Weekend in the Dells...

I can't believe it's already been a month since we snuck off for a long weekend in the Wisconsin Dells and I'm just now getting my pictures uploaded. I guess that happens though. After we got back, I was so busy with WalkAmerica coming up. Being on the planning committee and the Ambassador family took a lot of extra time, but was worth it and so fun!

We headed down to the Dells on Thursday night. It's about 2.5 - 3 hours from here. We stay at our timeshare at Christmas Mountain Village. We love staying here, and especially in the spring, the off season. It's not so busy, but still can be nice weather. Granted, a lot of the waterparks aren't open, but my girls aren't really big into that yet anyway. They like the little zero entry pool right at Christmas Mountain.

What do you guys think of their swim suits? Do they look too small? You know L & S are 4.5 now. I'll tell you a secret...those suits are size 18 months! ACK! They are getting too small and we are retiring them, but I'm amazed they could still get them on!

One of the days there, we took the girls on the Original Wisconsin Ducks tour. Very cool! I loved it too. You can read about it HERE. It's about an hour long tour where you go on land and on water (the Wisconsin River). It's very scenic. The girls loved it.

We also made a trip down to Prairie du Sac and toured the Wollersheim Winery. SO beautiful and the tour was so fun. Great wine too! We came home with a few bottles.
Beautiful winery - great wine!

One evening we ate at this German restaurant called the Essen Haus, where all the wait staff dress in traditional dress. It was quite enjoyable! Virtual Tour Then, afterwards, we tooled around the square (that you see in the virtual tour and headed into the ice cream shop where Lindsey quite enjoyed her Cookies & Cream ice cream.

Sydney was more interested in the games and the bubble gum machine!

We came home Sunday evening, via Dh's parents. We had a nice couple hour visit with them. We don't see them that often since they live three hours away. We weren't planning on coming back until Monday, but they were airing my radio interview for the March of Dimes on Monday morning and I didn't want to miss it. We had a quiet ride home.
Another great weekend in the Dells

All the pics from our weekend away and tour of the winery can be seen HERE.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
