We love our summer tradition with the Horton's; 24 hours at Great Wolf Lodge! This summer we had to reschedule the date 2 different times, which had us on our 3rd try and the timing was perfect. Tanna and I see each other often, but it's never enough time for everything we want to talk about. So 24 hours was a great amount of time (especially since we didn't waste much of that time sleeping, you will read all about it shortly). I am so thankful for this friend of mine, there's just not many like her.
We met for lunch at Uncle Julios and then headed over to GWL! The kids went down the slides time after time, for hours! They always love the water park so much!
We started winding the kids down about 10:00. We turned the air down and quickly realized the smell in the room was just terrible. I called and asked someone to come check it out...they came and sprayed febreeze or something on the vent and left. About 10 minutes later the smell was back, in full force. I told Tanna that I was not going to be able to sleep in there (not dramatic, at all)...we still tried. She was starting to get an asthma attack going on, rash or something and it was just not good. A few of the kids were sleeping, a few of them were coughing because of the smell, and we just couldn't deal with it anymore. Think sewage smell, that bad. All that to say, they finally let us move, yes us move, we moved 5 kids and all the stuff ourselves in the middle of the night. It was a crazy mess. Thank goodness Tanna remembers to get a pic of crazy things like this so we can remember, aren't we just too cute?! They ended up moving us to the biggest room in the hotel, it was nice and roomy. But now we were wide awake, and HUNGRY!
So what do you do in the middle of the night when you are hungry?! You get Whataburger! Valet was obviously closed, but Tanna managed to find her car in the dark parking lot and headed right over to pick up this deliciousness! YUM! I do not think my eyes have ever been open at this time of night, 2:30 am, oh my! I do have to say this was still so much fun!
Everyone woke up about 9:00 am. The kids scarfed down a donut and we headed back to the water park for more fun!
And then we checked out, hugged bye and said "until next time!"
