As a belated birthday present to my girls (their birthdays were both the third week of May), we took them to the Great Wolf Lodge, a waterpark/resort hotel in Sandusky, Ohio.
I admit, this isn't really my idea of a good time: donning a bathing suit and sharing space with a hundred or so other people and their wide variety of body parts that can be described in a vast array of words that end in "y" (pasty, jiggly, hairy, saggy), and sharing a host of other things that come with sharing gallons of water with said people.
But, ah! the things we will do for our children!
Families who have sled dogs - or any animals - make a lot of sacrifices to have them. We can't take off on a Disney or Virginia Beach vacation like other families. We have animals that depend on us, 365 days a year.
But one night and two days...we could do that. The girls deserve it.
Here are some photos from the Great Wolf Lodge.
