I just got back from a week away. We visited family and friends in Chicago, and made a stop along the way at the Wisconsin Dells.
Side note: while I was thrilled to see my kids having such a blast (and they had a serious blast!), the Dells grosses me out. Don’t get me wrong, the accommodations are nice. But the thought of all that water dripping off scuzzy bodies had me on edge the entire time. And then stepping in it, or having it drip on me… I can’t handle it. Anyone else ever feel that way at water parks?
But it was a really lovely trip, with trips into the city and lots of hours spent in the pool at Papa and Grammy’s house. I got to catch up with long time friends I rarely see at brunch in Wicker Park, and took in a ballgame at US Cellular (sadly, the White Sox lost). We spent time with extended family we rarely see, and got to hang out with two sets of grandparents. I sported crazy vacation hair the entire time, and wore a swim suit more than anything else. Plus, we only had one bout of carsickness the entire trip! All in all, our trip was a success.
