A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

Family Vacation!

We decided to surprise the kids with a little family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge!

Katheryn was worried about Twinkle, our elf on a shelf, so he came with us!

Of course we had to get a room with the bunk beds. Both the kids love them, but Nick never wants to go on the top bunk. He just likes sleeping in the same room as his sister

We decided we were going to try out the MagicQuest game this time.
Nick had fun, but he got really tired (I think we'll need his wheelchair next time).
But Katheryn had a blast running around!

We went for 2 nights/3 days, but I didn't take all that many pictures while we were there.
One morning at breakfast we decided on some selfies!

The have this giant gingerbread house in the lobby. And it is an actual gingerbread house! You can actually book to eat your meal there.

We also got to meet Santa and Mrs Claus (and this is inside the gingerbread house)

I only have pictures at the pool the last day (I didn't bring my water camera).

Nick and Kyle stayed in the big pool most of the day.

Katheryn and I would go out and explore different slides. We would go on the medium slides and race each other down. And we went on the big Wooly Mammoth slide multiple times (and a lot of begging), but I couldn't get her on any of the other slides.

BUT I did get Kyle and Nick on the Wooly Mammoth slide, 1 time. We carried Nick and waited in line to get on the slide, and then when we got to the top, they told us because of Nick we could have skipped the line.
But Nick wasn't interested in the slide again.
But I did get 1 great picture!

But the kids had lots of fun in the water. We would spend a couple of hours in the pool before getting out and doing 'land' stuff (MagicQuest, the arcade, bowling... which sucked... visiting the gift shop, or just relaxing in our room)

Of course once we left the kids were asking when we were going back again!

It was a wonderful winter mini-vacation!
