A Weekend Away

The kids were off of school this weekend so for the third year in a row, we trekked north to the Wisconsin Dells to let the kids enjoy themselves at the water park capital of the world!

We have tried a different place each year and this year was no exception. We ventured a little off the beaten path to Chula Vista and we weren't disappointed. The rooms were great (we of course booked a condo) but I still like Wilderness' indoor water parks the best because it gives you a little more variety.

Anyway, Austen was so confident this year to swim and go down the slides. He almost didn't need us. I did have to bribe him to go on the big water slide with his dad but hey, I bribed him with a book so it was a good deal! And, once he went on, he loved it! Tom thought he would be really scared since it was a pitch black tunnel they went through at first but he kept telling Tom this isn't scary! He was all smiles when he came out too and the raft they were riding in didn't flip over at the bottom so that made it a good experience!

Peyton definitely didn't like the water all that much until the fourth time we took her to the pool - the morning we were leaving! Then she started to get into it. I remembered from last summer how it took her a bit to warm up and she did.

The kids definitely loved walking together to the pool.

They loved playing all the video games together including Dance Dance Revolution!

And, they even got to share a room and they did really well. It's great to see how much they enjoy each other. It definitely makes twice the work that two kids are definitely worth it!
