Family Mystery Trip

What is a family mystery trip?

Well........for us, we planned a surprise trip for the kids. We did not tell them where we were going. 
They were only given 2 clues:

1. It was in North Carolina.
2. Pack a swimsuit!

We heard guesses like........the beach, a hotel with a swimming pool, and a water park.

With our kids being 18, 12, and 8, we had to think of somewhere they would all enjoy! I have had my eye on a specific place for a while but the timing never worked in our favor.  When I knew we were going to have to pick up Laney  in NC from my sister's,  I knew this place was perfect. Since Griffin would be heading to college soon, one last family get away was a must. 

Our mystery trip was to............

The Wolf Lodge in North Carolina

The Wolf Lodge is a hotel with an indoor water park. It was definitely a place every age can enjoy! The rooms were fun! The girls had their own little room with bunk beds.

The best part about the hotel is definitely the indoor water park. We spent most of our time there! Our families favorite water ride was The Tornado. One night we stayed until the park closed at 9. The Tornado is very dark at night which made it even more thrilling! I didn't get any pictures of the big water rides because I was too busy having a good time on them!

We had a great time together on our mystery trip! 
The kids said they loved that we kept it a secret and we should go on more mystery trips.

We couldn't go to NC without visiting with my sister and her family. We had to love on this little guy!
