With Rachel's and Benjamin's birthdays both being the week before Christmas, we decided to take week-long family vacation that entire week. Half of it was spent at Great Wolf Lodge, riding waterslides and enjoying lots of together time as a family.
They have story time in the lobby each night before bedtime and this time of year, even make it snow INSIDE!
Then on Benjamin's birthday morning at breakfast, the waiters and waitresses sang to both kids and brought them rich chocolate cupcakes for BREAKFAST! (Talk about a sugar high!)
We love Great Wolf Lodge and the fun it provides us as a family. The price is not bad because it's all-inclusive for the waterpark (where we spend most of our time anyway). When you go in the middle of the week, the lodge is full of families with small children or homeschooling families. If you have one close to you, we highly suggest it!
