A Great Wolf Day


Have one. That's the message Great Wolf Lodge tries to ingrain into your brain.

We're back from our mini-vacation, and it was nice to get away. I think my favorite part, though, was not Great Wolf Lodge. It was the outdoor shopping center nearby where we spent time both days we were there.

My friend and I took our kids to this Disney-esque dinosaur restaurant called T-Rex Cafe Saturday night. It was filled with oversized animatronic dinosaurs that howled and moved. You just couldn't stop looking around. It was super cool, if completely manufactured and expensive.

Yesterday, the seven of us ate lunch at a different, more adult restaurant in this same outdoor mall. We sat outside in the sun. This was maybe my favorite part of the weekend.

The swimming was fun, too, of course, especially the giant water slides that Rye got to go on with us. The two of us only fell off once -- and lost our sunglasses once -- so that was pretty good!

Today was back to the same old routine of work and battling traffic and stopping at Hy-Vee on the way home.

I'd have traded it for another Great Wolf day.

It was a great weekend. Thanks all again.

So we had the manufactured fun this weekend - that's ok. It's all natural next year.

It was nice to decompress today.
