where Egan learned to howl…..

Blake had a few vacation days he needed to use, and we wanted to spend some time as a family, so we took a little overnight trip to the GreatWolf Lodge. Blake and I have been before, but Egan had never been to stay overnight. He was so excited.

We got there Monday afternoon and swam for a few hours before having dinner and then got Egan's jammies on him for story time. The were perfectly themed for the lodge too! He loved the carpet in the hotel and as he ran down the hall, he stomped on each kind of animal.

While we were waiting for the clock tower show, Egan spotted the legos. The boy LOVES legos. (Maybe I should say "boys".)

The clock tower show was really cute, and Egan had a blast watching it.

(You'd never know it from his face though.)

He also enjoyed story time and wasn't scared of this large walking wolf that came to visit at the end.

Our room was so much fun! It had a "wolf den" theme" which Egan adored. He pointed out all the different animals painted on the walls.

It even had these cool bunk beds.

The next morning Egan slept in a bit… (thankfully!) and then we went down to do some more swimming. I brought my camera along for part of this.

One of his two favorite things at the water park was this water gun. Here he's shooting Daddy.

His other favorite thing was this blue waterside. He went down it probably 100 times.

This right here is the face of pure delight!

He even got brave and did "no hands".

He also did some really big slides that I was surprised he'd actually do, the wave river (which he called the "crazy river") the wave pool, and this fort which just so happened to have MORE WATER GUNS!

Overall, Egan had so much fun and didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. He may not be quite old enough for everything just yet, but it won't be long before he's climbing the really big slides and riding the tubes.
