Great Wolf Lodge AKA Family Time!

Another one of our famous "surprise trips"!  The boys were excited when we pulled in and it wasn't long until we checked in.  The boys were thrilled with their "own room".  It had a bunk bed set on one side and another "daybed" on the other side.  They had their own TV and desk and were very happy with their own space. 

It didn't take long and we changed into our swimsuits and headed down to the waterpark.  At first, the boys were tentative.  Maxwell wouldn't even let go of one of us in the water and Payton wouldn't do anything without his lifejacket on.

But by day two, both boys were much more independent.  Payton went down every slide available all by himself.  He was SUPER brave even when he wasn't sure he wanted to do something.  Maxwell finally realized he could touch and swim without holding onto us and ventured out on his own.  He did great!  (That boy needs swimming lessons!)

Every night, Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, OH has a musical performance at the clock tower and then a character comes to read a story.  It was really cute and the boys loved it!  Compared to Castaway Bay, where we went last month, Great Wolf Lodge is bigger, has more to offer and is nicer, while the price is comparable.  Next time: Kalahari!
