Family Vacay, Not my way!

The first vacation attraction, HORSES!
We joined thousands of others and trekked to the Wisconsin Dells this past weekend. It was a fun trip...most of the time!

They could pull ten tons!
The first day was vacation euphoria as we took a horse drawn carriage canyon tour, drove go-karts, had a picnic lunch at a playground, drank rootbeer floats, solved a mystery game at The Wizard's Quest, and ended the night with s'mores around a campfire.

Sounds perfect?

Libby wasn't sure about the horses!
Rootbeer floats before lunch!
 Well...then next day proved that we are far from that, and our family had a little bicker sessions...over and over. Geez, can't believe how the peace of babies and toddlers who don't express their opinon (too much) goes away so quickly when they hit school age!

Fortunately, we had enough foresight (and experience) to not end the vacation on a grumpy note, and had fun at a water park the last night.

Libby felt like she needed to sit when I pulled out the brother joined her!
Closing the water park down!
It made me realize though, how much we need to work on this family thing. It's not going to be easy, sometimes it won't be fun, but if we work on it constantly, it will be well worth it!
