January is a busy month for my family. We have 5 birthdays in the month of January. My girls have a 7 year age difference with birthdays 2 weeks apart. This year I opted out of having traditional birthday parties and convinced #boothang that we should take the girls to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Ontario. While the girls have been before with their grandparents, this was our first time as a family. I must admit I think deep down I was more excited than the girls! A chance to relax, rest, and enjoy all the amenities that the indoor water park resort had to offer--who could ask for anything more?
We headed straight to our suite to unload our things, after we received our wristbands and meal vouchers. Then it was straight to the water park from there. Slides of all sizes and speeds are available for the adventurous and those who like to play it safe. We enjoyed a few family slides together, but had to convince our youngest that she could handle it. Wolly mammoth, Vortex and Niagara rapids run were some of my personal favourites. Through all the screams and my laughter, she survived and now she can go and brag to all her kindergarten friends. Other than the slides, we relaxed in the lazy river and jumped in some waves at the wave pool.
Of course all this family fun time can make everyone hungry, so off we went to get some eats. I'm so glad that we purchased a meal plan and didn’t have to worry about leaving to go leave the lodge to get food. Nice and convenient! This was a great way to spend quality family time, celebrate life, and enjoy a taste of summer-like feeling indoors (especially with the winter we've been having). The Knights will definitely be back. Hopefully with a few friends next time.
