be sure to read each story before voting! The winning father will be awarded with a "Day in Paradise," which will include admission and lunch for two, a custom massage and a hot towel facial at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa! We can't think of a better way to say, "Happy Father's Day Dad!"

Here we go:

Finalist #1 Here is our nomination written by me BUT told by our 5 year old Coby!! "My Dad is the super funniest guy cause when he gets home from work he takes his work clothes off and puts on his sweats and he pulls them up super high to his boobs and says 'Did I do that?' like Erkel does. It is so funny I can't stop laughing and my brother too! You should pick him for dads day because he is the funniest one I know and he always cracks me up and my brother Collin!" Thanks so much. --Coby (5), Collin (4) & Lori

Finalist #2 The funny story that exemplifies him [Dad] most is the "Goat Incident". My dad willingly took part in a school charity auction where the person who raised the most money had to kiss a goat in front of the entire elementary school and parents. My dad, thinking he would never win in a million years, agrees to participate and ends up getting the most donations. So here goes this lifer Marine with his crew cut hair and Semper Fi attitude infront of the whole school planted a big, smelly, smooch right on the goat's lips. Needless to say the entire school erupted in laughter and the parents taunted him. Later he got his revenging chasing my mom around trying to kiss her with his goat germ lips! --Maggie

Finalist #3 At a family reunion a few years ago everyone got a little too ... let's just say carried away. All of the adults were having a great time hanging out then they busted out the karaoke machine, that's when it all started. To my suprise some of my family members were actually good or even better at singing while being intoxicated. Then it was my dad's turn. He stepped up to the plate and began singing "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" to my Uncle Aaron in possibly the highest pitch I've ever heard come out of him. He even had a special dance he made up to go along with it. What made it even better was that he had on his sunglasses and a hat to make him seem cool. He thought he was actually good because everyone was laughing and clapping. The only thing was they were laughing at him, not with him. It was completely embarrassing but it's my dad and I can't help but love him even more when he makes me laugh. To this day we still have incriminating photos of him dancing around the living room with his microphone, a sunburn, and his hat. I love my whacky daddy. --Shana

Finalist #4 Right before Valentine's Day my brother took my diary and read it. My Dad knew I was upset and decided to get me a new diary as a gift for Valentine's Day. He went to the Sanrio Store to get me a Keroppi diary, since that was my favorite character at the time. My Dad was born in Mexico and English is his second language. When he arrived at Sanrio he asked the sales girl if they sold "diarrheas". He couldn't think of the word and kept saying he needed to buy a "diarrhea". He said the sales girl kept looking at him as if he were crazy until finally he explained that he needed a book where people write in it, the sales girl was then able to catch on and he was finally able to buy me a diary for Valentine's Day. --Vanessa

Finalist #5 It started out a regular day and ended as a memorably funny one. My mom told me we were going to Mervyn’s to look for a bra for me. I was excited; it would be my first bra. My family isn’t shy. I was not embarrassed at all that my dad was coming with us. That would soon change. As we walked into the store, we went straight to the panty and bra section. A sales woman walked up to us and asked if we needed any help. My dad answered “we need an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder please!” I was mortified! I hid behind my mom as she sent him to another section of the store. Needless to say he never went with us again and this is something we will never forget. Yet I love him for giving me moments like this to share with people as it makes my life more fun. --Tonia

Vote now for the funniest father!
