Our last summer fling

Ok, I'm a little slow on getting the pictures on here, but last week we went to Wisconsin Dells and we had a BLAST!! It was probably one of our best vacations ever. We had the added bonus of bringing my parents and my sister and her husband along, so we had extra hands to help with my kids. We spent day one swimming at a great hotel, as well as taking a "Duck" ride and go-kart run.(above is probably one of my favorite pictures EVER of Goose)Day 2 has no pics, because we were too busy having fun at Noah's ark. (That and none of us remembered to bring the camera. small detail) The kids loved the play area (see illustration below), and everyone took turns going on the "big rides". I was SOOOO grateful to have some extra hands along to help us out. THANKS MOM & DAD AND KELLI & JONATHAN!!!Day 3 was just our little family. We played again at the hotel pool before heading home.
We also went to see Wall-E as a last summer vacation fling, but I have to ask, why didn't anyone tell me this movie stunk? I have say, I hadn't heard ANYTHING about it, but let me be the one to tell you, don't bother. At least that's my opinion. I felt like I was sort of being preached to about all the garbage we produce and the lifestyles we live leading to obesity. Add that to Tank's crying through nearly the whole movie, and it was not a fun experience. (first she was sad because wall-e was lonely, then because the new friend starting blasting him, then it was scary . . . you get the point).

Anyway, to sum things up, we had an awesome time at the dells and are trying already to figure out when we can go back, and how we can have an extra set of helpers again. :)

Jack and Megan got bored in the middle of it. Fortunately, Darrin thought it would be a fun daddy's day out kind of thing, so I could stay home... and clean. But he said the same thing: boring!
