Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Vacation Momentos

Early this week, we were blessed to take a mini family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge. Regan had Monday and Tuesday off school, so we headed up Sunday Morning and returned Tuesday evening.

Much to Paul's surprise, I purposely left my camera at home. I had minor concerns about where to leave the camera when it wasn't in use and preventing it from getting wet at the water park. But mostly, I was concerned about getting too caught up in 'capturing' the moments instead of enJOYing the moments. 

I did have my cell phone with me and took some photos with it. Now, I just need to figure out how to get them off the phone and onto the computer! LOL! 

I took this picture today of some of the girls souvenirs from the trip. I'm sure this, along with the cell phone photos and some meaningful journaling, will still allow me to document our trip on a future scrapbook page.

The girls were trying to figure out how to pool their money, a total of $40, to buy a wand and play the MagicQuest game they have at the hotel. We came to an agreement that if they both contributed all of their money, we would pay the rest for them each to get a  'Paw Pass'. With the pass, the girls were each able to get a wand and play the game (which was tons of fun!), make an animal (build-a-bear style), have 20 tokens to the arcade, paint a pillowcase or t-shirt (they both chose pillow cases), get a glitter tattoo and have Chipstix snack from the snackbar. It turned out great and gave us lots of things to do for our three day/two night stay there.

It was a great time getting away with the girls, sans diapers and pull-ups and pack and plays and life-jackets and all the stuff that goes along with little tikes.
