Big thank you to the Smith grandparents for taking us to the Great Wolf Lodge. We all had a lot of fun. Since Madeleine has learned to balance with a life jacket, swimming has been even more fun for her. But she decided that it would be even BETTER if there was nothing between her and the water...so we kept a watchful eye on our water tot as she took off down the kiddie slides. And she didn't drown...maybe almost...no, not really.
Annora wasn't as sure about the water as Madeleine was, but on the second day she finally warmed up to it. Well, it might have been an actual warmth issue as the water seemed colder than it had before. Ryan and I both agreed that it was the air temp they had decreased. We remember it being sweltering and enjoying the water as a "cool off". But with cooler air and a cool water temp, Annora wasn't so sure this water thing was for her. But eventually she decided to fall in her sisters footsteps. No water slides for her yet though. Just some chill time in the kiddie pool.
