**My family and I were hosted by Great Wolf Lodge – Colorado Springs as part of a press trip. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.**
Moving twice in one year has taught me many things; but mostly it was a stark realization of how much stuff I have. How much stuff my kids have. I mean other than the regularly scheduled growth spurt that requires an entire new wardrobe… they do not need as much junk as they have. This presents a particular predicament come birthdays and Christmas. I want to buy my children things, I love shopping, and Target has mastered the sorcery that is marketing to mothers. 😉 Something that I have been trying really hard to implement around here an emphasis on experiences and not things for celebrations. We had the opportunity to experience Great Wolf Lodge’s Snowland this year and it was definitely an experience worth remembering!
