Wisconsin Getaway

This year, we celebrated Christmas with my mom's family up in Wisconsin! We spent one night at the Dells and played in the massive indoor waterpark all day, and then in the morning as well. Vivi is not interested in water slides, but loved the huge indoor climbing playset. Also she and Maya had a blast with Tia Didi and Grandma playing on the luggage carts! Tonito on the other hand- he is not scared of anything! In the morning it was just Tonito, and me and papi, and we took him on every single ride he was tall enough for. He is so funny because he seems a little scared on the way down, but then keeps asking for more!!! He seems to have no fear- which will be really fun once he is tall enough for roller coasters. After the Dells we all spent the next couple of days at my aunt's house, in the beautiful, snowy woods. We went on a sleigh ride (sans Maya who was a little frozen;), and had sleepovers at night. The kids loved playing with their cousins, and it was fun to see everyone again. We had SO much fun and can't wait to come back again for a visit! Thank you Anna, Jenna, and Nate for graciously sharing your bedrooms and toys with our kids:), and Auntie Pat and Uncle Pete for organizing the whole fun weekend!!!

Poor Maya looks a little cold here!:) She went to play in the car with papi, Tia Colleen and Tia Mimi while we went on the sleigh ride!

Vivi LOVES horses, and she loves singing jingle bells (so we changed it to "Oh what fun it is to ride in a 2 horse open sleigh"

Over the river and through the woods..
