Great Times at the Great Wolfe Lodge

We were thrilled to be invited by The Great Wolfe Lodge to attend their second annual slide-a-thon to benefit the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program of the Charlotte area this past weekend. What a fabulous way to kick off the summer!!

Since Mike works on Saturdays, I invited my sister to come along with me, and the boys had a blast! We were treated so wonderfully by the folks at The Great Wolfe Lodge, with a buffet breakfast Saturday morning and a cabana in the pool area to hang out and take breaks!

From 11a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, for every guest that slid down the River Canyon waterslide, Great Wolf Resorts donated $1 to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program.The waterslide-athon event, now in its second year, occurred simultaneously at Great Wolf Lodge resorts across the country. The goal for this year was $250,000 nationally, doubling last year's goal.

We met with the local representatives from the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and some of the management team from The Great Wolfe Lodge to hear about the wonderful partnership they have. You can tell that everyone involved really has a passion for this program. It's great to see a large organization committing to such a great cause.

It was a fabulous time for everyone and we had some tired little boys by the end of the day! But never too tired to pose for a picture!


  1. Great pictures! (As usual!!) My parents are surprising the kids and taking them to GWL this weekend! Can you say "date night?"

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
