I’m so happy the weather has been feeling more “fall like.” I do love me some sweater weather and of course, pumpkin season.
The twins had their first real beach day a couple of weeks ago. With my foot injury in July (a long post for another day), we were not able to do much towards the end of summer. But I was so thankful my parents came up for Labor day weekend to hang with us!Mama did manage to “make it up” by booking a Great Wolf Lodge trip. They had a deal for $99+ per night on specific days.I usually wait around anyways for this email to book a trip. I have never paid more than $139 per night. Prices can be over $300 when there are no good deals.
For our family, Great Wolf is perfect! I love that it’s contained, no glaring sun, plenty of life guards everywhere and if you need to go to your room, you have easy access. I did a review before but I always highly recommend bringing food/ snacks; it can be pricey and add up fast!This time we brought items to make sandwiches for lunch the next day and opted for the breakfast buffet (which is discounted when you book and order online) and snagged fruit there for a snack later.Traveling with kids is hard, but I have posted in the past on some tips that have helped us when it was just the toddler. The same applies with the twins, it’s just a matter of doubling up on EVERYTHING.
Lastly, one of our other final “summer activities” was the Balloon Festival in NH. It was definitely cool to see the Hot Air Balloons up close. The toddler wasn’t too fond of the Balloons at first, but she did warm up to it towards the end.And that’s a wrap for our end of summer . Next summer the twins will be walking and that is going to be a whole other ball game. 😉Excited to for Fall and Halloween (especially because it’s all Sammy has been talking about since last Halloween) and #pumpkinEVERYTHING!
