Family Vacation-The Dells








The Dells were a blast. We stayed in a condo at Glacier Canyon Lodge (a part of The Wilderness Resort). Anyways, we shared the condo with our good friends--the Stapps. They have children close in age to ours and they are fun, awesome people.

Highlights: 

We didn't ever have to get kids in and out of cars because the condos were connected to the indoor waterparks by skywalks. 

The condo had a full kitchen, two bathrooms and a living room area. The space was perfect for the amount of adults and children and the length of stay.

We didn't have to eat out the entire vacation which saved on cost. We planned all our meals and ate really well.

The kids played really well with each other and had a lot of fun in one of the kiddie pools, the hot tub and the family raft rides. 

The adults actually got to have fun too because we took turns watching kids and babies. Cody and I got to ride "The Hurricane" and the "Black Hole" together along with a few other fun water slides. Also, Emily and I went on The Hurricane slide four times together and got to walk and talk leisurely up the stairs...FUN!

The water dome area had an awesome wave pool and a comfortable area to get some Wisconsin Winter rays.  Maurie even took some heavy waves without crying which meant the whole family was on a tube together...more fun.

We also got to eat at Red Lobster after the trip, which was a treat. 

Lows:

Jane cut her toe and ripped her toenail the first night. She acted like someone was going to cut her open when the lifeguard tried to put a band-aid on her toes. The blood made it worse. 

Two of the water park areas were too big and claustrophobic for me. I didn't feel like I could watch Jane well enough in them. They were also very noisy.

Jane found a band-aid in the kiddie pool that was not hers!

Maurie did not sleep longer than a four hour stretch both nights and had to sleep in our bed.

I couldn't stay awake later than about 9:30 pm both nights! I was the one who had big plans to play games and have fun when the kids went to bed. =)

My feet hurt from walking around barefoot and it was hard to keep up with Cody as he literally run up stairs. I am out of shape! =)



The trip was a major success! What does your ultimate family vacation look like?

Best,

Lucy
