On Saturday, we woke up and drove to the Dells and checked into the water park. We stayed at Mt. Olympus and we rented a 2 bedroom suite. It was a really nice room, and wonderful to have the extra space, and an extra bathroom and rooms with doors so that Ava Grace could sleep and we didn't bother her. Ava Grace loved, loved, loved the water park. There was so much for her to do and explore. At one point she was walking around the place with Tom and I just following her, and we laughed at ourselves because she was in charge at that point. Her favorite by far was the huge water tube slide. You had to walk up A LOT of stairs while carrying a tube, who needs a stair master after climbing that! It was super fast and Ava loved it so much. She would cover her eyes when we went under the waterfall and then squeal with delight when we splashed down in the water.

Sunday we woke up early again and went skiing. Let me just say that the worst part about skiing is the ski rental and then getting everyone ready. You would think that with the ages of the boys they could do it by themselves, but nooo there tends to be that Mom could you help with this...Mom could you help with that...Mom where are my gloves....Mom wheres my jacket....Mom help with this...Mom help with that...blahhh that part I could do without! For the most part, once they have all their stuff and skiis on they are good to go. In fact, It is hard to even get them to come in for lunch or dinner!
Ava with her skiis, are they not the cutest things?
all dressed and ready to go!
