Tanner had so much fun sledding. What you don't see in this picture is that I have a rope around my waist and I was running up and down the street. That is when I realized why you should have your kids when you are young. lol He kept saying faster, faster. My legs were burning, my lungs were burning and I thought I might drop dead of a heart attack. Then I had a brilliant idead. I told him dad could make him go really fast. I don't think either of us will ever be the same.

As many of you already know our little town was evacuated for flooding the other day. We were pretty confident that our house would be fine but decided just in case we were wrong that we didn't want to be one of those families you see on the news be lifted off our roof by a helicopter. So anyway, we decided to follow the recommendation to evacuate. Anyway, we didn't know where to go (we had many offers) and then we had this brilliant idea to make it a vacation and head about an hour south and go to the Great Wolf Lodge. It was a blast. We had so much fun. I had called them and told them that we were being evacuated and they gave us an amazing rate. Acutally cheaper than Best Western and Holiday Inn. Anyway, everything turned out fine and we were able to go home the next day. We were actually hoping to be able to stay another night. The place was amazing with so many things to do. I have to say I am so greatful for the flooding because it was so fun to get away and bond as a family. I am sorry for those who didn't fair so well but for us it was a blessing.
The had a great area for Tanner to play. Lots of things to push and pull that made water squirt everywhere.
