The farmer in the Dells...

Not exactly...but we were! There has been so much "crap" going on here lately we thought it would be nice to take a little break from everything that has been stressing us and so we packed up the kids and went to the Dells for the weekend. We had so much fun I wish it could have lasted a little longer! It has been a while since I have had any good photo ops, so bear with me....there are a lot...
When we first got there everyone was a bit wound up from the 4 hour drive so I was very surprised to get this great picture of the 4 kids actually sitting still.
I think Kyle took this picture of Alyson and me...not too bad for a 9 year old.
The boys just chillaxin!
Not that great, but here is one of me and Kelly...
Andrew being Andrew, I swear that cell phone is attached to his ear!

Poor Matthew! All that swimming and then dinner was just too much for him to handle!

Andrew sporting his new "cool" shades....

Alyson was not to keen on the water slides, she finally went down them about an hour before the pool was closing on our last night. She was so funny, she cried all the way down, pouted as she came out and then quietly asked me if she could do it again!

Matthew on the other hand, we needed to put a GPS unit on him! He was everywhere. We could not get him away from the slides.


Alyson coming down again....

And then trying to act like she isn't having any fun. It was funny because every picture of her going down this slide look the same...eyes closed, mouth scrunched and then a pout when she got out...heaven forbid she let anyone know she was having fun!

Andrew was a little harder to catch going down, the slides he was going down were a lot bigger and a lot faster, but I did manage to get him coming out of the tube...

See, what did I tell you...


It took a lot of begging to finally get Andrew to go down the smaller slide with Matthew but I think they both had a lot of fun....


I even got him to go down by himself so that I could get a better picture, he even had fun on the small slides even though he came down a lot harder because the water wasn't deep enough....


Kyle was the hardest to convince to go down, I did finally manage to get him to do it and lucky for me I got a good picture the first time down, because that was all he would do...

Wait! Did I say Kyle was the hardest to convince...I lied...I was the hardest to convince. Despite the fact that I am afraid of heights and never really cared for slides, I did promise my son I would go down the raft slide with him before we left and boy he held me to that. I screamed like a baby ALL the way down while Andrew laughed harder then I think I ever heard him laugh before. Everyone was laughing...the tubes are dark and hollow so the sound echoed throughout the whole place. In my defense, my son did tell a little white lie about the slide. He told me that because there was two of us on the raft it would go slower, well if I would have thought more about it...the more weight, the FASTER it would go! He told me "that was a scream I never heard come out of you before!" and just continued to laugh.

This pool was a little more mine and Kelly's speed...no slides, no tubes, no rafts and nobody else but us....

Oops, it did have though, buckets of water dumping on our heads!

Last but not least, just a couple of random pics I decided to throw in...


We had such a great time, I can't wait for our next adventure!
