One Final Trip

Mike started his new job at US Steel on Monday the 29th. We knew that once he starts he won't get an actual vacation for a year so we decided to take one last vacation before he started work. I had a pageant to run up in Madison, WI again so we headed up the the Dells the day before. Since it's the end of October and not 'in season' for the Dells, not much was open. We did score a sweet deal on a hotel room at Mount Olympus though. They have an indoor waterpark and an indoor amusement park (which was closed) They were also having a halloween party the day we were there so their outdoor park was open too.

When we first got to the Dells we went straight to the Original Wisconsin Ducks. It was cold!! It was an hour long tour and we saw a lot of neat things.

After that we just did a little driving before heading to the hotel to take advantage of the waterpark and go karts. We hit up the go karts outside first and Marley went on her first real roller coaster!! We had to go twice so that both Mike and I could go with her. She loved it!

After riding some rides and go karts we headed inside to the waterpark. Again, Marley loved it. Mason didn't really like it. The water was a bit chilly and he doesn't have a lot of meat on his bones to keep him warm.  After we were all swimmed out we headed out to dinner. On the drive in we passed Marley's Restaurant. That's where we headed, but since it was after 9pm they were closed =( So instead we ate at Buffalo Phil's. It's a county-ish restaurant and the food is brought out on a train, which again Marley loved!

The next morning we got up and packed up and headed to Madison then headed home. It was a very short vacation, but we do plan to go back when it's warmer so we can hit up some more go karts and outdoor activities.
