Why I've been absent...

My birthday present from Pat and the kids was a trip to the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. It was AWESOME. Especially the Hospitality Suite that Patrick reserved for us...

2 tv's, an eat-at kitchen bar and fancy murphy beds that gave us SO much extra space!
All that extra space was helpful, seeing as how we had 3 kids and a Daddy who decided to contract Strep throat days before we left. He was a trooper, despite being utterly exhausted and unable to swallow more than a few bites at a time...
Pat's strep didn't stop us from enjoying the water park,
Cold Stone Creamery...or the mini golf at the Indoor theme park that is available at Kalahari.
They even convinced me to ride the Ferris Wheel...

I am still not too happy about that decision.

My daughter, the circus acrobat. She convinced me to go through 3 stages of this high wire obstacle course before I bailed and turned back.
Over and over again, she just whipped through that course while I shivered and shook on the ground.
Evan did a few levels too!

When a resort randomly offers you a free poolside cabana? TAKE IT. It rocks.
Another death-defying feat by my 5 year old. In this picture, she is calling back to me, "It's ok, Mommy! You're not going to fall!" Yeah, it's not the FALLING I worried about, it was the smacking into the wall on the way down that had me concerned. Needless to say, she climbed that wall several times. I? Did Not.
4 days of water slides, go-karts, laser tag, rope climbing, rock climbing, mini golf, pizza, ice cream and family togetherness...

And now I need a vacation to recoup.
