Winter Vacation

While I was on maternity leave (I'm back at work now), we decided to take a little vacation during a break Austen had from "school." So Tom, Austen, Peyton and I traveled about three and a half hours north to the Wisconsin Dells. Now, the Dells boasts one of the largest places for indoor waterparks so we thought it would be a nice break to do some swimming in the winter.

The car ride up was easy. Both Austen and Peyton were great in the car. Austen is great because all he says is "I wanna watch a video" and we don't hear from him much in the backseat. Peyton slept most of the way so that was easy too. Thankfully, the DVD player came with headphones so Tom and I didn't have to listen to the Lion King or Nemo or whatever Austen was watching.

Anyway, we stayed at Great Wildnerness Lodge in one of their two bedroom, two bath condos complete with a family room and kitchen. It was pretty nice given that it was the Dells and these hotels are catering to kids and families. The place we stayed had four indoor waterparks so we had to get out and hit the first one that first evening we arrived. We managed to hit all four by the end of the trip. Austen rode the lazy river, went down a number of waterslides with us and without us and even ventured into the wave pool. We had a good time together and it made us wish summer was here already. Especially Austen - since he's been asking to go to the beach ever since we got back.
