Get-Away {Great Wolf Lodge}

Merry Chirstmas!!! I hope you are having a fun and memorable Christmas season. I'm so grateful that, even during this busy time of year, you are taking the time to read my blog. It is so encouraging to me to go to the "Stats" section of my blog dashboard and see how many are reading my blog! It keeps me going!

In early November, my dad and those brothers who were old enough to carry a gun went hunting in Fredericksburg, TX. So, us girls (and little boys) tried to think of something fun to do. We thought and thought, but my mom was the one to come up with the idea of going to Great Wolf Lodge. Apparently, a few years ago when we were at the ice exhibit at the Gaylord Texan (which was right across the street), my mom overheard another mom talking about the amazing indoor water park at "the Lodge." So, we decided to go there, but because of our busy schedule, we were only able to stay two days and one night. I thought, "That's almost not worth the trouble." Yeah, . . . haha. We were worn out! Both days the water park was open until 9pm, both nights we left the water park at 6. We were sore and exhausted. It was awesome! The big water slides that were our favorites were about eight stories up. I think I climbed a total of 263 stories in two days! But, it was loads of fun! And, much to our suprise, we came home to a freezer-full of deer. The boys shot eight deer, including a 10-point buck that Kiah shot! We are supposed to go back to the Lodge for a 3-day stay sometime early next year. : D

So, here is a peak into what our short get-away was like. Only once, did I get my camera dangerously close to the water, but it was worth it. :) I'll admit, I was tempted to take my camera with me down on one of the water slides. :-X  I think that I will take a disposable camera with me next time I go to the lodge so that I can do more fun and daring stuff. Enjoy!



I love the architecture of this building. I don't know why. Maybe the colors?
