Wisconsin Dells Trip

When Jessica, and the kids were here to visit, we decided to take the kids to the Dells to the indoor water park. We went to the Chula Vista and it was very nice...great water park. The Chula Vista is outside of town in the country a bit so it was very pretty and you could see cabins around and it was even snowing.
We got a condo large enough for 11 of us. It was really nice and had 2 bedrooms, 2 fireplaces, 3 Tv's, a full kitchen, and a hot tub in the room. We just got there and Kaleb came running out of the bedroom and announced that we have a pizza phone!! I went and looked and he saw the pizza button on this phone and thought that this was just our phone to order pizza, LOL He was quite excited about this find!!
 Molly enjoying the roaring fire!!
 It didn't take long for the kids to get dressed and ready to hit the water park.
Kaleb and Tyler going down the slide:
Kim and Bailey:
 Bailey really liked the water and especially the bubbles that came out of the pool.
Jessica and Molly. She really liked the water too. 
Of course Zac was the jumper!! Perfect airshot!! :-)
 
 Everyone LOVED the lazy river. You could go around as long as you wanted, either on tube or swimming.

 2 tired and cold boys!! LOL
 Back in our room was the whirl pool and the kids loved that too. They had several swimming sessions.
Since we had the phone, we had to order pizza!! LOL A few cartoons before bed:
The next morning we hit the water park again. They have tunnels to get to the water park from the condos. There are 2 sections with animals and I wanted pictures of them by the animals. Now, you aren't suppose to touch and whose kids are touching?? LOL Sometimes when you see a sign not to touch, Hey!! You cant help but....touch it LOL
The 2nd day, Kyla got brave enough to go down one of the enclosed slides with Kim. She wasn't too sure about them the first day and she was still kind of nervous but she did it and she liked it. It is all dark going down the tube and then it takes you to a circle which is all lighted up for several loops around and back down the dark tubes again. Apparently when they slid out of the tubes at the bottom, their tube flipped over and I don't think she was a big fan of that happening!! LOL The tubes were alot of fun. Everyone was swam out so we changed and headed home but....you cant leave until you play the arcade games. Ignore the fact that of what they spent on tickets to play the games, you could have gotten the prizes at the party store for .25 LOL but.....then I guess they wouldn't experience the fun of game playing!!
It was alot of fun and it gave the kids time together and made memories!!

Tyler loved the snow.

I wasn't sure what Tyler would think of all this snow when they were here. But he loved it!! I think they played outside almost each day. He couldn't get enough of it LOL
Tyler and Kaleb would play outside for hours, digging and just running around.
I had told him that Grandpa would help us build a snowman. He was getting impatient so we went out and all of us built a snowman. Tyler named him Frosty!! how cute huh??
We  think that he turned out pretty cute!!

My First Applique project.

A couple days ago I took an Applique class at the shop where I bought my sewing machine at. I have always admired seeing things appliqued. She taught us and it was so easy. It will go pretty quick once I get the hang of it. We didnt get it all done in class but I did finish at home. This is what I made. I really enjoyed  the class and the ladies were very nice too. I have a zillion ideas now for more applique. Now, I just need the time LOL

Fun day at grandma's

Jessica, Tyler and Molly are here in Illinois visiting for a few days. Tyler LOVES the snow but cant say the same for Molly, she isnt a real fan of it.
Tyler and Kaleb are having fun on top of the snow pile!! They played in the morning for a couple hours.
The girls went out to lunch and shopping so I got to spend time with 5 of the grandkids. We had a great lunch of PBnJ, fruit and chips!!
Molly let me try something new with her hair, so this was her new doo!! Her hair is so long!!
Molly loves the kitchen and the food.
We had games with cousins......
Bailey playing with her junk drawer. She loves moving stuff around.
We had a serious gun fight and not to sure who won!!
And back outside to play in the snow after Kyla got home from school with Hot Chocolate with whip cream squirts afterwards.
We had group Hula Hoops, that was funny lol
Shoulder rides with Uncle Tom.
Home made pizza, snacks, and off to bed they went. We have 5 tuckered kids but it was a fun day. Now this grandma is tired too!! LOL
