Quick Trip With The Kids

Took a trip with the kids over the Father's Day weekend and had a great time. We went to a wonderful resort in Wisconsin Dells. Chula Vista Resort has a wonderful all-inclusive package that makes vacation soooo much easier. I have stayed there now 4 times and each time has been better than the last. The constant improvements to the amenities and services has turned the resort into one of the premier resorts in the Dells area. In talking with management and other staff while there they are working hard to add some more rides outside which would be another great improvement. Also I feel they could make a few minor changes to the inclusive package to make it even better. It doesn't have the largest resort water park, probably the older teens would get a bit restless after a couple days, but it is plenty large and diverse enough for small through early teen children.

The weather couldn't have been better and the crowds weren't bad making the stay even better. The kids had a wonderful time playing for hours at the indoor and outdoor parks. The beautiful grounds and the expanded river walk area made for a nice relaxing early morning walks. The fresh "turf" on the very nice mini golf course made for great fun and competition. I was golfing one handed most of the time as I was usually holding a drink of some kind. As a result I lost all our games to the kids.

The first day we were there my daughter had an afternoon at the very nice spa at the resort. It is her birthday next week and this was part of her birthday present. She is turning 11 and it is making me feel old! She has never had a spa day and I thought this would be something different and special to make my little princess really feel like one. She had an awesome time. The staff at the spa made her feel so comfortable and treated her like royalty. She had a manicure, pedicure, massage, and a facial done and loved every minute.

The afternoon before we left we stopped and walked and shopped the Dells River District. It is a downtown area along the river with a myriad of shops, eateries, and attractions. The kids had a great time looking through the stores and buying a few souvenirs. We did take a bit of time and enjoy a game of laser tag which I won! Now we are done and it is back to the day-to-day. I'm already very much looking forward to my coming trip down to Texas in a few weeks...
