We had the greatest family vacation this last weekend. We went up to Washington to this new lodge they just opened called The Great Wolf Lodge. It was so fun!!
We had the coolest room...there was a little built in cabin that had bunk beds plus a little day bed. It had it's own flat screen TV. The kids were in heaven! It also had a queen bed and a couch with a pull out bed. We enjoyed the fire place...since it was freezing outside!The hotel had a HUGE indoor water park. It had a wave pool, lots of big water slides...some the kids were even brave enough to go down, a really awesome kid area and a big tree house water structure. Look close...that's us standing down just as the huge bucket of water dumped on us! Here's cute little Larkin...she was not a fan of the water at all! The sick little baby pretty much slept in her car seat the whole time...which was nice so we could better play with the other kids. Don't you just love her little rash guard...whoever invented them is my hero!
Good old Arwen, having tons of fun. Her favorite place to be was in the wave pool. She was content to let her life jacket do all the work and play in the waves!Brave little Noah went down a slide bigger than this one BY HIMSELF! I was amazed. He had so much fun!
You really need to appreciate this picture...Aaron was taking some pictures of Josh when Noah kicked water at him...Aaron miraculously saved the camera!
Here's crazy Arwen again!Joshua had fun, I think. He kind of just stuck to himself and played in the shallowest of water. The naughty little kid kept trying to eat his life jacket...mmmm....tasty!
This is the greatest picture ever...Joshua would stand at the top of the slide and point his little finger and tell all the kids, "No," when they tried to go down the slide. He was cracking me up!!
Cute little girl...just hangin' out, relaxin', all actin' all cool...

That looks like so much fun. I can't believe that is part a hotel! You guys do so many fun things. Your kids are so lucky to have such fun parents!

That place looks like so much fun. My brother and his family are going up there. We want to go eventually, but probably when Bella is older.

What a fun weekend! Who built the cave troll? And what in the world is a rash guard??? Anyway, you and your kids will remember this vacation forever.
