Green Bay has a bit of a cloud over it this morning after yesterdays loss to Seattle. It was a total bummer of a game, but the team is still strong and hopefully we will make it to the Superbowl next year- I was really hoping that this was the year! Other than the Packer loss we had a really wonderful weekend in the Dells!
I was off on Friday and got the family ready for the trip so we would leave right when Ron was done with work on Friday. We stayed at The Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells
and had a blast checking out the place when we arrived on Friday night. The pools closed, but Kellen checked out the game room before crashed for the night.
A natural? Mom isn't too sure about that!
The following morning we did a little more exploring and started the day with a big breakfast before meeting our friends at the water park. The Wilderness has three different pools (including a lazy river and a large wave pool!) and Kellen loved every minute. We spent a lot of time by the lazy river because there was a large shallow area for the kids to play and splash. In the afternoon, Kellen enjoyed lunch and a long nap. We ordered spaghetti in the room and took a trip to the arcade (Kellen won a stuffed Turbo!).

On Sunday, we packed up and got breakfast before heading to the pool for one last swim. Ron and Kellen rode a tube in the wave pool and I hung on to they didn't flip over! It was wild surf! After, we met with our friends and swam a little longer before getting our stuff together and heading home. We went right to my parents for the game. We enjoyed snacks and drinks before the defeat....boo.... oh well, we have next year! After the game we headed home for warm baths and a bit of relaxing. Kellen headed to bed early and we watched an episode of Cold Justice (seriously, if you haven't watched thus show give it a try!).
This week I do not have a lot on the agenda, but am having dinner with my girlfriends on Wednesday. This weekend Ron has a cribbage tournament and we are going out for Thai!
