Brian's company switched things up a bit this year, and decided to send him on two research/development trips this year in lieu of his typical November trip to Orlando. After talking about it for a bit (and checking in with the grandparents), we decided to make on trip a little getaway for the two of us.
His first trip was to the Wisconsin Dells (water park capital of the world). We flew into Milwaukee and then made the drive to the Dells. Neither of us had ever been to Wisconsin, and the parts that we drove through we gorgeous. The scenery, the farms, the old barns.
We went straight to the water park and spent the day riding new rides, trying the food, and stopped for my personal favorite: Dole Whips!
After a long day we checked into our hotel, debated naps, and then decided to just keep going! We woke up at 2:30AM, but we didn't stop and went to putt-putt at 7PM! We had to stop and take a picture with our room number. Who doesn't love 227?
We drove through the Dells a bit before we settled on putt putt. We ended up choosing a course based on it's view!
Because the view was seriously gorgeous.
I really loved the trip to Wisconsin, and it would have been awesome to have more time there. After our round of golf, we found a place to have a late dinner. We woke up the next morning and headed off on the next leg of our trip - Chicago!
