Great Wolf Lodge Niagara

We had an amazing weekend at Great Wolf Lodge!




This was our first time there. We heard great reviews from family and friends so we now know why! It's so much fun!

We booked for 2 nights, 1 paw pass ($64) and the meal package that was an extra $125 for our family. 



Hmm where to begin! 

Check in is at 4pm but you can get there earlier at 1pm to enjoy the water park. So we did that. Although without a room we needed to get a locker in the water park for all our clothes/shoes/purse. 
That was fine tho. We then spent 4 hours splashing around. (We ate lunch before getting there so our tummies were full) 


We went on water slides and spent a lot of time in the pool and wave pool, ohh and we loved the lazy river too!

 Since we had the food package we went to our room washed up quickly and went to the buffet dinner. Which had everything! Ribs, chicken, pasta, chilli, fries, pizza, the list goes on. Yummy  dessert too. 


Although the water park is open 9am-9pm , we spent the evening going through the paw pass items, spent time in the arcade and had fun with story time and dance party in the lobby!

Story time was really cute and interactive for the kids. 


The dance party too, baby M was busting his moves haha



The paw pass was really neat. Little K loved going around crossing off the items on the pass. 

Like making a stuffy. You can pick which stuffy you like and stuff it! We got a dragon of course. Little K stepped on the peddle to stuff it! Funnier when he stepped on the peddle when she was done and all the fluff went flying in her face. Oops
They fell in love with this dragon, 
Which we brought around with us everywhere after that! 


Oh the ears is one item too, which I wore the whole weekend.



 They also got a wand for the magi quest game. 


Which they loved. Walking around the lodge opening treasure or pointing at a painting that came to life. 2 floors of interactive fun with that wand. 


They also got another gift and they chose  light up sunglasses, with the paw pass they got a fudge bar, 20 credits for the arcade, 2 bowling games and some crafts in  the cub house and a 5x7 photo. 

My boys loved the arcade, of course! We spent hours each day in there. Haha

Ok fine, I love the arcades too ha! 








 We got the kid camp room with bunk beds. 

The kids had their own tv they watched from the bunks. 

The room was nice, clean and comfy. 

We brought some snacks and water from home so we could have snacks in the evening when we were back in our room. 


The next day we used our meal plan for the breakfast buffet. It was a little busy, more than the dinner buffet so the line was a bit long for impatient kids. The lunch was good, we got chicken fingers, hotdogs and burgers and brought it back to our room after the morning swim.


 The last dinner we had there we wanted to make the most of our evening and not spend much time in the buffet. So we ordered a pizza and brought it back to our room to eat before heading out to the evening events. They pretty much have all that you need there. Prices are pretty good I think. Not overpriced. They had a good cafe too for that much needed latte us parents need. 

We saw others go out and bring back Tim hortons coffee and donuts , it's just around the corner. As are other restaurants /fast food. But it was freeezing so we loved that we could just stay in the lodge and have everything we need. 

Sunday morning after breakfast we also spent some time winding down at the cubs corner. Kids colored and played.




 We called ourselves the Wolfpack all weekend and we had a blast.

Saturday night was our date night. 

We went to a delicious restaurant in our area.  We absolutely loved it! 
Date nights are my favorite! I love dressing up and heading out, enjoying a calm long meal out with my man. 

We had wine, appetizers, a 40 oz steak! Yup I said 40oz!!! Picture below! And delicious  desserts! We talked and ate and drank and talked and ate some more. Haha. 



 


 
 





 A really great place. Can't wait to go back! 

My brother, sister in law and family babysat. The kids had a blast!!


Sunday was a snow storm, but a perfect day to be out in the snow and go to the winterfest! 


 


 

 

It was a great Valentine's Day weekend! We can't wait for next weekend! Family day long weekend! 
 
Have a great week friends!

Just the beginning ...

Our new year began with the flu. Yup. The first week of the new year my little guys were off and on sick with the flu. 

We spent a few extra days at home getting better.

The past few weeks felt really chaotic and busy. Back to school, kids under the weather, everyone trying to get back into the grove of things, trying to work on my New Years resolutions.... The best advice that was ever given to me, was to be 'gentle' with yourself when you are feeling overwhelmed. 
So I did just that. I took things day by day and told myself that my "NEW YEAR" resolutions will just begin a few weeks in. No biggie. That made all the difference. It took a load off my shoulders. We all got better and a little bit more organized :) and I'm slowly trying to get to those goals

 
The kids have a few 2017 goals of their own :) 

Little K has swimming lessons and piano lessons.  Which he is enjoying. 


Little K had a great first week back to school. He wrote me a note yesterday and it just melted my heart. I put it up at my desk at work :)

Baby M just got over an ear infection and had a few cranky days :( today he's feeling much better. In a few months he will be starting a new daycare which I think will be great for him. He is one busy little boy! Ha! 


We have so many exciting goals to work towards in 2017. 

What are your new year goals?

Have a great weekend friends!
