Weekend Away

We took a much needed, much anticipated weekend away last weekend, which included staying a night at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. We had a blast with some good friends and thought you might like to see all the fun! (You'll notice there are no pictures of me in a swimsuit - that's the power of running your own blog!) This is Elijah being camera-shy. He was taking a snack break from all the crazy water slides he had ridden!
Dan and Elijah are looking at the "giant" as Elijah described this waterfall. There was so much for him to do, it was a bit overwhelming!

Too impatient to walk around the net, Elijah is trying to get back in line for the water slide as soon as possible! The kid's pool was great - only about 8-10 in. deep in the deepest parts. It was great for really little ones, toddlers, and older kids, too!

This is Alli posing for the camera. I love a baby in a swimsuit!

Lookin' up to her friend Em, who graciously watched her so Dan and I could enjoy some rides every once in a while!

The water park finally wears Alli out. She fell asleep while I held her and we made a successful transition to a soft chair. Her nap was about 2 hours long and it made the rest of the day enjoyable - for Alli, for us, and for everyone else!
If you've never taken advantage of the off-season deals these types of parks offer, then I highly recommend doing it! It was a fun break from the ordinarily dreary, rain-soaked April days. As we left, Elijah was already asking when we would get to come back!

Looks like fun! My hubby and I always talk about taking the kids to a waterpark, but we haven't made it so far. From your blog and other friends, it sounds like the Kalahari is a good choice for waterpark fun.

I'm glad you had such a fun trip! Your kiddos are too cute.

P.S. Thanks for the comment on my blog -- so sweet! And thanks for fixing my name in your links.

Man, looks like a blast! :) Alli is precious...that one pic of her in the swimsuit where she's looking shyly at the camera, so cute!

Things are going well here...progressing along with what I had talked to you about over dinner. I will have to shoot you an email soon.

We had the fun of going to Kalahari in December. (yes, we took advantage of the amazing specials, off season) We went to the one in Sandusky, OH, just a top-notch place. Room was beautiful and we had just tons to do as well as the perks they give food, breakfast, pizza, tokens, room uprgrade..all for the package price.

We did this as a thank you to the kids for their patience (and neglect and some R&R for us) after completing the majority of the kitchen. Glad you had such a great time!

I just love the picture you got of Alli! You should get that printed in an 8x10 to hang somewhere - It's adorable!
