Right before Christmas, Kevin and I took the kids to Great Wolf Lodge. It was a great way to get away with them before the new baby comes, and it was a great way to get me to slow down and not worry about everything I thought HAD to get done for the holidays.
I admit, it is a cheesy place. But it's supposed to be. It's for the kids to have fun and the parents to have fun watching them. That's exactly what we did.
I got my picture of the kids with Santa, and I didn't have to fight the mall to do it.
I got my Christmastime snowfall, and I didn't even have to wear a coat.
I got my time with my family, away from any schedules or hurry.
I got a lovely vacation only a couple of hours from home, and I got to don a swimsuit while 35 weeks pregnant. Mmmmmm, belly.
It was so very lovely. Honestly, it was a little magical. I think we could add it to the "tradition" list with just a little coaxing.
And no, Great Wolf Lodge did not compensate me for this post. They did send me a coupon code after I badgered them on Twitter endlessly. And we did go there on their dime in April which was also lovely, but not what this post was about. So there.

Can you share said coupon code? Because hubby and I were JUST talking about making that place our vacation spot this year! His brother takes their family there almost every year and their kids love it, too.

I'll have to look that place up. I've never heard of it. And how nice to not have to battle crowds for Santa's attention!

I've SO been wanting to go there! Looks like a blast. And kudos to you for wearing a bathing suit. I've not had to don a bathing suit with preggo-belly because my first trimester has always been in summer. Well, I guess that was preggo-pudgy.

Thank you very much for the Tips with fresh flowers presented on your site! I did as it is written there and the flowers that my beloved presented me are still alive! And besides now I know the meaning of all the flowers! And I am even thinking of becoming a florist myself! Thank you, studioflorist.com!
