The Great Wolf Lodge...and the beginning of the birthday fun!

Larry had to work on the girls' birthday so we decided to leave a week early and head up near Olympia to the Great Wolf Lodge. We had been to one in Cleveland and knew how fun it would be so we were so excited when the built one here. We headed out Saturday morning and got there as soon as they would let us in the park. The girls had a blast and took to the water like fish! It made me really excited to use the pool this summer!!!

Aana also took a ton of pictures with her new camera...Thanks Lynette and Dave...she is loving it!

The girls enjoyed craft time, bingo, story time with all of the other kids, a fun birthday dinner with chocolate cupcakes...and of course, the waterpark. Addie loved the wave pool and Larry and Aana enjoyed the bigger slides. We were all exhausted by the time we spent two days there...and we loved the ride home in the new family van. (I am amazed at all that you can put in that thing!!!)

I had pictures of some of the things I witnessed. There are always the people in tiny bikinis that shouldn't be wearing them...but I was also lucky to witness a grown man picking his nose and eating it...over and over. I love people watching in large, public places, but this place was just full of entertainment!! (RANDOM...I know. That is just how I am !)

This trip looked like so much fun!
Barring the nose picker, I think you had an ideal little retreat vacation.
What a month for birthdays and celebrations!
