We hopped on a plane early Thursday morning and spent a fun Thanksgiving at Great Wolf Lodge.
Ro and Ree were thrilled to once again stay in a cute room with built-in kid log cabin and bunk beds.
And they were even happier to hear that MagiQuest (the wand-based, interactive fantasy game that’s integrated all throughout the lodge) had just rolled out a new game. Our two little Magi (Ree in teal and Ro in pink stripes) wasted no time embarking on the newest adventure ShadowQuest.
TubaDad was an excellent quest assistant. He covered way more miles than I did (the new game runs you around for a total of 10 miles if you make it to the end). But eventually even he plopped down in the lobby and let the girls continue on their own (I spied him from the overhead bridge):
Thanksgiving dinner at Great Wolf was great. I can’t even imagine how many pounds of potatoes they went through keeping this full buffet going all day from lunchtime till 8pm. We were all quite happy with our food. They had something for everyone -- SO apparent if you contrast Ro’s fruit-and-sushi plate with my hand-carved prime rib plate. Heh:
The water park is always a hit. This year Ree (blue) and Ro (fuschia) were tall enough to go down any of the hair-raising slides, but still spent most of their time in the wave pool, just like in past years:
A little tip for you if you spend time at the Wolf: the Critter bar can set you up with kid hot chocolates and extra special grown-up hot chocolates (hello Baileys!) in to-go cups that you can bring out to the lobby to enjoy by the fire. Oh yeah!
Another tip: the pumpkie pie fudge they make onsite is beyond divine. Oh My Word. If anyone has a recipe for this stuff, please share:
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday:
PS: On our way back to the airport we said hello to some of our fave cuties. Do these little ladies look familiar?
