Great Wolf Lodge

Every year, Edward Jones has their summer regional meeting in June. This year we lucked out. It was at the Great Wolf Lodge this past weekend in Grapevine, just a short 30 minute drive for us. What a perfect year for us not to have to take a road trip to Houston, Austin or San Antonio where the meetings are usually held! Plus the Great Wolf Lodge was a great place to go with young kids. It's all about them where everything is kid centered and family friendly. The indoor water park was complete with a "little kid" area (perfect for our guys), a wave pool, lazy river, regular swimming pool and several large water slides for the adults. We decided to go in a day early and take advantage since this was our last "vacation" before baby girl arrives.

The boys looking out at the indoor water park while Daddy got us checked in. They couldn't wait to partake in the fun!

Jacob posing with the Wolf. Luke was happy to watch from afar in Daddy's arms. :)

Suited up and ready to go

Standing in front of the biggest attraction.

Every 4-5 minutes 1000 gallons of water dump out from the huge bucket at the top.

The boys waiting in line for the little kid water slides

And yes, even sweet Luke had his fun. He wasn't hesitant at all to try the slides. Watching his big brother do it, always makes it easier. Jacob is on the left and Luke is on the right.

Here is Jacob coming down the bigger, blue slide

And Lukie too (behind the arm)

Plotting their next plan- the blue or yellow slide, which will it be??

Watching one of the character shows. They watched this same show every morning at 9 and needless to say, I had those silly songs stuck in my head all day long! :)

The boys with Abby, one of the friends that Jacob met and talked about nonstop. Her mom is also a Jones broker. He has already asked for me to "text her mom and make plans for a playdate"!

Sweet boy

Having some down time after a full day of swimming


  1. Oh what fun!! I'm glad you guys had a blast! The water slides look like fun - I'm glad the boys enjoyed them and weren't scared! That's too funny about Jacob telling you to text her mom for a playdate! haha

  2. I have heard about that place and it looks/sounds amazing! So perfect for the boys! We are definitely going to have to check it out one of these days. And I have to say, Jim's company does the coolest trips!

  3. Looks like the boys had a wonderful time and I am just chortling over the texting for a playdate already!! LOL!

  4. Oh. My. Goodness. Would you look at that place? Looks like heaven for the kids! And look at Jacob, hitting it off with the ladies and planning a play date already! Too funny!

  5. That looks like such a fun little getaway. I am impressed with both Jacob's and Luke's willingness to go down those big slides. I'm so glad you guys got to have fun before Sarah gets here!
