    Thank you for mentioning these great water parks. I wonder if I could get out of my business meeting and visit one of these parks when I am visiting Michigan. I am taking my son along with me; I want to give him a good sense of work ethic, plus his mother is going on her own vacation. I was in north carolina last year and found a good amount of  <a href=”http://www.greatwolf.com/concord/waterpark”>north carolina water parks</a>.  Believe it or not, I saw a Great Wolf Lodge. I guess they have facilities all around the states. Anyways, thanks for giving me options to spend some time with my son.
