A great week!

We had such a great week with Shannon, Jordan, Adam, and Elyse! They came down for their spring break and despite the snow (yes... it snowed here) and cold temperatures, we managed to plan tons of un activities which made for one awesome week!

I love this pic of Elyse- she looks so cute!

Daniel's first official Easter egg hunt! Once he figured out that there was candy in the eggs, the hunt was over. He sat down on the ground and proceeded to eat EVERYTHING in all of the eggs in his basket. He then realized he could not swallow everything he had shoved in his mouth and spit it out. Then he went looking for more eggs only to do the same thing! We got it on video, but I am having a hard time uploading it. We were laughing so hard :)

The highlight of the trip was our visit to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Canada. We spent one night there and two days playing at the amazing indoor water park. There was also a great arcade, craft room, and my favorite, a yummy dinner and breakfast buffet. Adam and Elyse also had their own 'bear den' to sleep in with bunk beds and a private TV and Nintendo system.

Here is a view of the kiddie pool. It was so warm and had slides and toys for toddlers.

It was so steamy in the park, but I tried to get a good shot of the water slides.

Again- my lens was fogged up, but here I am at the wave pool with Daniel and Jordan.

Ready to swim!

The entrance was so cute- they had talking animals to greet you.

Evelyn frequently does that with foods she likes. Gets so much in her mouth at once that she can't swallow or chew any more and spits it all out. Fun! I totally emailed myself the name of that lodge. It sounds like an awesome getaway for a couple of days.
