After our trip to The African Wildlife Safari Park, we headed to Sandusky to Great Wolf Lodge. We were so excited to go. First time taking the kids to a water park, first time having the little ones sleep in a hotel, etc. We got there about 1pm and checked in. Thanks to some friends, I had heard that if they aren't at capacity, your room could be upgraded if you just ask. So we sat down and waited and let Sean do the talking.
After lunch, we went to our room and changed for the water park. Our room was on the same floor as the water park and it was so convenient for us to run to the room if we needed to. I didn't get any pictures the first day while we were swimming (I wish I did). The kids started out nervous nellies in the baby area and then became full on adventurous "swimmers" wanting to go on the slides, etc.

The next morning, we woke up and had breakfast in the Lumber Jack's Shanty.
After breakfast, we checked out and went back to swim (could still use the swim park all day if we wanted to).
The big yellow and green slide. Owen loved it and kept saying "again, again"
Coming down off the slide.
Quinlin did the yellow one once, and stuck to the little blue one, where one of us could be there to catch her.
Owen a little scared about something...
Did I mentioned Hunter met a girl the first day and basically disappeared as he hung with her the whole time? Her name- Joanna. She introduced herself to me by extending her hand and then hugging me. It was hilarious. I wasn't quite prepared to meet girls yet. Ha!
And the car ride home. Both exhausted. win win!
We will definitely go back. We picked the perfect time to go as it wasn't crowded at all. Next time, I will remember my hair straightener... not sure why I thought I would go to a water park and keep my hair dry? It was a frizzy crazy mess but luckily I didn't know anyone so who really cared. We also could have brought our own snacks or ventured out to the local restaurants, but convenience alone made it enjoyable to just stay at the resort. Plus- it was more affordable then we thought. Great time and eager to return!
