We celebrated the beginning of the year with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge last weekend.  We had a marvelous time with our friends Jeff, Michelle, Sage and Luna.  The first hing we did was head to the waterpark to splish and splash!  These waterbikes were a favorite of Jude’s.  Squirting water was everywhere.  A little too omnipresent at times!


Gigi showed off her swimming chops in the bigger deep pool.  She crossed the lilypads several times and truly enjoyed the Canyon River Run.  We climbed the stairs to whoosh down the canyon several times over the weekend.


Jude marveled at the gigantic waterpark.  So much to see, so much to do.  It was almost overwhelming!


One of the most exciting parts of the adventure had to be the MagiQuest.  We purchased the wands for 14.99 and activated the game for 9.99.  It seemed expensive until I saw the level of excitement and engagement from the kids.


We spent HOURS climbing stairs, figuring our clues and waving our wands at various interactive crystals, pictures, maps and screens.


Eventually, the kids earned all of the runes and were ready to fight the dragon…  Except we were out of time.  Fortunately, the wands will wait until next time when we can renew the game again, play it all over, and go back to fulfill our quest.


Bathtime for Mom and Gigi, after a rough day at the waterpark and on a quest, there was no better way to relax at the end of the day than with a jetted tub full of bubbles.  It was a wonderful trip!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
