We went to Kansas City for two nights and stayed at The Great Wolf Lodge. It's the COOLEST place for children! It is a kid centered hotel and indoor water park. It's pretty incredible! It is themed around wolves and bears and all things critters, so it was right up Levi's alley. He had an absolute blast, and we are so glad we took him! He really deserved this little trip.
The night we arrived, the park was closed, but he peeked in and was giddy with excitement!
We hit the ground running the next day and swam, swam, swam!
The rooms are so neat. They are a child's dream! We had a camping themed room, and Levi had his own little "room". Fun!
We dined in the Critter Cafe in the lodge for lunch one day, and with a kids meal, they get wolf ears and a tail. What fun! Levi was OBSESSED with his.
The lodge has all kinds of things for kids to do: the water park, (of course), a giant game room/arcade (think Chuck E Cheese), crafts and scheduled activities each day, a wolf walk every morning, and then story time at the clock tower each night. Story time is cute because the kids come down in their jammies. Levi refused to wear his, though. HA!
Oh, and there is a treat shop with ice cream and other homemade goodies. Yummy!
Now, if you have a little boy, you MUST MUST MUST go to the T Rex restaurant. I know several cities have them, but we had never been to one. Think Rainforest Cafe, but dinosaur version. Levi was in heaven.
It was really awesome. Husby and I had as much fun as Weebie!
There is even an area where the kids can excavate fossils! :)
We had a great time, and we can't wait to go back when Ezra gets a little bigger!
