Waterpark in January?

We headed north to Williamsburg to visit ... no, not anything historical, just the Great Wolf Lodge. It is a hotel/indoor water park that is an awesome way to spend a few days in January. We had such a fun time! Kate was too little last year to enjoy it, but was pretty brave and quite the independent little fish this year. We invited Hayden's cousin, Scott, to join us and those two boys played themselves into exhaustion for two days. I know that you don't want to see pictures of Cletus and I in our bathing suits, so I'll try to stick with pictures of the kids. They're cuter anyway.
We also headed to Yorktown for a little bit of history. The kids had the most fun, though, with this frozen pond. We don't see that very much 'round these parts (Raleigh). Some of the pictures look a little strange ... like they are standing on water. I mean, unfrozen water. If it looks cold, that's because it WAS! I was a party pooper and stayed in the warm car. Boys don't seem to care about temperature when it comes to playing outside.

Wow, that sounds like a great place to stay. We'll have to remember that lodge.

Those pond pictures are great!! It reminds me of when we lived in Vermont there was a little river behind our house that always froze over and it was so fun to "skate" across!!

We went to Great wolf in April out here we live an hour away. We went with my whole fam it was a blast! It was cold when we went to Yorktown also. So my memories of it are also by car.

I heard Scott had a good time. That really sounds like a fun get-away. I must say I am a little disappointed there are no swimsuit pictures...you could do Sports Illustrated photos??? ha ha ha

Had we known you guys were going too we could have coordinated- we're actually going next week. Funny, because you guys also went to Biltmore in December and we were going to, but changed our plans. We must be on the same wavelength when it comes to vacation planning! Glad you had fun. You'll have to give me the scoop on Yorktown. That frozen lake looks like tons of fun for the kids!!
