Great Wolf Resort

To celebrate the beginning of summer (and end of their first full year of preschool), we went with some friends this week to the new Great Wolf Lodge in Washington. If you've never been, it was an amazing experience for all of us. The whole family got two day passes to the very cool indoor waterpark that's connected to the resort so we spent the night and played and played.

Jon loved the high-thrill Howlin' Tornado, but me...not so much (especially not backwards!). I enjoyed the regular winding slides, and they had kid-sized slides that Karly rode over and over. Kiki liked the big wave pool and hot tub. And Kiki REALLY liked the white-chocolate pretzel with sprinkles that she got for a treat. In fact, she woke up this morning panicked that she couldn't find her special pretzel and begged me to search the house for it. I tried to convince her that it was a dream--she ate her pretzel a couple days ago--but she got mad at me for not looking fast enough. :)

So we splashed around for hours and ate great food and had some wonderful family time. We'll be back again next year.

Hey! My name is Krystal and I literally JUST finished your book, "Going for Broke". I wanted to tell you that it was excellent and I enjoyed every minute of it. Well, half of the time I was shaking the book saying, "Stop! You're ruining everything!", but it was still enjoyable :-). Thank you for a thoroughly entertaining and enlightening book!
