Last week my family went to the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
I got off work early, because it was a slow night, and nabbed some Zzzz’s before we headed out at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning. I did end up napping in the car as well.
We got there around noon, but grabbed lunch at a Culvers to kill sometime. We couldn’t check in until 4 p.m., and our neighbors (whose idea it was to all go together) didn’t leave until an hour behind us. So we all got to the resort at about 1-ish.
First, this place is massive. It takes about 10–15 minutes to walk from once side to the other.
Our room was ready, but our neighbors condo, was not. So we unloaded and then met them at the indoor water park (again, another massive area).
We played in the water for a few hours, then we all headed back to our room. to rest, relax and get ready for dinner. Amy and I headed down to the lobby area to do some shopping, check email (no wireless in the rooms) and get some sweets.
We then headed back and gathered the kids and took them over to the condo to our neighbors for dinner.
After that we headed back, settled in and watch “Night at the Museum” on the pay-per-view. Kids loved it. Then we went to bed.
Thursday we woke up, had some breakfast in the room (we brought stuff). Then went downstairs and let the kids do some pottery painting. Basically, you buy the unpainted piece, paint it and then they glaze it, etc. So the kids each did a coaster and Amy did a big pasta bowl.
We then went to the condo for lunch, then Riley and I headed back to our room for his nap and my school work, while the rest went to a full day of swimming! I met up with them when Riley woke up, we then took a break for dinner, then headed back for more swimming. Around 10:30 we went back to the room, order the new James Bond Movie, and Amy and I and the girls went down to a bar/restaurant with our neighbors for drinks and appetizers. Then went back to our room to bed.
Friday morning, we had breakfast at the “Great Karoo”, then packed up our room, headed down to the Game room (like a chuck-e-cheese), then picked up our pottery, the girls got a hair wrap braid done, and then we went home.
Before we headed home, we stopped and had dinner.
That was our trip. I will post pictures on here shortly!
