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.

The kids grow up fast don't they!

Baby M turned 18 months old in Feb. Which was the accepting age to the daycare in Little K's school. So last Monday was his first day! 

This makes it easier for us too. Both cuties in one place. Easy drop/pickup.


And it's also so much fun for them walking in to class together in the mornings. 


I was a little worried for him, being the youngest in the class... but I had nothing to worry about at all. Not one tear from this big boy, all week! He was so comfortable being there. He loves all the teachers, and they love him. He is doing soo well and I already see his little mind expanding and learning soo much all in one week!

So proud of this independent little boy! 


 
Yesterday Mr K passed the winter swimming lessons. I'm so impressed at how far he has come after 2 swim seasons. He loves the water. It's an amazing feeling watching these little ones really enjoy activities.



 This big boy is also doing great with his piano lessons. He's memorized 2 songs, yay!! 



 These kiddos melt my heart daily! And they are growing up so fast. Baby M is learning new words and Mr K is asking allll the questions. 

Next week is March Break! We are excited to have some water fun!

February Family day and birthdays!

We had a fun filled February. Last weekend was family day long weekend. 


First stop was Ripley's Aquarium 

Both kids absolutely loved it. 




 

We were up early that day and arrived early. It was great because it wasn't too busy. The kids were soo interested and baby M was soo excited running around and seeing the aquarium for the first time. 

At the end of the walk through the kids got to pick some souvenirs. They loved that part too ha!

We then went to lakeshore for lunch! One of our favorite restaurants. The weather was great too for a nice walk.


  


 Family day long weekend was also the perfect weekend for my sister to do her baby's gender reveal!!!!! Eeeee I had the envelope! I brought it to the baker Fabulous Cakes and he made this awesome cake! 


And!!! It's a girl!  We are beyond excited! 


A fun day with family. 
 

Cousin love! 

 


 The fun continued during the week! 
Birthdays!!!!


My husband and my niece share the same birthday! 



 We had a yummy lobster dinner and cake! The kids loved putting dads gift in a minion bag. Little k wanted to surprise daddy as we walked in the door, so we turned off all the lights and surprised him haha. 


Saturday night we then celebrated my nieces birthday. She's 16! Where does the time go!! 


We had a great night! 

Then yesterday was one of our good friends 6th birthday!
