Sounds like a great day at the Water Park. I had to laugh as I watched Noelle in her high chair falling asleep. It amazes me where little ones can just fall alseep.

We are FINALLY, for the first time, trying Ohana in August. I've heard mixed reviews on it and was always hesitant to try it but figured we would decide for ourselves. Those potstickers look really yummy.

Love the family picture at the Poly.
thanks kathy, welcome home

it also amazes me where grandparents can fall asleep, i think my grandma thinks church is a great place for nap, never fails falls asleep each week.

glad you are trying it and can make your own judgment on the meal...but i really think you are going to enjoy it.

OK I'm about a week late for your update, but I finally tracked you down.

Fantastic family picture. Love the outfits. Candi's dress is so pretty!

Love your view. I can honestly say I have never had a decent view at Ohana's. Looks lovely.

Yummy good. I could go for those chicken wings and noodles right now.

The kids look like they are having a blast!

Loved your update.

Chapter 47. Live Life Update Part 1

Chapter 47. Live Life Update Part 1


Another break in the action, but will still have a few disney references in this break.

Parkers birthday was tuesday, we had his party scheduled outdoors at a park on saturday well the weather was not being very nice, so last minute thursday night i had to find an indoor locations.

I became very well acquainted with the local eating establishments and there menus and such in a short time.

So the party was moved to a pizza joint that we had not been to in a while but had a nice size party room for us.

It was a monster truck theme

The kids loved there coloring table of monster truck pictures.



when i ordered the pizza the lady said i would not need that much, but then i told her i would have more leftovers for me.



one of parkers cakes, we put some of his monster truck toys on the "dirt" track he loved it.


another great thing about the party somewhere else was they cook, cleanup, and nothing for us to do but leave when it is over and relax at home and play with the new toys.

also gave us some down time before we left the next morning to head to Wisconsin Dells for part of his gift from candi and I.

it was a nice 4 hour trip and we made it plenty early to enjoy the day at the resort.


:note: some of the pictures may be out of order i used 3 different cameras but i did my best to put them back in order.

our bedroom for the next few nights.






when you checkout they let you use the indoor water park and amusment park the rest of the day, so this parking lot ended up being a ghost town that night and the next two days. the one desk guy told candi that there was only 25 of 700 rooms booked the next few nights so we would have the place to ourselves basicaly.



part of the indoor waterpark.


there was tower with two tube slides on it, another tower with 2 body slides, and a huge pirate boat play area for the little ones, a lazy river 2 hot tubes, and a big pool just to swim around and jump in.

not huge, but plenty of things for a little kid to be entertained and a kid at heart to be entertained.

when we first got there we went over to the indoor amusment park and played around some before dinner.
noelle liked the train/trolly going around


the coaster was fun but just a little too big for parkers height.


sort of like prime evil whirl at AK park but not as spinny.

later that night after dinner we went to the water park since it was open later.

and im sure pat will be upset with me for not holding on but i wanted to get a picture of the ride down.


and why stop at a picture when you can video the whole thing


gives you a real sense of the ride.

it was a blast parker and i went on it for about an hour straight with no breaks, i surely got my leg workout in that night climbing the stairs.

parker and candi had a more relaxing water park time, noelle just was content playing in the water with the bubbles and shooting water...which was fine with candi she just sat with her and let her have fun.


we did however enjoy the lazy river for a few laps.



we let parker open a present early so he could sleep with it...he made sure he kept the tic toc crock on one side of the bed and hook on the other he said he didnt want tic toc to eat him during the night.



after the travel and playing all day the kids were pooped and just cuddled up with me on the bed and had some popcorn while we watched toy story 3 on the disney channel.


on monday since the water park didnt open till 10:30 we had some time to kill so we went downtown and explored the few shops that were open and i was glad i went in this one and found this little gem.


in case you can not read it, it says not tested on animals, its made with animals...if it wasnt 7 bucks i would have bought it.

a few more interesting places along the way...i forgot the name of this one but it had an upside down white house.





this was part of the outdoor section of our hotels amusment and water park, but was not open yet...



