Makes My Monday: Laundry List

When we had no employed adults in house--not that very long ago--Scott made a promise to the kids: When he got a job, we'd go to shangri-la, a.k.a. Great Wolf Lodge. So...

What Makes My Monday?

1.) Jobs

2.) The successful cross-pool passage via teetering lilypads that so eluded Darren despite exhaustive--and exhausting--attempts last visit, was achieved repeatedly this visit.

3.) Laughter peppered, permeated, punctuated the weekend.

4.) Throwing all previous back issues to the wind, Scott and I rode all the waterslides and are experiencing nary a twinge.

5.) Darren read aloud to us the whole way down...

6.) and Sarah listened.

What a great motivator to find a job- kids being told they can go to the greatest place ever?? I can't wait til mine are ready to go back (we took them at 18m which proved to be a little too young for most things).

What do you think about an interview with Double Daddy on some of his thoughts being a stay at home dad (if he is currently fulfilling that role)? I think it would be a great read!

I'm sure something MMM, so when I think of it, I will come back and link in!

I wish my kids sat that still in the car when we go for drives.

This is the best idea I've heard in...I don't know how long. I want to go too! I'm going to go and look it up right NOW. And good for you guys for being spontaneous (and congrats on the job).

Cheryl - We had the "Wolf Den". Last year when we went, my daughter was in Kindergarten and thought she could read. She laid in her bunk and asked, "what does D-E-N-F-L-O-W spell?"...we thought for a moment and were pretty sure Nedflow wasn't a word. It wasn't until the next morning we realized she was reading "Wolf Den" in the mirror!

So how sore were your legs and bottom when you left? I've been training for a 1/2 marathon in May and you'd a thought I'd not worked out in YEARS! All those stairs did my butt in!

Christy said...

That is awesome that Darren read the whole way.... and awesome that Sarah listened! That is a big one around here!!

Sounds like a fun time was had by all. great post, great pics!

Brooke said...

Going to the lodge...the great wolf lodge. GREAT!!! You have me singing their song now.

Hope you had fun, we just came off a road trip and Braeden read the whole time too....isn't that the greatest?

Deanna said...

Kudos to Darren to be able to read in the car --just looking down makes me sick!!
