Labor Day Weekend

I love 4 day weekends because you can easily pack in a family vacation, a water park and celebrate two birthdays!! Needless to say we had a really busy weekend but the exhaustion and laundry is so worth it. We drove out to Grapevine, Texas and meet up with my Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister and her family. I haven't seen them since last Christmas so we have been overdue for a family visit. My Mom came up with a great idea of us all staying at Great Wolf Lodge and seeing how we have been to one before in Ohio we know that the Great Wolf is a really cool place. Of course, Ethan was so excited and has been talking about this for some time now so when he saw the HUGE Hotel, the excitement was just too much for him. As soon as we got there, the kids could see the water park and were itching to get wet. He loved playing with his cousins and hanging out with his grandparents. While we were there we were able to celebrate my nephews birthday which happens to be this week so we made our way on over to Chuck E. Cheese and celebrated JonMichael turning 2 and Trevon turning 9. However, all good things must come to an end so by the time we had all the swimming, eating, and playing that we could handle we had to say goodbye. Ethan was pretty upset about his part and told his Grandma Margie and Papo Jerry that he wanted them to come and live with us. He even offered up his room for them to sleep in and he would go sleep in the office. It was pretty sad to tell him no but we will see them again. As we were driving away, Ethan asked when we could go back to Great Wolf. I told him that we are going to try to do it again next year. He was okay with that answer because he knows he only needs to gorw 1 1/2 inches to ride the BIG adult rides!! I think it is worth the wait.

At the lodge they have a game where you become a magical wizard,
go around on a treasure hunt and use this wand to open each clue.
