Wisconsin Dells

We loaded up in the minivan for a summer adventure- location Wisconsin Dells. Suzie's family, my family and my parents were the final takers on a summer adventure. We stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge and that was a definite highlight of the trip. The kids loved it. They had story time every night and even a dance party one night. They did face painting and had a coloring table. They also had several characters of the great wolf lodge that came out during the afternoon. Not to mention all the swimming and water parks at this resort. We could have spent the whole time at the resort. 

We spent our tour time on a duck boat tour which the kids loved- lots of hills and fast driving in the woods and even a nice ride on the water. We did a train ride which was pretty cool and our favorite was the lumberjack show. The kids got to try out the saw and take their own wood chip home. It was very entertaining. On Tuesday morning before we hit the road we stopped at Mr Pancake- delicious in every bite. 

Overall we had a really great time. The only downfall is that it is forever away- 6 hour car ride. Kids did great, though
