Great Wolf Lodge

We have never gone up to the Dells in the winter as a family before. We've gone once or twice in the summer, but our summers are generally reserved for baseball and camping in Michigan, these days. It's been a pretty harsh winter, and trip to a water park was just what we needed. We drove up on Sunday and were glad to see the place was at less than 50% capacity by the evening.

The kids, of course, loved it. Mary jumped right in~
The wave pool was pretty awesome~

Who doesn't love a hot tub?

Sam as actually more than a little hesitant to go down some of the water slides. Once he overcame that first fear (for each slide), he had a blast~


I love this picture - I hope they always remember who their first friend was~

There was a funnel type slide called the Howlin' Tornado that Sam took a lot of convincing to try. He ended up loving it, but needed to be re-convinced the second time down, as well. By the third time, though, he was rearing to go.

We really had a great time just hanging out without any of the typical distractions. We went out to eat a couple of times, and played card games before bed. The boys also played a little Magiquest while we were there, too. It was a nice break from the cold weather at home. I can't wait for summer!
