Travels #3

A Great Wolf Lodge opened up about an hour from us a while ago - maybe 4-5 years ago. We finally tried it out last summer for an overnight - and it was great - at least great for a family with a kid. We went back last February around my daughter’s birthday for another overnight. It was cold out and there was snow on the ground, so it was nice to go play in the water and pretend it was summer. The only thing was that in the summer they have their outside pools open too - and the pool bar - which, of course, wasn’t available in February. Well - our two overnight trips were fun - but too short and very busy - trying to cram everything in. You check in - hang out in the water park all day - go back to the room and change - get some food and go play games - and then the next morning it’s time to check out. You can stay the whole day after checking out, but now you are living out of the trunk of your car and a locker. So this summer - in July - we are going to head back - this time for a couple days. It’s nice having things like this pretty close to us. 

Our next trip is only a couple weeks later - and it’s not pretty close - it’s actually on the other side of the continent and is our big adventure for the year.

Coming next time…

I got a new board! Finally picked up that funboard I’ve been thinking about getting for years now. I’ve been so frustrated with my old board for so long - and getting old - and really needed to make things easier. I kept resisting moving to a bigger board, but finally caved. Plus - all boards are $100 off at WRV - which made it easier to pull the trigger. 7-6 WRV Thruster  High-res

Overslept this morning. I kept having weird dreams. Then I woke up at some point after hearing a weird noise. I think it was a bird outside - or a bunch of birds. It sounded like a strange alarm or something - and I bolted awake - then sat there confused - trying to figure out what happened. Then my mind started running wild - like it does in the middle of the night - and I had a hard time going back to sleep. It also got real hot in the room and when I threw off the covers, my ipad fell off the bed - which added to more confusion. When I woke up this morning it was 20 minutes till I was supposed to be at work. What a great start to the day…
