Vacation, Day Two

I’m writing this at the end of our second day of fun at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls. Thoroughly exhausted, my wife and I are praying to the wolf spirit that the boys sleep through the night! The Goon (age 3) was up for a few hours last night (midnight to 3 am or so) insisting that he needed to go home as he couldn’t sleep here. Funny, as I would have pegged him as the world traveller. Instead, he is exhibiting some serious homebody tendencies.

I am pretty water logged- we were there when they opened the water park doors at 9 am and were in and out of the water most of the day. The MagiQuest activity was a nice way to break up the soakings. It also puts the day to sleep pretty well- nothing like climbing all over 4 wings on 2 different floors to wear everyone out!

Sadly, the one supply that we are lacking in the mobile pantry we brought from Syracuse is beer. I’ve been a good Dad today- good enough, I think, to splurge on a $6 can of beer! (Note for next year- bring beer from home! These resort prices are crazy!)
