Great Wolf Lodge

The highlight of our vacation for our entire family was spending two days at Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City. All fall we have been looking forward to these days together to play as a family, and we were not disappointed. This place was phenomenal! Chris and I talked on our way home about how much we are enjoying these days with our boys now that they are able to do so much and we feel like we can really enjoy the same activities together. Our boys loved the water, we only got out of the pool to eat and sleep. They were adventurous and went down every slide, which made it so much fun! THANK YOU Opa and Oma for taking us! We loved it all!

My pictures are in reverse order. I forgot how to upload them in the right way to make them go in chronological order, sorry!
Getting ready to leave, you can see Garrett holding back the tears.
Campbell was such a good baby, she slept well in the water park, and at night. We couldn't have asked for it to go more smoothly with her!

Every 5 minutes or so a huge water bucket is filled and then spills. There's always a huge crowd. The boys weren't big fans of the water pouring over them, but they were good enough to let me get a picture.
How many Marlinks can you get into a Lazy River?
Look at Crew's face...Doesn't that just say it all?

They even had a Starbucks; Chris and I were basically in heaven.
Can you feel the excitement???
Sorry, this one got out of order. Uncle Jesse corralling the boys. It was so nice to have him here to help with the boys when Chris or I were taking Campbell for a nap; he's such a good uncle!
The stockings were laid on the beds with care, filled by Opa and Oma who were there.

Saying goodnight to Wylie
Me and my boys at "Story time", the only disappointment of GWL, it wasn't much of a story...When it was over and we walked back to our room, Garrett said "So, when is the story?"
Oma on Campbell duty
She needed the suit, otherwise in just a swim diaper, no one would know this baldy is a girl!
I love this picture for the simple reason that it catches Chris breaking the rules!
Go, Opa!
Wow, Daddy!
