Family Vacation

We have been home from our little vacation for one week and I am just now posting.
We went to Kansas City to the Great Wolf Lodge. We should have known it was going to be a bad idea when the night before we left nobody got much sleep. Mike, Jillian and Hadley all came down with colds the night before we left.

Our plan was to go to church, eat lunch and hit the road. After not sleeping and two girls with runny noses we skipped church. We took our time getting around and headed out around 2pm. The drive there was good. We stopped a few times and both girls slept off and on. After we checked in we were able to meet up with one of my friends and her kiddos.

Here is a pic of the kiddos at Famous Dave's BBQ.
Laken, Hadley, Taylen and Bosten.

After that we called it a night. We tried to get some sleep but a 4-month old and a cold equal sleeping with mom, which equals not much sleep for mom.
We got up, ate breakfast and headed to the water park. The pictures from the water park all turned out very dark. Here is the best one I could find.

This is what Jillian did at the water park.

Hadley seemed to be feeling better and played until lunch. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel for lunch. The booths are in tents. It was decorated nicely.
Here we are in our tent.
Check out mommy's tired eyes.

After a nap we went back to the water park for a little bit and then had dinner. We called it an early night.
Getting ready for bed.

The next morning we got up and Hadley and Mike headed to the water park. They were back very quickly. Hadley got down there and just wanted to sit with Mike. This should have been our first clue that something was wrong. Hadley never wants to just sit :) After being in the room for a little bit she was fast asleep on Mike.We all took a nap. When Hadley woke up she had a fever and wasn't feeling good. That is about where the fun ended. We didn't do much after that. We went to bed early. The next day it was time to head home. Of course Hadley was feeling great then. Here are a few pictures from the lobby of the hotel.

To add to the craziness we were not impressed with the hotel and service we received. I have only heard good things about this hotel so maybe we just got a junky room and the bad housekeeper who thinks nobody ever needs toilet paper or kleenex.
Hopefully our next vacation will go better.
