Great Wolf Lodge

We took the kids to the Great Wolf Lodge a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! It's a big indoor water park just south of Olympia and I've been wanting to go ever since I heard about it. We were lucky enough to get a gift card from Janet and Bill for Christmas and finally were able to find a weekend to get away. The kids had a lot of fun playing in the pool, but they were pretty scared of any of the waterslides and the wave pool. I really wanted them to go down at least one waterslide, but it just didn't happen. They also have this game there called Magi Quest. I don't know how to describe it, but you go all over the hotel and find different things and complete these "quests". Alexis and Chris spend quite awhile our second day there working on this. Here's some pictures from our weekend!

This 1000 gallon bucket dumped water about every 5 minutes on the water fort area.
On a quest. You point this magic wand at different things in the hotel and get clues of where to go next to complete your quest.

Alexis in the wave pool - she only liked it when the waves weren't on!

Luke on the squirting jet skis. He could have spent all day on these and he called them squirting camels!
