The Wilderness




Brad, Dee, Brent, Bryekin and I decided to go down to the Dells for a couple days over spring break, so we ended up booking a room at the Wilderness. Thanks to a wonderful law enforcement discount we were booked in a 2 bedroom deluxe 900 sq ft condo. We left Menomonie and met Molly at the Golf Rd exit where I hopped in with her and we continued on to the Dells. We arrived around 120pm and Dee went to see if we could check in and the 2 bedroom was not ready...so...they upgraded us to the 1300 sq ft deluxe instead!!! It was lovely. We had a kitchen, dining room, living room, and off the living room was a master bedroom with masterbath (Brad and Dee's room) and around the corner was the 2nd room with 2 queen beds, bathroom, and wet bar, along with 2 patios. Molly got her own bed, Bryekin got his own bed (pack and play), so we were set!! We roamed around for a little bit to check out the area then went back to the room to suit up!! We kicked back in the lazy river for a bit and played in the kiddie area where Bryekin rode in the water swing!!

Molly, Brent and I went down the "Hurricane," and after that we ventured over to the wave pool only to find out that it was closed for a while because someone POO'D in it!! And people were lined up waiting for it to reopen, AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! We stayed in that night and ordered pizza from Sorentos, yummy!!! Thursday we got up and had breakfast, then suited up for the waterpark. Molly took Bryekin down a waterslide and he LOVED it!!!

Molly left later that afternoon as she was heading to the cities the next day to get ready putting together a bachelorette party for her friend Sarah as she is her maid of honor in her wedding this summer. The rest of us relaxed for a bit then headed to the MooseJaw for dinner. After dinner we went to the arcade for a bit of skeeball and hunting games and to let Bryekin crawl around in the infant area, but it was right next to the bigger kids playground and he didn't really like the noise from the ball shooter thing. He did get to ride the Garfield ride though, too funny.



The next day we got up and had breakfast and got everything packed and ready to go. We had to check out by 11, but the nice thing about the Wilderness is that you can stay and play all day after you check out. So...we ended up at the wave pool for a while and hit the road around 2pm.

What a nice getaway!!!
