A couple weeks ago we went on a little getaway to WI Dells. (It seems like forever ago but I wanted to post pics anyway.) We have been going at least once a year for the past few years and it is by far one of our favorite vacations we take! It is so much fun watching the kids, they get so excited and just love every minute of it. Alexa had so much fun this year. Many of the big water slides require that you be 42 inches to ride and she cleared that by a couple inches this year. I was pretty surprised by all the stuff she did...anything she could go on, she did. She is definitely our thrill seeker child!
There's a lot of pictures on this post and they also aren't very good quality at all. I only took our little point and shoot knowing that I wouldn't take our big camera with us anywhere because I wasn't going to leave it with our stuff while we were off playing. I missed the nice camera though, it would have taken such better pictures. Oh well.
First of all I have to show you our "hotel room." If you are ever going anywhere where you are staying at a resort of hotel you should check out Craigslist. We found this place though a timeshare thingy on there and we barely paid more than we would have for a 2 queen bed hotel room. We had an entire 2 bedroom suite, it was awesome!
Here's just part of our master bathroom. I could have just stayed in there the whole time!
Here's the kitchen, fully equipped with everything we needed. It's nice to be able to bring all the food you'll need and cook right there instead of going out for every meal.
And the living room...the door on the left goes to the big balcony. Seriously, check out Craigslist...good deals!!
This pretty much sums up Alexa the whole time we were there, she couldn't get enough water park fun.
Matt took Alexa up to go on these slides and as I was watching people come down I kept thinking that I should quick run up and stop her because I didn't think she would like it (you had to lay on your stomach and people were getting water sprayed all over their faces on the way down) and as I kept thinking that all the sudden I hear some kid squealing the whole way down...yup, it was her. She loved it and wanted to go over and over.
Braden was happy watching for the most part. Definitely our less daring child (for now) he liked floating around the two story lazy river and going down the little slides with me. He had a blast! I just had so much fun watching them both get so excited about everything the whole week, it was so cute!
Every time we go to the Dells we go out to eat one night and the past couple years it has been to Buffalo Phil's. They have train tracks running through the whole place and they actually deliver your food on the little trains. Alexa though it was so cool to take her own drink off of the train when it stopped at our table. When they weren't delivering food they would drive the trains around with different characters or fun stuff on them, all the kids there loved watching them...what a fun job for the cooks, we were sitting right behind the wall from them and you could hear them laughing at times!
And at night when we were all watered out there was a huge 3 story indoor climbing thing, the kids spent hours in there running around.
