Are you still looking for that perfect gift? Gift giving does not have to be about a material thing when it can be so much more!
When my oldest graduated from high school and went off to college, I quickly realized just how much I had not done with him or my younger children. I realized that we had missed out on many opportunities to just experience life with our kids. We have given them all the gifts they asked for: video games, phones, computers, CDs, clothes, etc… If it was on their wish list, they got it. Unfortunately, the gifts did not provide us with quality time with one another. Instead, those gifts provided hours of our kids spending time connected to some type of device. This got me thinking about the bigger picture.
Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. It is about making memories with those you hold dear. From that moment on I realized that my goal would be to provide those memories for my children rather than focusing on the material stuff! I want my kids to look back on their childhood and have stories and memories to cherish and share with their children. So I want to challenge you to give the gift of experiences this holiday season! What better way to do that than to give the gift of a memorable trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Lagrange, Georgia!
I was provided with the opportunity to check out what is to come at Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange, and let’s just say I am howlin’ with excitement! This is going to be quite the resort just south of Atlanta. As a native southside Atlantian, this makes my heart HAPPY! LaGrange has an iconic way of life. It has a distinct Southern charm and easy-going people that define the South. Some of the best food and attractions can be found throughout this beautiful area. It is perfect for not only families but also couples and friends. With its historical past and charm, and I am eager for others to discover what I already know! Great Wolf Lodge found the perfect place to set up “camp!”

From waking up with Yoga Tails™, a fun and creative yoga class set to engaging stories, to crafts and interactive science experiments in the afternoon, and finally ending the fun-filled day with nightly Story Time in the lobby—the wolf pups will retreat to their dens at night fully tuckered out.
