Other much more fun things happened in June though. Friday, June 5th, Will got to go with one of his best buddies, Luke, to Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte for his birthday. Will has never been to Great Wolf Lodge, doesn't love water, and hadn't ever spent the night with a friend. It was a recipe for disaster! ha! It actually turned out great. He loved it and wants us all to go back. I didn't think he'd have any problems spending the night away from us and he was fine. He said he loved the water slides (shocker!) and all the water park activities. His favorite thing was the Magic Quest. A scavenger hunt is right up his alley. Now I want to go check it out!
That same afternoon Lindy invited a friend, Adah, over to play. I got the girls from school and we actually went to the Humane Society. We stayed for over an hour and they went back and forth from the cats to the dogs. Adah is an animal lover like Lindy. We headed home and they played for awhile, we ordered pizza for dinner, and then we headed back to WS to meet Adah's mom. We met at the yogurt shop. They got yogurt and then we all headed our separate ways.
Saturday morning we were up early and headed out to Charlotte. It worked out pretty well that we were headed to Charlotte for a family reunion and Will was in Charlotte at the Great Wolf Lodge. We stopped and got him on the way and then headed to a local park to have the Southern Family Christmas! ha! We used to always get together with Bob's siblings every Christmas but as the families have all gotten bigger it was just harder and harder to find a day during December when we could all go. The siblings decided to try a different time of year. It seemed to work the beginning of June, even if it was blazing hot. We enjoyed catching up and seeing all the new babies being born. No kick ball this year, I think the fields were wet. We went back to Bob and Suzette's for a little while and then headed home.
