In honor of my grandson's ninth birthday, on January 2, 2004, we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City, Kansas. The Lodge is located near the NASCAR Race Track and Cabela's Sporting Goods Store and is currently enjoying a high rate of occupancy. The main attraction, of course, is the Great Wolf Lodge water park. Where else in the Kansas City area would you be able to swim, ride a tube on a "lazy river," and slide down eight big, wonderful water slides in the month of January? Oh, the water park has a lot more water-related fun and excitement than I have mentioned, but I recommend that you make a visit there and explore all of it, so that you can experience how truly wonderful and exciting it really is.
We have promised our grandson that we will bring his family back to the Great Wolf Lodge and waterpark in late May of 2004 to celebrate his graduation from the third grade.
He can hardly wait.
