Were Back From The Dells And Exhausted!

Sorry I've been MIA the past few day's. I had planned on a couple posts before we left to Wisconsin Dells but little man got a really bad fever a couple days before we left and those few days were pretty rough. Thankfully the fever broke after 2 days and he was feeling better before we left : )

Saturday was kinda hectic getting last minute things and making sure everything was in order. Packing up as much as I could minus a few things I had to wait till the morning to do.

Sunday morning we got up (to get ready anyway) at 6:00.  Got everyone dressed and fed. Finished getting things ready and tried to make sure I wasn't for getting anything.

Got the van packed and were out the door by 8:00. We stopped to get gas and ice for the coolers. Then we were on our way.

About 70 miles in we were pulled over or rather flagged over. Ended up with a $160 ticket for going 10 mph over. So that wasn't the greatest start but the office let him keep his licenses since we were going outta state.
The ride there wasn't that bad. The kids stayed awake for a little more then half way there.  They all took a little nap between 30 - 45 minutes.

It took us about 3 hrs to get there. The boys were happy ti finally get there : ) We packed a cooler and had eaten lunch in the van on the way up there. So when we got there we were able to go play in the water right away.
We ended up staying at the water park for about 7 hrs before heading to the hotel. The boys knocked out that first night : )

We got up around 6:00 again our second day there and got dressed so we could go have breakfast.  The hotel offered a free continental breakfast. They had a make your own waffle station, eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, coffee, juice and milk. It was pretty good and saved us some $ that's always a good thing : )

Our second day we ended up staying at the water park for over 8 hrs and the boys were wiped out by the time we got back to the room. So we just order a pizza for dinner. They slept great again : )

We decided to let the boys play a few hours the third day before heading back home. We had till 11:00 to check out but just checked out after breakfast and went to the water park.

Little man loved being in the water! They had a tot area with a couple small slides and he loved it so much. He kept pointing and smiling to go down again. He wore us out going over and over but he was so happy and had the biggest smile : )

The ride home wasn't quite as calm. Little man wasn't a happy camper and wanted me to hold him. We had to make a couple pit stops to nurse and let him get out of his seat.

Everyone was beyond exhausted by the time we got home. But the van had to be unpacked and stuff needed to be put away.

All in all we had a great trip! The weather was beautiful so we got to enjoy playing outside and inside. And we were together which is the most important thing to me : )
Sorry this post is kinda long! I took a ton of pics but wont bomb bard you all with all of them : ) I'll just share a few.
