Great Wolf Lodge

Last week we took a bit of a family adventure. Canaan was on winter break and we were all in need of a break from winter. As the snow was falling in that Arctic storm the east coast braved, we braved our way a couple of hours north to the 84 degree indoor hotel/resort at Great Wolf Lodge.

How fun it was to dig our swimsuits out of summer storage and cut the tags from the new flip flops I had stored away for the boys.
The lodge was enormous, and beautiful. Still decorated for the winter season, it was like walking into a cozy ski lodge. Leather couches and a large fireplace welcomed us.
We barely checked in and settled into our room before we were changing into our swimsuits and heading down to the indoor waterpark we had so highly anticipated. Let me just say that there is something so fun about seeing the snow fall outside while floating down a lazy river in 84 degree water.

Because of the winter weather and the fact that many schools were not on winter break the water park was practically empty. We were able to enjoy the slides, wave pool, lazy river, and other things without a wait or crowds.

The boys had an absolute blast. Mike and I did as well. We typically don't do these kinds of family outings. We generally go for more "off the beaten path" outings. With that said, I am so glad we went on this fun family adventure.

Nightly pajama story time at the Clock Tower
I found myself singing "back to life..back to reality.." for a few hours after we got home. Getting away for a night to do something out of the ordinary was a break from the daily routine of life~ and we all know that is needed from time to time.

We were given a generous discount by Great Wolf Lodge. They often offer package deals throughout the year so be sure to check their website.
There are several Great Wolf Lodges around the US.

We also like the fact that they are the first – and only – national hotel chain to have all of its U.S. properties Green Seal-Certified. Check out their Project Green Wolf here.
