Family Weekend

Today we’re packing up the family and heading up to Great Wolf Lodge for some indoor camping fun. Great Wolf is up in Williamsburg and looks like a hunting lodge – it’s pretty neat. Some of their suites look like you are staying in a log cabin – and you don’t even need any berghaus clothing in order to be all camper ready! You just need to bring yourself (and your suit because there is a huge INDOOR waterpark!)

Unfortunately; this time around we won’t be able to stay in the log cabin or even the wolfs den, we just have a large room with two beds, but I still think this trip is going to be a lot of fun! Basically, why we are going up there is for a marriage retreat sponsored by my husband the command. I jokingly say my husband because it’s him and the Chaplain that are running this thing. It’s been a huge headache this week (well, the past couple months also – but mostly this past week) since hubby has been “bringing home his work” all this past week. I know he’s just doing his usual 110% but it still sucks sometimes. But, this weekend it’s about US – me and him – because there will be CHILDCARE ALL DAY (and for two hours at night!) and you can be sure we will be taking advantage of this! (Yeah, I’ll be on the ‘net and he’s going to be watching television, lol). Here’s to command sponsored fun!


  1. That sounds SWEET! My husband’s command is all about stressing their guys out until their wives want to leave them. LOL Not very marriage friendly thus far.

    I’m hoping to make it up there even if only for a night sometime this fall. Those themed rooms are so neat. 🙂 Have fun!

  2. Hope you all have a great time and that it’s worth the effort. What is the ratio of divorce in the military, if you know? Just wondering…thanks

  6. TV my ass!!!! I will disconnect your wifi card AND hide the battery to your cell phone if I have to in order to get some alone time with just you! Preferably spending some of that alone time in our lush hotel room 😉

  7. I’ve been told that there is an indoor water park around where I live in somewhere, but I have yet to see it. I would really love to go to it, though, sounds so exciting and definitely different. Have fun!

  8. We want to take a trip up to the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City because we know the kids will love it, but it is SO expensive! We’re saving money slowly and hoping to go next summer. I hope you have a great time!
