Wisconsin Dells

We just got back from our Cathcart family vacation to the Wisconsin Dells.  We had a fabulous time!  We started our vacation early Thursday morning and got up there at a good time.  We stayed at the Chula Vista resort, which was beautiful and a lot of fun.  They have a HUGE indoor and outdoor waterpark that we enjoyed.  We hit the waterpark as soon as we got there.  Brad and Andy were brave enough to try out the crazy outdoor waterslides.  They were like little kids, when they got to the bottom they were both laughing and smiling and saying “Let’s do that again!”  Jaxson loved hanging out in the regular pool.  We would take turns swimming with him.  He liked to show off his bath tub moves of back floating and blowing bubbles in the water.  His favorite thing to do was to play with his trucks by the pool.  Friday morning we hit the local Tanger Outlet Mall and found some good deals and then it was back to the waterpark that afternoon.  I even got brave enough and tried the indoor waterslides.  They were insane!  Brad and I went down the “toilet bowl” waterslide together on a tube and it literally took my breath away.  It was so scary but fun.  Jaxson’s favorite part about the indoor waterpark was the lazy river.  He loved riding with Brad and I on a tube and loved watching Daddy get wet from the waterfalls. Saturday morning, Steve, Kris, Brad, and I took Jaxson to the Timbavati Wildlife Park, which was quite neat.  They had some exotic animals and of course the best part was that Jaxson got to ride the train.  Then it was back to the waterpark for more water fun. It’s nice to be home, but we look forward to going back to the Dells some time.  I’m afraid that Jaxson is going to wake up in the morning and the first word out of his mouth is going to be “pool.”

He was a good little rider. . . of course with the help of paci and blankie.

    Wow, I had no IDEA indoor water slids could look like that. What a blast! I’m a wimp when it comes to adventurous fun, but I think I could get into that kind of leisure sport 😉 We’ll have to add the Dells to our list of future family vacation spots!

    Looks like you had an awesome trip. I had to laugh because I work in the city of Chula Vista! I was thinking you were there and didn’t tell me 🙂 just kidding.
