This last weekend we had a mini vacation at "the best place, ever", according to my daughter. She will tell anyone who asks that she wants to go "for 18 days next time, not a measly 1 day".
It had a little something for everyone in the family... even our son, who is scared out of his mind of standing water. That big splashing bucket pictured above didn't bother him, but he wouldn't even set foot in the kiddie splash area. He's a crazy boy, I tell you.
If you're in Washington State and lamenting all the rain and grey, you should schedule yourself a visit at Great Wolf. It's not far from Seattle and it's perfect for enjoying some water fun in the winter. I know it's going to be our go-to winter mini vacation spot when we just need some family time and fun!
