Something that stands out to me from my childhood was my parents waking us up one time – it seems like it was around this time of year – and declaring it was kid’s day. I don’t even remember what we did but it was great fun and something I’ll never forget – so while I might not be great at surprises – I still like to try. JJ and I decided we should take a trip to Great Wolf Lodge as one last hurrah before school. We didn’t tell the kids but it didn’t take too long for them to catch on – I mean, there’s not too many other place we might be going overnight in the Charlotte vicinity. But even though the surprise wasn’t all that surprising the weekend was still a win. There were lots of water rides, candy, arcade games and even a round of bowling.
