Ebby Lee’s Great Wolf Lodge Birthday

Earlier this year when we were discussing birthday plans for Ebby Lee’s birthday, she mentioned heading to Great Wolf Lodge.  I jumped on the chance to make this birthday more of an “experience” than a pile of presents.  Yes, ma’am to THAT!  We invited Kensington to join us for the night and GIRL TIME began on Friday.

I grabbed the girls from school a bit early because THAT is a big deal when you’re eight.  🙂

I must tell you our family had never been to Great Wolf Lodge before this little birthday getaway.  I’m not a fan of indoor pools so my thoughts on an indoor water park weren’t so peachy.  But, you guys I was pleasantly surprised!  {Let’s just say-after an hour or so of watching from the sidelines.  I found myself racing up the stairs to ride ALL the slides too.}  We had the BEST time!

First up, I made these two spa appointments at Scoops, the kiddie salon inside Great Wolf Lodge.  They had facials, manicures, and pedicures.  While they were getting pampered, I checked in to our room, unloaded the bags, and took a few pictures for you…

We stayed in one of the Kid Kamp Suites.  It had a queen size bed, twin bunks, and a couch (that pulled out-I believe).

The girls were so excited about this little bunk area.

When I checked in we got this little activity guide that gave us a list of all the things going on inside the hotel.  If we had stayed longer than one night, they might have wanted to do this, but these girls had big agendas for our night away.

I made my way back down to the spa and found them with chocolate masks on their faces!

 A super cute little spa for the kiddos!

These two were big fans of Scoops!  

 See how cute it is?

As soon as the spa time was over, it was WATER PARK TIME!

Remember, I was a total Great Wolf Lodge newbie.  🙂  I packed my computer and had planned on getting tons of work done, but you guys….everything was covered in water!  These two took one look and were OFF!

The weather Friday afternoon was amazing so we got to take full advantage of the outside area as well.

French fries pool side…now that’s my kind of birthday celebration.  🙂

 This was my view for the afternoon.

THIS….I finished Girl, Wash Your Face while they were riding the slides.  SO GOOD!  If you haven’t read it yet, NOW is the time!

As soon as I finished, I made my way over to the girls and took full advantage of all those water slides!  We rode everything over and over again!   Around 8:00 {the slides closed at 9:00} we called it a night, grabbed pizza, and ate in our pajamas in our room.

These girls know how to party!

We slept super late because of ALL THE STAIRS the day before.  #nodoubtsaboutit

Then we made our way to brunch before we had to make it back to McKinney for two volleyball games.  While we were grabbing our food, a group of five characters made their way through the dining room.

Oh, Great Wolf Lodge, you gave us a GREAT day full of birthday memories!

Just a little proof I got to be there too.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!
