The Great "Woof" Lodge

Gigi came for a visit last week and we have been busy makin' some memories! We went to the Great Wolf Lodge for a couple of days and had a great time.

Confidence among the swimsuit wearers was at an all-time high. I am always amazed at the freedom some people are able to exhibit when they don their swimwear. I usually find myself trying to achieve some sort of Houdini act by removing my cover-up and getting into the water all in one motion....without ever exposing skin in the process.

It can be done but it requires lightening speed and a large inner tube.

Here are some pic's from our adventures. The lighting was difficult so the pictures are a bit dark. The wet and humid environment coupled with the frenzy of screaming children made me want to twitch and convulse nervously, so I took several shots and packed the camera away for good.

Storytime at night in front of the fire

We have a place just like this about an hour from us and I have wanted to take the kids for a while now. Maybe this winter. Looks like you had fun!

I understand about the bathing suit thing. Love them Lands End Suits! (I JUST got a new one and love it)

What a cool place!
I am in total agreement with you on the swimsuits! After being on our cruise, I am again amazed at what people will stuff into small articles of clothing!

My family went to the GWL in Kansas City last year and loved it. We decided that since so many people have to take out their contacts and off their eyeglasses they can't tell how bad they look in their swimsuits!! Maybe the steam and humiditiy makes you look 10 pounds thinner in their minds.
Looks like you had fun too!