our room was inside that little rome wall


we went to the water park for a while then back for lunch.

after lunch noelle laid down for her nap and parker and i went out for a little go kart time and rides.


the place was a ghost town and we went on the go karts as many times as we wanted it was great.
on the way back to the room

parker and i stopped for a little ice cream.


nice thing about the resort is the wrist bands that you wear to get into the the parks has a bar code on it, so if you want to buy anything you just have to scan it and then they charge you when you check out, nice to not have to carry money while in the parks.


on the way back up to the room to get candi and noelle from her nap we stopped in the gift shop for some pictures im sure ms kathy will enjoy.







Continued in part two below

Chapter 47. Live Life Update Part 2

continued from previous update



my eyes were closed on purpose in this one.


when we picked up the others we went to the amusment side again and let the kids play some bowling they had a blast cause the balls were just there size.



candi and parker enjoyed a spin on the go karts.


some kids in the arcade had one 3 of these balls and there parents said they didnt have room to take them all home so they gave one to our kids.


on the way to dinner that night noelle insisted on wearing her diaper bag


dinner was at Moosejaw brewery

we liked there delivery cars.


and in true parker fashion he loved the back of the car and asked for a picture back there...


i dont think i need to explain what he thought was so funny.

with our dinner we opted for the 10 pointer beer sampler...we had to try all there brews they make right?


and a few silly hat pics at the table.




we claimed there beer cheddar soup (had potato hunks and brats in it,) as the best soup we have ever had in our life it was that good.



candi said the ribs she had were the best she has had that she can remember they were very good i had a few bites.

in the gift shop the kids wanted to try on more hats.





even though we were stuffed we still went to the water park that night to have some more fun and another hour of going on tube slides with parker which we both had a blast doing.

the next day was parkers birthday

he woke up to his presents well most of them here with us.

his favorite that morning his captain hook pirate ship

then at the water park that morning we had the water camera and i decided to take some pictures as my point of view when he was jumping in to me.


an underwater jump in shot





then he started making faces as he jumped in for the camera.




after we checked out we stopped in town at buffalo phils for parkers birthday lunch it is train themed.

he loved that the train brought the food to the table


with out check they gave us a coupon for free rides at the play area, so we enjoyed some train coaster sort of like goofys ride in the MK but packed in much tighter.


and of course a hat pic on the way out.


the two places we ate at were owned by the same company sense a theme in this ones vehicle as well for deliveries?



when we got home that night he had another gift waiting.

it was the second large item we brought home from disney last fall, it was the contemporary to go with his monorail track

he loved it and i had to set it up for him that night.

you can see how big it is based on him sitting next to it.



so it was a good birthday for parker, you know he had a good time when he has played hotel since we have gotten home, included using the room key card to enter his room everytime he needs to go in.

asking for menus from the restaurants we ate at when we sit down for a meal, and when we go into the car to go somewhere we are taking the hotel bus to our location.

Looks like a fantastic time! Can't believe how big Noelle is getting compared to your time in Disney. Parker is quite the handsome young man.

it was really awesome, candi found the recipe online and we are going to try making it soon.

she has grown up, but still seems very little to me, i dont want her to grow up to fast.

thanks, we had a really good time on the trip, even though i got a few weird looks because i was wearing my bears sweatshirt in packer country but i didnt mind.

he had a really good time on the trip.

it is a cool set, he got the monorail for Christmas and we saved the contemporary for his birthday to spread it out some.

you should get a set they are fun to play with

they just came out with a Polynesian set as well might have to get that on the next trip.

i think this is your first post


we had a really good time, how close are you to the dells? parker really wants to go back some summer when things are open outside to play there.

also i was trying to find a good cheese place to get some wisconsin cheese.

the one place i found was about 15 bucks a pound and i didnt really feel that much in need of it.

thanks, it was a really neat themeing that had going on, the rooms were all very nice and a great price for what you got.

paid for the room the whole family could get in free to the water and amusement park rides.

and was the perfect size for the kids...just enough to keep them entertained the whole time.
