Great Wolf Lodge

When the school calendars came out last year, my older sister and I looked to see if our spring breaks overlapped at all since my kids always have 2 weeks of break. When we discovered that our second week of break was the same as their spring break, we decided to take our families to Great Wolf Lodge. However, a few months ago, I discovered that our school district changed our spring break and my kids were back in school that week! Luckily, the schools all excused them and we went ahead, especially since my younger sister decided to get married the same week in Utah! So right after our mini-vacay, we had to book it out to Utah for the wedding.
We ended up having a lot of fun.

 The boys both tried out the ropes course when we first got there. We had to wait a bit for our room to be ready. The girls did crafts and panning for gemstones. A lady gave Rosie a free glitter tattoo as well. She loved it and still sometimes asks about the hearts on her arm. (They have long since faded, but she remembers.)

 The two little girls loved the kid area and spent all the time in the park going down these two slides over and over. The fastest slide, the Wolf Tail, looks like a space capsule. You step in, cross your arms and legs, the capsule closes, and then there is a countdown to the floor dropping out from under you. You drop straight down and then do a loop. It's over really fast, but that drop takes your breath away and you feel like you are falling. PC, the four older kids, and I all did it, as well as some of my sister's family. The other slides with the tubes were a bit more enjoyable for me. :)
 The second day we were there, just happened to be free cone day at Ben and Jerry's. So we all got our free cone before heading out.

 Wednesday morning, we headed out to Utah. I had stocked up on small toys and treats for the kids to have on the ride. Rosie especially loved the twin babies I gave her!


  1. Such a fun place! And I loved watching the videos of the space capsule type one.
