Great Wolf Lodge

For Hudson’s birthday we made our way down to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas.  This was our fourth visit to Great Wolf and it’s something that our family looks forward to each year.  But before we arrived at the hotel we had to stop at the American Girl store in Dallas.  Santa brought Ella her first AG doll and we wanted to get her ears pierced!

The kids were so anxious to swim and play so our American Girl experience was short lived.  As soon as we checked in we hit up the water park:

This year was the first year that we’ve played the Magic Quest game throughout the hotel and had a lot of fun with it.  You purchase wands that activate pictures and treasures within the hotel.  The guide sends you on sort of a treasure hunt to find specific items — the kids really enjoyed it.

We also did the story time in the lobby in our pajamas:

On Hudson’s birthday we let him open up his gift, we ate a big breakfast, and then hit up the water park for a good portion of the day.

    We were thinking of doing this for Caroline’s birthday. Did you stay 1 or 2 nights? Trying to figure out how much time you need there. Thanks for any tips!
