On our way to Buffalo we made a stop at one of Ohio's famous indoor waterpark/hotels- "Great Wolf Lodge"!  Remember how I said that May is the best time to go ANYwhere?!  We were four of TEN guests in the waterpark.  Basically it was our very own park.  There were 14 lifeguards and ten of us.  The hotel workers said it had NEVER been so empty!  I took a gazillion pictures and we all got crazy waterlogged. 

Ike wanted to play water basketball the entire time.
 They had this giant jungle water gym with all sorts of cool knobs and buttons that made water dump on you (or other people)!
 And our rugrats were surprisingly quite brave. They went on every slide that they were allowed to- and some of them were pretty scary.  The lifeguards kept asking their ages and couldn't believe that they were doing all of the slides by themselves!!!
 Ike's favorite slides were the kiddie ones, though.
 And Zeb loved the tube slides.
And so did Ike!

Here are the monkeys doing a water dance at the totem pole.

 aren't they the cutest kiddos?!

 Ike was the first to get cold and tired.  We went back to our rooms around 7:30 to get ready for evening storytime!
 There was one other kid there with us.  They have some pretty creepy animatronics sing and dance to the kiddos-
and then the wolf comes and reads a story to them.
 The whole thing was super fun!  We totally lucked out that it was super uncrowded and it definitely made things better.
 Our kids are spoiled rotten :)

Wow! Who is that male swimsuit model?
and the only thing I don't like about your pictures is that you're rarely in them.
