Today, we're on our way from Minnesota to Wisconsin to stay at Great Wolf Lodge for Warner's 4th birthday. His birthday is really tomorrow, but he woke me up this morning, saying, "Mom, wake up, it's my birthday!" so I went with the flow. Bret wanted to get their asap, to enjoy the waterpark by noon, so the morning was stressful, including a clogged RV toilet. Hmmm. What should I do about this? In taking the trash to the dumpster that morning at 7:30a.m., I saw some people that I could have asked about what to do, but I was too embarrassed. So, we opted for Rest Stops and only peeing in case of an emergency while I left a message with the RV company for some advice (they didn't call back until about 3:00pm! In the interim, I asked total strangers in the RV toilet accessories isle at Walmart - nice).

We arrived at Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells at 12:30pm, our first taste of mile after mile of attractions and restaurants since Nashville (not to say that their aren't these in the other places we visited, we just didn't see them. Our first stop was an indoor amusement park for "cosmic" bowling and lunch (Harmond wanted to do the go carts, but he wasn't old enough). With only 5 tries, I captured Batman and Incredible Hulk dolls for the boys with "the claw," and we spent way too much money on video games and ski ball, but had a blast. Bret took the boys to Great Wolf Lodge while I tracked down a birthday cake, balloons, and a gift for Warner at the town's Walmart. The Great Wolf room had a "Wolf's Den" with bunkbeds and a t.v. for the boys. It took me so long that I didn't go to the waterpark the first day, but we made up for it the next. That evening, we had barbeque ribs and cake and watched Speed Racer to celebrate.
