The Dells (part 1)

In August 2019 we took Liam to Wisconsin Dells and introduced him to the fun at Noah’s Ark Water Park. Until the pandemic Erik and I had been going every summer at least once.

It really was a fun trip and we had planned to take Liam again the following summer…

Well we finally were able to fulfill the promise this month!

Starting the trip with ice cream of course!

We stopped at the DQ in Two Harbours MN

We spent some time shopping in Duluth on the way to the Dells. One of the stops was Camping World. Liam informed me that if someone told him he could have 20 minutes to spend a million dollars there he could easily do that!

He was really impressed with the deluxe ice fishing shack…and after 15% down and $417. For 240 months it could be his!

A few more toys that caught his eye…

One of the things that Liam often mentioned when he spoke of the trip was how much he liked was that we stop at rest stops to grill when we travel. This picture is from the 2019 trip.

And this year

We were able to find the same rest stop

We have stayed at the Shamrock Motel on almost all of our stays there, it’s the perfect place for us! It’s right across from Noah’s Ark and supplies wrist bands with your stay. Liam really enjoyed being able to sit and chat with Pappa just outside our door.

We also grill and picnic at the motel.

Of course the main purpose of the trip is the water park…

We spent the first day from opening to closing at the park. We normally take a break mid day and return to the room for lunch and a break. However not this year, Liam didn’t want to miss any time or rides!

The Raja was the big favourite of the guys this year!

My favourite ride is still the Black Anaconda which is a water rollercoaster, the guys don’t find it as exciting as I do but humour me anyways!

After closing the park we enjoyed a rest and picnic supper and later walked the downtown strip finishing off the day with some ice cream. We all had a really good sleep that night!
