Great Wolf Lodge

We just got back from visiting Great Wolf Lodge, an indoor water park and lodge geared for kids.  While it's odd to have an *indoor* water park in Southern California, we thought we would give it a try.  Violet had a blast.

She got to sleep in a bunk bed in her "wolf den".

We got mommy and me pedicures at an ice cream themed spa in the hotel.

Violet did a digital scavenger hunt where the clues were triggered by internal components in her stuff animal from the lodge.

We all played at the 24 hour arcade:

The games required "paw points" to play.  And the unclear exchange rate on dollars for paw points kept you from realizing how much you were spending.

Violet continues her swim meets.  She can swim all four major strokes now although I thought she wouldn't make it across with breast stroke.

Soccer fun

Violet recently finished her winter soccer season.  The girls got to make their own pizzas at a pizza parlor afterward.

Recently Violet got to meet Anna from Frozen at a special event at a candy shop.
