We just got back from Woodloch Pines, a 1200-acre family resort in the Pocono Mountain lake region of Northeastern Pennsylvania. It's been around since 1958 although you wouldn't know it to look at it; the place is beautiful, not to mention kid heaven, not to mention parent heaven.
The cast on Max's foot didn't slow him down—just the opposite. He's faster than ever in it. Still, he took lots of rides in the vans that constantly circulated the property...
Also exciting: spaghetti! For lunch and dinner! I told one of the dining room managers ahead of time that was his food of choice, and she made sure he had it, even during the outdoor lunch BBQ. The staff was beyond accommodating, both to Max and guests in general. One of the owners of the resort, John, constantly circulated during mealtime to make sure everyone was OK, and he had the best pants ever: SpongeBob ones one night, Toy Story the next. The place was packed—lots of families, and family reunions.
There were waaaaaay too many activities to pack into two days.
Max spent most of his time in this kiddie car—so much so that he started driving other kids around (although he did not charge them for the service).
Activities we didn't even get to: The scavenger hunt, climbing wall, batting cage, shuffleboard, bocce, horseshoes, biking, Zumba, Zipline, waterskiing, Name That Tune, bumper cars, Dr. Balloonicus (who made all sorts of balloon creatures one night, but the kids conked out), and the theme show (we all conked out).
I hope all of you have some good mini getaways (and big ones!) planned for summer.
