Last week a few families from our life group decided to load up our collective 14 children and 8 adults and venture 5 hours away to vacation at the Great Wolf Lodge.
Yep, 14 children and 8 adults.
Yep, we’re crazy.
Packing for my family is a huge task, even if it’s only for three days. Packing for a teenager, three seven-year olds and an infant boarderlines on insanity.
My biggest challenge was planning for what obstacles our seven-year old autistic daughter would face on this trip.
Great Wolf Lodge is a hotel with an indoor water park. It’s massive. The lobby is like Vegas for kids. Lights are flashing, music is blaring, arcade machines are cha-chinging. There’s a build-a-bear station, fake tattoos, pedicure salon, pizza parlor, ice cream station and so much more.
If I was overwhelmed I can’t imagine what was going on in my little girl’s head.
