Well, as I told Mrs. LIAYF and Lukas yesterday, I was pretty sure this was our "Time to use the Wolf", but in good way. To have fun!
That's because the fine folks at Great Wolf Lodge were kind enough to invite us to stay a night at their Grand Mound location on their dime. Hey, no better time to use the wolf than that, right?
|We raced down these numerous times|
Despite his height, he showed absolutely no fear climbing the stairs to repeatedly go tandem in a tube with Mrs. LIAYF or myself on the larger water slides. And, although he was far from tall enough to go on 'The Tornado' which is the signature slide at the facility, If he were I'm pretty sure he would have been the first one up there.
|He likes it here|
Over the course of the two days we were at Great Wolf Lodge, we spent much of our time using ALL of the fun facilities the water park had to offer. Besides the slides both large and small, there was a wave pool (we yelled "Come on Big Wave") , hot tub, and small kid centered water play area which were all very smartly designed.
|Aimed at his dad, of course.|
Although, before our trip Mrs. LIAYF and I weren't familiar with many details about Great Wolf Lodge, I have to say, we left the following day with a great impression of the overall experience. There were many other family centered activities we didn't even get a chance in our short visit to take advantage of, like the magic quest theme that a ton of kids were participating in. Maybe next time, since we will certainly be returning for another visit. Lukas' parting words: "I wish we could stay here forever".
So, we are all pretty happy that it was Time to Use the Wolf!
