Just a little get-away.

Doug was on vacation all this week so we decided to take a little drive up to the Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio. 
 
 
 
Behind that rustic exterior lies an enormous indoor waterpark, arcade, bowling alley, and they're even working on an indoor mini-golf.   
 
But I'm pretty sure Kerry's favorite thing was the magiquest game.

 
 
She was in awe of the fact that the "real" purple wand she picked out actually made the stars in the ceiling light up, treasure chests open, and suits of armor talk.  




Oh my goodness, was she loving it!  With this game you go on "quests" to find certain objects which are spread throughout three floors of the lodge.  And, of course, she had to complete ALL of the quests so she could collect all of the runes.  I love that she likes to follow through with what she starts (most of the time, at least) but boy were we worn out after zig-zagging all over three floors...for each quest...for a couple of hours. 
 

 
Also included in the "Paw-Pass", Kerry got to pick out a toy animal that she got to personally stuff.  She named her new wolf friend "Pink". 


She also got to bowl at "Ten Paw Alley" which had smaller lanes and 5 pound bowling balls...just perfect for the littler ones!
 


After she bowled she spent some time at the arcade and won a few little prizes.



 
But the main event was the water park.  We spent plenty of time in the wave pool, the lazy river, and the waterslides. 
 
Last year at Disneyworld she would not ride any of the water slides so she shocked me be riding all of the "kiddie" slides and she even rode this big one with us several times. 


She got a kick out if the fact that it spins you around a few times then "flushes" you down.
 

 
And it had a nice splash at the end.
 
She also enjoyed this challenging little obstacle course.
 





She was one happy, water-logged little girl by the time we left for home.
 

 
 

 
 Not to mention, tired.
