Great Wolf

Last weekend we took the family up north to Traverse City to visit the Great Wolf Lodge. For those of you don't know about Great Wolf, it's a big hotel with an indoor waterpark. There are a few different ones in the state and they become quite popular during our cold winter months. The kids had a blast and so did we. Jack had a great time on all the slides and especially pretending to be a shark in the lazy river with Josh. And Eleanor by no surprise showed us again how fearless she is. All 23 pounds of her riding all the slides and tubes and jumping into the pools with no one catching her. She would just go under and bob back up with her life jacket. Her favorite words, "I do it myself Mommy!" All that fun and these are the only pictures we managed to come away with. (I was a little nervous about bringing the nice camera by all that water).


I realize it has been quite some time since we've had any real post with much content. The holidays just whizzed by and I can't believe we are already nearing the end of January. I'm not really interested in going into the past and pulling up the Christmas pictures, so on we go with a new year, new fun, and hope for God's grace in our lives.
