I won't pretend like we had a perfect trip. I mean, we were traveling with 3 kids aged 6 and under. Did we have some tears? Sure. Difficulty falling asleep with everyone sharing the same room? You bet. Spilled drinks? Of course. An hour of pouting and crying on a pool deck when one stubborn child did not care for the rule that all children at that particular pool under 48" had to wear a life vest? Had that too. But at the end of the week-end, we had 3 happy little kids who declared the trip a success. What more could we ask for?
We had 3.5 hours each way on a bus for playing, reading, napping, snacking, and watching movies.
At our resort, there were 4 waterparks, a big indoor playground, arcades, ropes courses, go-karts, mini-golf, and restaurants. In our less than 48 hours at the resort, we found our way to all 4 waterparks, most of the restaurants, and the playground. Briggs's favorite water park might have been the Wild West waterpark that had some fun little waterslides. He couldn't get enough!! (And I love the picture with Staley cheering for him at the bottom.)
Adelie declared Cubby's Cove her favorite park. It was the least crowded and had a pool with bubbles (a whirlpool) that she thought was great.
Staley LOVED the wave pool. That was hands down her favorite part of the trip.
Zach found his way to a couple of the sports bars in the resort to catch play-off games after bedtime. He did not love the fact that we were in Packers country to witness the Packers achieving a miraculous play-off victory.
It was a fast, full, and fun little get-away. We came home with 3 exhausted little ones, but made some fun memories in the process. And really, a few nights of 7:15 bedtime to catch up isn't all bad either.
