check this place out. the great wolf lodge. the best way to describe it is hillbilly kitsch. it made for really good pictures. the indoor waterpark means that shirt and shoes are pretty much NOT required anywhere in the place. we stopped here after dinner with my mom-in-law since it's over in her hood, right across from another monsterous hotel/"resort"/convention spot, the gaylord texan. you should see that place at christmas. who knew all this could be found in grapevine texas.
