Wolf tails, wands, and spray tans

The little purse camera is failing. Have I dropped it one too many times? Is it just completely overwhelmed by the weird orangish yellow lighting in this wolf’s den? Have some hidden internal settings been screwed up by tiny fingers without my knowledge? Every snap looks like we all just got spray-tans at the spa. Whatev… I fixed those that could be easily fixed, but some are just going to stay odd.

I like the look of wolf tails and wand belts.IMG_1933LR-2

Or wands and pajamas. Or wands and costumes. Or wands and puppets. It’s all good. And the funny thing is that as weird as Ro and Ree’s get-ups are, they are guaranteed to be topped by someone else walking these halls.IMG_1899LR-2IMG_1908LRIMG_1919LR-3IMG_1928LR-4

See, I did set up the mini tripod and sneak in one family photo. :)

We hardly ever leave the room until lunchtime. That’s just the way we roll on vacation (as anyone who’s travelled with us and wanted to meet for brekkie can confirm). All meals are at weird times, we stay up until 10 or 11pm, sleep in till 8:30 or later, have breakfast in bed, then laze around and talk, sing (not me, don’t worry), read, play on computers or iPads, watch tv. It works for us.IMG_1942LR

The girls have completed all of the MagiQuest wand quests and adventures and moved on to compass quests. If this doesn’t make any sense to you, I’d wager you haven’t visited a Great Wolf Lodge with kiddos lately:IMG_1948LR-3IMG_1958LRIMG_1962LR

Carry on young Magi.

PS: Since cutting Ree’s hair we don’t get the “are they twins?!” question anymore. Like ever. And we used to hear it about every 20 minutes. Does that few inches of hair really make that much of a difference? It’s hard for me to tell since I always thought they looked so different from each other.

  2. I get the "are they twins" question all the time and they are 2 1/2 years apart, don't look anything alike, have completely different shaped bodies, and are different height & weight. BUT, their hair is close to the same length in back. It comes down to the hair.

  3. It is definitely the hair. For some reason, it is hard for people to believe that twins could have different hair! Gasp! Ha! I have also found that folks tend to ask less questions about children in general, the older the kids get. I have even noticed it with Marin and he's barely 3. We used to get asked a lot of questions about him (age, name, etc) when he was a baby.

  4. So, our family was at the GWl and I saw Tubadad and Ree, playing the quest game. My son was mezmorized by Ree's focus so we started his game after we had dinner. I would have said hello but felt blog-stalkerish and couldn't do it. I did, however, tell everyone I was with how I followed your blog!

    Ree actually looks a couple years younger than Ro with the shorter hair..

    1. Funny, I wonder if that's it! When we were in line for one of the quests tonight a little girl was talking to Ro and Ree about how old they were and looked at them really carefully (scrutinizing hard) and finally said "yep, they are twins!"

  6. Awesome! I like how you vacation. I am so up tight, I feel like I have to be doing something every moment and then I need a vacay from my vacay!

    1. Hm, we don't but I wonder what I'd have to bribe TD with to wear one of the girls'? LOL.

  8. I think it also could be that Ro looks taller than Ree in many of these pictures so people might assume that she is older and therefore, taller. Looks like a fun place!

  9. Sounds like you guys are having a blast!

    We get the twins question ALL THE TIME. Number one question, which is so funny to me, cause isn't it obvious? I keep saying I am going to answer no, they aren't even related, next time we are asked ;-)

  10. Sounds like the perfect vacay! Lazy, slow mornings then off for hours of fun!

    Love all the fun outfits your kiddos put together. Packing for you must be quite a feat!!

    I'd wager to guess that the hair does make a big difference. Now, whenever I want to tell who's who I immediately look for hair as I was never good with their faces....as you know! :o)

    When is your next GWL adventure??? Red rover, red rover.... :o)

  11. I don't know but all I could think as I was looking at the pics was how absolutely adorable her hair looks!

  12. We definitely could vacation together! We are on the same schedule.

    I'm laughing that you don't get the, "Are they twins?" question any more. Your girls couldn't look any more alike.
