Little Women and the Great Wolf

The Little Women and their parents spent Friday and Saturday at Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, Washington. The Little Women enjoyed frolicking in the large indoor water park, which included, among other things, a large wave pool, a bucket that dumps 1000 gallons of water, and a set of water slides. If you want to ride a raft over a waterfall, backwards, and in the dark, then this is the place for you. The visit also allowed them to visit the world’s northernmost Burgerville location.

Double Puppy Party

Clara and Nicolyn turned eight last week, and to celebrate this the Little Women had a Puppy Party with six of their fellow Little People.

Thanks to much hard work by Jenelle, a good time was had by all. More pictures are here.

Thrill of the Hunt

The Little Women spent Easter Eve (okay, so maybe that’s not the real name) on the trail of the Easter Bunny and its coveted Easter eggs. This consisted of scouring the front yard for little plastic nuggets of goodness.  Each of these had a piece of candy and a piece of a jigsaw puzzle that showed where the Easter baskets were hidden. The puzzle was harder than expected, but it all worked out in the end.

The Final Dust?

It looks like the end is near for the Little Women’s basement remodel.  All of the major work is done, and only the finishing touches remain.  The new washer and dryer arrived on Friday.


A package arrived at the home of the Little Women yesterday, which could mean only one thing: it was time for a new craft project. Clara soon had a clear vision and knew she had to create the finest automobile ever to be made from a cardboard box. Nicolyn assisted with some of the details.

Pardon Our Dust

Two weeks ago the long-awaited basement remodel commenced in the Palace of the Little Women (a.k.a. Schloss Mädchenlein).  This is a down-to-the-studs remodel that should improve the utility and appearance of the basement by several orders of magnitude.  More photos will come later.
