A Quick Visit to Woodloch


A year and a half ago, our little family went to this enchanting family resort called Woodloch.  The resort, situated on a lake in the backwoods of Pennsylvania, created many fun memories for us.  We celebrated my husband turning 43 and Little Lewie turning 5; we celebrated a year of blessings for our family (when we went through some personal challenges and struggles); and we celebrated life as we know it.

Our trip was so magical that we vowed to do it again, and in fact, all three of us wore the bracelets the resort gave to us (for the entire year and a half) as a way of saying to ourselves..."Remember Woodloch.  Remember Family." 

Our trip this weekend, although cold and snowy, didn't disappoint.  Woodloch is known to many (including the advertising industry) as "The Ultimate Play Date".  I don't know how to better describe this resort as it provides tons of activities for family members of all ages.  On this trip, my husband enjoyed the zip line, and we as a family enjoyed the pool, the go carts, the bumper cars, the miniature golf, the arcade, and the delicious food served three times per day at their main lodge.  (Everyone from the resort eats together at the very same time like a family.)

Go Cart Racing!

Lewie lost another tooth!  He now has two missing front teeth!

A little bit of snow in the forecast.

Waiting for milk shakes at the "Treat Place."  (That's Lewie's term for the snack bar.)

Eating at the main dining hall.  Little Lewie takes the best pictures...

The awesome pool at Woodloch!

Playing some sort of SEGA Star Wars game...

On this particular trip, Little Lewie played BINGO for his very first time.  (The stakes were high as we could actually win $20 - $80 per game!)  We also had the joy of watching a Saturday Night Live type of skit (for all ages) on Thursday night that was held in their very large auditorium.  It was the first time Little Lewie really enjoyed live theater entertainment, and I was impressed that he understood the humor.  Our favorite skit of the show was when the cast pretended to do a synchronized swimming routine.  Everyone's bare feet went up into the air except for one person who was wearing colorful socks and clown shoes!  Lewie burst out into a roaring belly laugh when he saw the shoes.  I couldn't stop laughing either.

Our quick two night trip went by in a flash.  I wish it could have been longer, but then again, I'm thankful that we even had the chance to go back.  I need trips like this to remember what's important.  I now have an orange bracelet to go with the blue one I received during my very first trip to Woodloch.  I'll continue to wear them with pride and to remind me that no matter what, "Family is First."


  1. Another tooth!!!!! Way to go Little Lewie! Little Chick just lost another tooth last night eating blue cotton candy at the fair. :) This trip looks magical! I can see why you wanted to return. Your smiles are beaming in every picture! I am so happy you were able to get away and have so much well deserved fun. I know how difficult it has been with challenges thrown your way so this was a great way to just go and have some fun. We miss you! Have a great day my friend!

    I like the toothless look- I think it's so cute.
