This weekend, we finally redeemed the kids' Christmas weekend at Great Wolf! I really don't know who was more excited this year--the kiddos or the parents. This trip has truly become a vacation. We know the resort and the routine so well, and as the kids get older we pack less. It's fabulous. By all accounts, this was the best trip yet!
We hit the road Friday evening as soon as Daddy got home from work. This year, we opted to just grab a snack on the way and then order pizza when we arrived there. It is now tradition. It allowed us to settled into our room an hour earlier, and the kids were thrilled to be able to hang out in their wolf den for a bit longer before we finally declared lights out.
This year, the wolf den was especially fun for some reason. The kids decided to share the top bunk, and they hauled all manner of toys up there to play during the day. I had tucked some new art projects in their trunkies for the trip, and they were a huge hit!
Saturday morning, the kids woke up bright and early, anxious to eat the cereals that they are only allowed to have on vacation. They also decided that no one actually uses a door in a wolf den; the window is more fun:
After showers, we headed off to use our Paw Passes. The first stop was the animal station, where Squirrely and Bearby joined our family:
We spent the afternoon with Princess Ballerina and King Roar questing to save the kindgom in Magiquest:
Sunday was spent in the water park, questing, and just hanging out playing in the room. I did Issa's nails, and Daddy and Evan built a felt truck. In short, it was perfect. In fact, it was one pretty sweet weekend:
