Great Wolf Lodge

After deciding that we all didn't have time to make it all the way to Arkansas and back in 4 days, we decided to meet Grandma and Grandpa in Kansas City for one last summer fling. Uncle Brian and Brenna were able to join the girls and I (Annie). Unfortunately, Jeff had to stay home and work :( As you can see by the photos, the girls and the grown-ups had a great time. It took Kerstin a little bit for her to decide she wanted to go down the tube slides. Before the weekend was over, the 3 girls had mastered the very dark and scary raft ride. (Ok - Annie was the only one who really thought it was scary).

We had such a fun time swimming, sliding, playing games, eating, and just hanging out together. We also were able to do some shopping at the new Legends mall. Fun! We even had supper at the amazing T-Rex restaurant (think Rain Forest Cafe, except prehistoric).

As an added bonus, the girls get to spend the next week in Arkansas with Grandma and Grandpa! I have to go back to work this week at my new school, so I knew I would be very busy. Jeff is working, too, so it worked out great for Grandma and Grandpa to take them back to Arkansas. We miss them already!! It sounds like they are having fun hanging out at the lake, sewing, and keeping G and G VERY busy! It is back to school for them on the 28th, so they better enjoy the fun while they can.

Thanks for checking on us! Have a blessed day!

What an honor to make the blog.

I feel like I am SOMEBODY now.

Brenna and I had fun hanging out in KC.
Thanks again,

Looks like a lot of fun in KC, and bet G&G Gnuse are as busy now as G&G Leaf are in Florida! :) Thanks for sharing the fun with us! Love to all -

Wow, Great Wolf Lodge and a week at your Granparents. You guys will REALLY be spoiled when your mom and dad get you back! It's all good! Loved the pictures. Looks like everyone was having a great time. I'm with Annie, it is more than a little creepy to be sliding in those tubes in the dark! Saw your Aunt Ruth today! :) Have a good one!
