For Luke’s 3rd birthday, we took a family trip to the Wisconsin Dells. For non-WI folks, the Dells is basically an area in the middle of WI that has tons of water parks, attractions, shows, restaurants, and is a total touristy summer vacation destination, especially for families.
We stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge. It was overall decent. Obviously, the outdoor water park area isn’t open yet, but the indoor part was more than enough to keep Luke entertained. We totally lucked out and went in the middle of the week, so there weren’t too many people around. The front desk people told us that the following weekend, they were 100% booked. Crazy!
Anyway, we got there on Wednesday afternoon. Luke got Wolf ears.
We hit up the water park for a few hours. Luke loved that they had water slides that were small enough that he could go down alone with Scott or I catching him at the end. He also did pretty good “swimming” around a bit in his life jacket.
Afterwards, we hit up Famous Dave’s for dinner.
Luke wanted a drink of Scott’s beer, and so we figured for his 3rd birthday, why not. .. . haha. He took the smallest drink ever and then spit and wiped his tongue. Hilarious.
Water park = amazing naps.
And for Luke’s birthday dinner, we took him to a train restaurant where all food and drinks are delivered via train. It was basically a 3 year olds best day ever.
And it delivered birthday ice cream.
And no birthday trip is complete without birthday doughnuts with sprinkles, right?
It was a great family trip!!
We got there on Wednesday afternoon and headed out Friday morning which was a good amount of time for us and Luke. The Great Wolf Lodge was just ok – the water park was pretty good, but since there are SO many options at the Wisconsin Dells, I would probably check out another place before going there again.
Have you ever been to “The Dells”??
