Just because the twins' are back in school, and autumn decor and pumpkins are filling the stores doesn't mean we can't hang onto summer a little bit longer.
When I think of summer, I think of warmth, swimming, beaches, water parks, enjoying yummy treats, playing games galore, and having fun. And we've found the perfect place to do that year-round ... Great Wolf Lodge.
While in Kentucky over summer break we were invited to a media day at Great Wolf Lodge, and it just so happened our plan was to be back in California the day before so that I could finish last-minute paperwork for middle school registration. Well, it's not surprising that there were a LOT of shiny objects on our 3-day trek home in the car so we got home a little later than expected, finally falling asleep in our own beds at 1am after dropping off our rental car and making our way home. Then it was back up at 7am to head to Great Wolf Lodge for the day. Honestly, we were tired, and I didn't know how long we'd last, but we had never been before and when the kids heard water park they didn't care about missing a little sleep because I'd been promising all summer to get them to one.
We didn't stay overnight this time, but we did tour the rooms, the hotel, did as many of the fun activities they have for kids as we possibly could, and enjoyed an amazing lunch.
