Summer Fun Party - The Dells Won't Know What Hit 'Em

I just got back from vacation.  Let me rephrase that: I just got back on the first vacation I've ever taken with my children.  I have friends who take vacations every year and I sit in my kiddie pool, jealous of their lives.  This year, we got our own vacation.

We booked it in January so we got an amazing deal.  Here's where we stayed:

It's in the Wisconsin Dells and it was awesome.  It has theme parks next to it that are included in the hotel stay.  Which was great, because the admission to the park was a wee bit pricey... then again, I'm a cheapskate.

 The kids loved this vacation.  My feet are hurting.  They called me old.  I called them grounded.

There was an indoor water park and an indoor theme park.  Even though we spent tons of time in these indoor locales, I still got sunburned.

 They had Skee-Ball in the arcade... in the lobby of the hotel.  Many dollars were wasted here.

 The indoor water park... there were also water slides.  They were eight shades of awesome.

 The family rode the indoor roller coaster.  It too was awesome.

 Ice cream.  A mountain of it, in fact.  Yums.

My sister took this picture.  In subsequent pictures, she got spectacular shots of my back fat.  I hate her.

This was a tidal pool that tossed me like a rag doll.  My oldest son and I pinky-promised to never do this again.

For some reason, the Wisconsin Dells area is obsessed with putting animals on top of cars.  We saw lots of them... my husband decided to take offense at this for some reason, but he still stood for the photo.

Oh, and just to be clear: Nobody has paid me for this post.  I assume that the whole area is owned by a man named "Wisconsin Del"... if I'm right, he is welcome to pay for a return trip every year.  Feel free to contact me.

I hope your summer vacation was as fun as ours was!  Now, on to mountains and mountains of laundry...

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Looks like a great family vacation! Glad you were able to get away and enjoy yourselves!

  2. What a cool place! My husband is a huge Green Bay Packers fan and we are totally going to Green Bay one day. I'm going to make him take us here when we go. I literally just went to their website and had them map out the directions for me. Haha.

  3. I am glad you got your vacation :)) we all need those :) can you tell me how to put my name across my pictures? My stalker ex-friend keeps stealing mine. No hurry but if you got a second sometimes e-mail me at with suggestions/instructions thanks!

  4. The only thing missing from what looks like a wonderful vacation is the old timey photo of your family. Where is the old timey picture??? I could see those adorable boys of yours holding tommy guns or something. And...that ice cream eater of yours, cute!

  5. How fun, glad you all had a great time. I really like the hotel, thought it was going to be a joke, you know how your are, :p

  6. WHAT!!! You were there? Last week? I drove right by there - maybe - last week when I drove my folks from Madison across the line to Minnesota. We could have met, but then you would have had to miss all that fun. hehehe
    By the way, what is a dell? I've been meaning to look it up. All I know is it's where the farmer lives. (You know, the farmer in the dell. hehehe)

  7. Awesome! I've never even heard of this place. Looks like so much fun! Thanks for linking up to my travel party!
