Wallis Reunion - Wisconsin Dells

Scott's family gets together every other year for a family reunion. We didn't make it to the one two years ago, so were excited to head out to the midwest for this one. It was Scott's parents turn to put everything together, and decide where we were meeting. They picked Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. So, Monday morning, we got the boys up bright and early and headed to the airport. After a day of flying and then another day of driving, we arrived at the Sand Drift resort. Here is a picture from the beach of the resort. We stayed right on Lake Delton, which is a man made lake off of the Wisconsin River. There was a dock and a little sandy beach, which was perfect for the kids to play on.
Adam spent most of his time on the beach or in the water. In fact, we didn't learn very quickly that he wasn't going to stay out of the water. After changing his clothes for the 4th time, we finally decided to just leave him in his swim suit.

The lake was man made, so it was very shallow. Adam could walk out past the dock, and the water only came up to him waist.
Grandma brought this great alligator for floating in the water.
Adam spent lots of time floating on the alligator and paddling himself around with the garden tools.
He had so much fun playing in the water with his cousins.
There were also row boats, paddle boats and canoes. One night we decided to take the boys out on the water.
It really was the perfect place for us to stay. The beach and water were so fun for the kids! It was a challenge to keep Adam out of the water!
