Margo guessed it! We made our annual trip to Great Wolf Lodge for Tyler's birthday this weekend. Max and I steered clear of the water park (so no photos of Ty on the water slides this time) but we had loads of fun trying out the huge jetted bathtub in our room and cruising around the gorgeously decorated resort. I forgot how much fun it was to push a baby stroller and have oodles of total strangers come up and compliment your baby. Max was very popular!
Like last year, Great Wolf went over the top with their holiday decorations. It's a winter wonderland dripping with icicles, illuminated snowflakes and mounds of artificial snow. Max was in awe! His head was whipping from side to side and he had a huge grin on his face. He REALLY loved being in the arcade with his big brother. He was mesmerized by the lights and sounds.
Sadly, we were having too much fun and missed Santa. I'll have to think of somewhere else to take the boys for their visit. Happily, I did manage to get a great photo for our Christmas card. Keep a watch on your mailboxes. ;-)
Tyler opens the first of his birthday presents while we wait near the lobby for Daddy to finish checking in.
Having fun in the lobby inside the mini lodge.
Christmas Card reject. Max looked too schlumpy.
Getting acquainted with our room. Max loved the fireplace.
On the way to the main arcade, Tyler pauses to try and win a funky looking squishy ball. He didn't have much success, so we bought an even bigger one for him in the lobby gift shop. When Ty asked for my help, I did manage to scoop up a couple of big stuffed animals, much to Max's delight.
