The Rules

Rules for enjoying Fall Break at Great Wolf Lodge and Indoor Water Park in Texas:

Rule #1: When you invite your mother to go with your family, since your husband can't go (pesky darn radiation treatments ....) make sure she actually realizes you are staying three days, and not two. Otherwise there might possibly be a clean underwear dilemma.

Rule #2: There is no graceful, lady-like way for climbing into the back half of a two-person float tube. Just spread your legs, pull down your swimsuit, go for it and enjoy yourself without shame.

Rule #3: When your brother-in-law climbs the stairs to ride the same toilet-bowl slide that you are already in line for, and he's four or five people behind you, do not turn around and say "Hey, good looking" unless you want the gentleman in between you to assume you are talking to him. (Funnily enough, he didn't appear to know whether to be flattered, or horrified.)

We have 48 more hours to go .... I'm sure plenty more rules will be forthcoming.

Sounds like fun! I've seen their commercials, but never been. Enjoy the rest of your time there.

LOL - sounds fun! We are going to be at Great Wolf in TX as well, but not until Sunday. (If you see the frazzled Mom with three hyperactive boys - that would be me.)

Whoa - I'm impressed!!! They just opened one of these in Washington, about an hour south of us, and when I saw the room prices....well, needless to say, we've driven by but have never been in!! Looks like a lot of fun, though, on the website! Enjoy!

Hope you are having a great trip! We go to the Gaylord (across the street) every year and are thinking about hitting the Lodge instead. Can't wait to hear how you liked it!

Rarely post, but I read your blog every single day!

We have been to the GWL twice.

Did you play MagicQuest? It was a beat down the first time we played. I never wanted to see the stairwell again. The 2nd time around it was not as bad.

I like the GWL, but I think the restaurant food is way overpriced.

Hope you had a great time!

I think if I were on the trip, I might have to add another rule: Fake a headache/stomachache/cramps/charley horse and spend the day (or at least a few hours) in bed with pay per view chick flicks and room service.

Are you seriously in Grapevine right now?? I'm like half an hour away from you! Crazy stuff. I've never been inside, but that place looks so fun... and huge! The Gaylord across the street is great too... if you get a chance just walk around the atrium it's very cool. Have fun!!

Have a great time! My kids went to the Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls Ontario last year...I didn't even know that they had them in the U.S. :-)

I hope that you all have piles of fun!

Can I just say for the record that I am REALLY proud of myself for not coming over there to see you? Because I did think about it and I usually don't have that much restraint.

Of course your right down the road from my house when I'm up here in Minnesota! Enjoy the rides! Prayers are going up for Blaine, keep that damn vaccum away from him would ya? Hugs from Fort Worth!
