A weekend vacation at Great Wolf Lodge

On Friday we loaded up Max and (a very sick) Lily, and made the trip up to Traverse City for a water park weekend at Great Wolf Lodge.

Lily rode everything she was big enough for. No fear in this kid.

This is a perfect representation of what it's like to try to get a family picture taken.

Max conquered his fears and went on all of the big slides, we ate mountains of ice cream, and slept well every night. The kids were incredibly well behaved, and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. I think we might have to do this every year.

Lily woke up Tuesday morning pretty sick. She sounded pretty froggy, and was only interested in laying around.
Today (Thursday), she's lots worse. She's thrown up quite a few times, and is obviously exhausted. I'm post this to remember how adorable she has been throughout this ordeal. She will tell us that she "doesn't feel good", but she has been in great spirits the whole time. We're enjoying the time we get to spend snuggling with her. Last night, long after she should have been in bed, I told her we could lay in her bed for awhile and sing some songs (and afterwards we could watch tv). It was so nice letting the rest of the world go, and spending some time with my baby singing every song we could think of.

It worked. She did fall asleep. Until 7am. When she got up and barfed.

Hopefully she is healthy tomorrow (and Max doesn't get it). We're supposed to go to Great Wolf Lodge for the weekend.
