Dream Vacation

This week we're taking a dream vacation in the Wisconsin Dells!

We boarded the dog (well, dropped him off with Emily's fabulous dog sitting service), locked the door, and rolled down interstate 94. These will be the best days of our lives. We can tell.

Here are some of the things we saw along the way!

First we completely filled the car with stuff. Check out that packing job!

We headed out only an hour and a half behind schedule. Once the girls fell asleep we stopped to pick up some lunch on the go.

I don't know if there is a Hardees in MN, I don't remember seeing one before so it was pretty exciting to stop here. I've never had a charbroiled thickburger, and I also did not have one today because I don't eat meat, but I like the way it sounds!!

Fiona woke up a little later and was excited to eat a cookie.

Then we had a leg stretch...

We knew we were in Wisconsin because of all the cheese signs...

And the truck that's a gas station sign. I get excited every time I see this!

Then we got stuck behind this crazy truck. It had a huge load of pipes that was seriously tilting over and looked like it was held together with duct tape and hope. I was convinced that at any second it was all going to topple over.

Luckily we made it past in one piece and then we were almost there! And then 20 minutes later we were there! We're spending the week with My Uncle Michael and Aunty Julia, and my cousins James, Chris and Catherine. Fiona has become Catherine's biggest fan already and they spent a long time hiding together this evening. Cousins are the best! :-)

The weather looks a little dismal, but it's going to be a wonderful week!

Hope you enjoy your vacation! I loved The Dells when I went and think it would be fun with kids too. Are you doing touristy things and swimming too, or just hanging with family? Guess I will have to read to find out!

I can't believe those guys wrote a song just for you to celebrate your holiday! Have a great time!
