Gaylord and Great Wolf Lodge

Ever since Shad and I got married we either had or went to a New Years Eve party...that is until last year.  The kids are older now and they want to celebrate too!!!  So our new tradition is to go to the Gaylord on the 30th and then to Great Wolf Lodge on the 31st.  It is so fun to celebrate with them!!!

Can't wait to go to Ice and see Merry Madigascar
Emma, Ava, Caroline, Gracie, Jacob, Caleb, Libby, Henry, and Belle!

Are these not the funniest boys!!!  They had a big time playing together during Tricia's visit.  

Poor little Ava was just about a Popsicle before we got out of there.  Uncle Dede did a good job of keeping her a happy girl!

After our Ice Experience we ate a yummy dinner at the Mexican restaurant.  We were so lucky to get a table for 18! But then we were all wiped out and headed to bed.  

The next morning the kids were SO excited....they couldn't wait to get to the GWL!!!  We had some time to kill before we could check in so we ate breakfast and explored the Gaylord.  

The decorations were beautiful...but we really did miss all the cool reindeer from last year.  

All Henry wanted to do was watch the trains!!!

We still had some time to kill so we went by a local ski shop for a few minutes and then ate lunch at Steak and Shake....YUM!!!

No pics of the water park but we had a wonderful time sliding and playing.  We got a great room that all the McGaha's and Welch's could stay in together and the kids really enjoyed the wand game too!!!  But the very best part is the New Years Eve Party.  

Games, Balloon Animals, Movies, Face Painting, and DANCING!!!!

Henry didn't quite make it to midnight :( maybe next year.  

Oh and the glow in the dark stuff was too cool!!!

Looking forward to what 2013 has to bring!!!
Just missing our sweet Alex.  

My partners in crime!
