Great Wolf!

Every year all of the pediatric residents go on a retreat. Last year wasn't all that great- it was on the coast at a sub-par hotel with not that much to do, especially since it was chilly at the beach. This year, however, was completely awesome. We went to the Great Wolf Lodge, which was only about 40 minutes away (compared to last year's 3-hour drive where Taylor threw up half way through...). It's a hotel with an awesome indoor water park. The kids had an absolute blast. Taylor was SO excited and had been talking about it the whole week before.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, Erik was totally fearless. He went down the same slide over and over and over... He would climb up the ladder, push his way past those lame 3-4 year-olds that were way too slow for him, and go head-first down the slide. People kept giving me wary looks and asking me if he needed help. Uh, no. He'd scream if we tried to help him. Thanks, though.

For some reason he was enthrawled with the life vest buckles. He probably spent a good 20 minutes buckling and un-buckling them.
On the last day our kids were pretty hammered. But Taylor keeps asking when we're gonna go to the hotel with the water park.

We love the Great Wolf! One of the most fun vacations we've ever had! Glad the boys had so much fun.

Your boys crack me up! So daring and so easily amused! I swear the best present for a 1-2 year old is a box filled with twisty straws and bubble wrap!

I'm suprised I didn't see Kent on the jet skiis with Taylor. Was it fun the adults too?
