DALLAS SPRING BREAK: GREAT WOLF LODGE

I cannot believe the 1st quarter of the year is already drawing to a close.  Where does time go?  In this case, our time most recently took us on a couple of trips, and we are still recovering.  First one that will make the blog was our spring break trek to Dallas.  We met up with some dear friends - Greg was John's youth pastor in junior high/high school, and we have since gotten to know he and Jennifer as a couple.  They live in SE Asia (we visited in 2012!) and are in the country on furlough, and it was SUCH a treat to get to spend time with them and their two boys.

Great Wolf Lodge is such a fun place, and our children had a blast.  We are finally at ages where everyone really and truly enjoyed it, and when we added two more bonus kids, they were all set!

We didn't leave the lodge for much and took several pretty decent meals right there.  We also did the story-time and yoga in the lobby.   We snuck away for one CFA breakfast.  (CFA's breakfast is so good we seek it out on vacation!)

Our last night there, we went to Central Market Cafe in Grapevine on the recommendation of a friend, and it was delicious and had a playground to boot!

We rounded out the evening with gelato/sorbetto, which made for happy campers.  We had one last hurrah together, which I'll document tomorrow, because there were SO MANY pictures.  Seriously - this time with these people was such a gift.  We stayed up late talking in the hall while the kids slept, and we laughed and cried and shared stories of life and all that God is up to.
