Fall Break @ the GREAT Wolf Lodge

Fall Break 2013
Began with a stop at our very favorite ice cream joint...Coldstone
Yes, we go "Ape" over this place!
Ummm....cake batter with brownie and chocolate with Reeses.
And then for dinner, Mommy's all time Fave...NAAN.
Oh Tuna Tower how I love thee.
My sister Kim and nephew Mason met us there for dinner.
Me and my girlies
Arrival at GREAT WOLF LODGE in Grapevine, TX
totally reminded me of Disney's Wilderness Lodge 
This place gets the THUMBS UP!
off to our room!
Hotel rooms always bring such fun for the kids
sharing a bed = bonding at its best
"Face Timing" Romey with Mrs. Fletcher
Our KidCabin Suite - miniature log cabin for kids sleeping quarters
(now this is a 1st for the Ruley gang!)
TV in the Kids' Cabin...O Happy Day!
Time to experience the watermark for Abby, Ella & Owen's 1st time!
(Will came with Dalten last year)
Dad's ready to rock this place! 
Slides everywhere you look!
One of the highlights of the watermark...
1,000 gallon SPLASH!!*
Trick or Treatin' at the Lodge
(Will in his make-shift costume; tried to tell him to bring one, but he wouldn't. Then, once he realized he was missing out on candy, he jimmy rigged one at the last minute)
Uncle Si & Dorothy :-)
(yes - Ella's red as a tomato...I made her stop & take a pic w/ this cute dude)
Sleeping arrangements
Poor lil' bro man...didn't even get a bed. Big Bro zzzz'ng away.
The slides were simply EPIC! Seriously, fantabulous FUN!!!
"Howlin' Tornado" had us at Hello!
LOVED seeing these two have a blast together!
Wave Pool
Breakfast at the Lodge
Abby used her own money to buy this $6 Frap our last's such a novelty to a 7th grader!
Stopped by the Gaylord Texan on way out...gorgeous joint!
Maybe next time? :-)
Definitely one of our BEST Family Fall Break Trips thankful for the time to spend together making memories.
