snow. again.

February is the longest shortest month of the year. That is why February is when we head to the Great Wolf Lodge. We just got back yesterday from our three days of water park fun. The kids really were great and we all had a blast. It is so nice to just get out of town every now and again.

I did have to go and get a new swimsuit before we went because I was bloated like a dead cow laying in a creek for a week. But, it's not like I was headed to the Riviera, all of the women were moms who were pasty white from being inside all winter.

Jellybean was her usual brave self and went down all of the water slides. Chowder went with her down the really big ones with the rafts. She had a great time. The Meatball is much simpler in his tastes. He has no interest in getting his face in the water. He stayed the whole time in the smaller pool with the little slides just paddling around happy as can be. It took Ladybug two days before she was not terrified to even put her toes in the water. But once she got past her apprehension she had a great time splashing around. Porkchop happily swung from one activity to the next, though he didn't like the bigger slides. Skaterboy spent most of his time in the arcade, but he peaked into the waterpark a couple of times.

The biggest problem was sleep. The beds were awful! I may as well been sleeping on the floor. And Ladybug just wouldn't settle down. So, we are taking today as a lay around day.

Here is what life is like in a hotel room with the Cakes family.

Sounds like fun. I really and honestly don't know HOW you do it. My three exhust me all day long. We have a indoor water park near us, friends wanted us to go, but i just can't make myself agree, and take two 4 yr olds and a 21m old. My baby LOVES the water and cries if we get her out, even if her lips are blue.
Oh and my dh was doing that with my twins with the bed, you know what happend. no broken bones, but i now have a bed held up by cinder blocks! :0

Crazy, Cakey family, LOVE it!
Sounds fun but not very relaxing which I guess sums up a family holiday.
