My mother - in - law went over board with our Christmas gift this year. Back in August, she informed me that our Christmas gift this year was going to be a weekend vacation, just the 3 of us. She told me to pick a weekend in December and she would take care of the rest. She wouldn't ever tell us where we were going, but after Halloween, she finally informed us that she had booked a weekend for us at Great Wolf Lodge!
I have been longing to go to Great Wolf Lodge ever since it had opened, I had called several times last winter, but because of all of the snow last winter, we could never get it together! So, when she surprised us with such a great vacation, I was more than excited!
This may be a picture overload, but there were so many wonderful things about Great Wolf Lodge, I wanted you to see them all, although it seems that blogger has managed to screw up the sequence of the pictures!
Great Wolf Lodge is famous for their indoor water-park, that is 84 degrees year round. There is also a lot for parents and children to do together in the water park. Addison really enjoyed the children's area, pictured above, but hubs and I also took turns watching Addison and enjoying some of the faster adult slides. It was great because none of the lines were ever very long, the longest that we waited for a slide is 10 minutes!
This is one of the pool's at Great Wolf, we found a friendly snake swimming in the water! Also in this pool is a basketball court!
Ahhh....the great clock tower show! This was so much fun, each night at 8 PM the clock tower in the main lobby turns into a magical show, complete with singing and dancing. After the show Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer came out to read a bed time story to all of the children! Afterwards, we went by Dunkin Doughnuts in the hotel to enjoy some yummy doughnuts before bed!
We also visited with someone special before the clock tower show!
Let It snow! It snowed in the lobby during the clock tower show!
Another view of the water park!
As you can see, we had a wonderful weekend away! Memaw, if you are reading thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful weekend!
As for me, I'm ready to go back to The Lodge!
