The Wisconsin Dells

Let me make a family vacation recommendation: The Dells! (It's a really long drive, but worth it.) We are staying at Lake Delton in a great condo. We have awaken to this beautiful view, sun, and 80 degree weather every day. This is the waterpark capital of the world, and we went to "Noah's Ark" (the worlds largest waterpark) on Sunday. It was awesome. Our little family stayed there from 9:00-5:00, needless to say the kids were asleep when we put them in the car! Everyone else joined us around lunch time. Rob, Jason, and I stayed late (while mom, dad, and Michele took the kids back) and did all of the adult rides. It was like being a kid again! Do you remember going to Adventure River and dreading the "Jaronemo" slide??? Well I did it...and I am sure this one was even taller! Probably for the last time in my life (since I will be 30 soon!) We even got Chad on a few waterslides, which was a challenge, but he loved every minute of it. Yesterday we went out on a pontoon and grilled hotdogs. We took a swim in Lake Delton, which is actually like swimming in melted snow. But Rob pushed me in, so I made the kids push him in...see picture below! The kids are loving spending time with Reagan and JJ and Chele. More pictures to come, these are from the first 3 days, I can't believe we have 4 more days, I have NEVER been on a 7 day vacation as long as I can remember. I am really enjoying reading "The Shack" (thanks Kate) on the deck in the mornings. Unfortunately, the weather is about to get a little rainy, but we have the indoor waterparks and outlet malls to do!
