The kids did it! They earned a trip to Great Wolf Lodge (by trying new foods) and this week we fulfilled our end of the bargain by taking them there Monday. For 3 days and 2 nights we had a great time swimming and enjoying all the other amenities at the hotel. The kids loved the wave pool (we couldn't get Tyler out of it most of the time) and the slides. They also had fun with the Magi Quest (kind of a treasure hunt with a magic wand and interactive items set up all throughout the hotel), the arcade, story time, and a few other activities.
We reserved a room with a "kids cabin" with it's own little set of bunk beds and TV. The kids loved it.
It was quite a fun week for the kids. When they returned to school on Thursday it was only for a half day, due to Parent Teacher conferences (which neither of the kids' teachers had asked us to attend). And the school celebrated Dr Seuss' birthday on Friday with fun activities for the kids. Tyler's class even got to wear their pajamas to school.
It was drill week for Sam, so to keep ourselves busy the kids and I went to the Dr Seuss party at the library. They had an illustrator/artist there that did a fun little presentation then the kids got cake and punch.
