someone asked me why we took off like that...i said, "my family needed some spoiling."
so, that's my story, folks. we needed some bachart-time. just the four of us. it meant missing out on some terrific stuff. it meant riding in the car for nine hours in two days. it meant spending a decent chunk of vacation change. it meant arranging and rearranging stuff on the calendar.
it was awesome.
we headed west for our adventure, taking the scenic route through white pass. i drove, so we made record time with minimal car sickness. tony had much to say about my driving, like "would you please not follow that semi so closely as we slalom through this snow tunnel" and "there are these white signs with numbers on them that tell you what speed to drive".
mmm hmm... tony's disclaimer: he is older and wiser and more responsible and that is why he takes driving so seriously...now. i am sure it is wisdome and responsibility. that and this. . . tee hee hee.
great wolf lodge. this not-so-little gem has a ton of family fun packed into one very large building. while there is loads to do, it was the waterpark we were after--- in all of it's climate controlled glory.
waiting in those lines with just the chance and the quiet to be the four of us; that is when i got the spoiling returned.
