LOL! I never heard of Wisconsin being known for Fireworks. Around here I would say Michigan is the one known for it. Also when traveling I always see sign in Tennesee.

I would say to me, Wisconsin is known for Cheese/Dairy, Tractorpulling, and the Dells. LOL!
Oh and the Packers. My grandfather grew up in GreenBay so even though I was never into sports he was ,and would talk about them all the time.

Being from Wisconsin, I had to check on your PTR when I saw Off to Wisconsin Dells in your title! I've been there a couple times (usually just to go to Noah's Ark, the main water park in the Dells)...it is pretty cheesy! Hope you have fun! Can't wait to see the mini TR.

Now I've got to go back and catch up on the Disney stuff. How exciting you are staying at AKV. That is awesome it's your home resort!

Have a great trip and enjoy the waterpark. I am hoping our pool is warm enough for the kids to swim this weekend. My DD10 has been begging her dad to make sure the pool is ready!!

Not actual 8 oz cups, but like 'travel mug' or 'Caribou Coffee Medium drive-through' type cups. In real cup size...uh...an embarassing amount of probably 12 or so...
Does that mean the third contest is "How many stops will Brook have to make on the drive?"

Have a great trip!

And 30 isn't that bad! I spent my 30th one week overdue with my first son. Went into labor the next day. Forty was the year I had to go back to work. So for fifty, I had enough money to really be able to do something great (also 25th anniversary year)! There's always so many exciting adventures to look forward to, why worry about aging? It's just another adventure!

brookelizabeth, I'm jumping in on your PTR, too. There's nothing that I love more than planning for an up-coming trip to The World. I'm so psyched about our December trip, I can hardly stand it. I haven't even told our friends and family because I know what they will say..."What...you're going to Disney AGAIN???" If they only knew that I was also planning actual details already, they would think I have a screw loose. What's great about the DIS is we all feel the same way. A trip that's 6 months away is practically next week!!!! Am I right?

Hope you guys are having fun, if you aren't home already! Is this a water park like the Great Wolf Lodge I hear so much about? I bet little Henry will have a blast - looking forward to seeing your great pictures!

We are back!
We had a GREAT weekend...and even extended it by a day!

We headed out on Friday, came back on Monday - in 4 days I took 835 pictures. I joined SmugMug.com (thanks for the suggestion LL!) tonight and will be doing the mini-TR using it instead of Photobucket to see how they compare. I should be able to start the Dells TR on Thursday (along with a PTR update).

Thank you! And a BIG thanks for the link in the PM! I haven't had a chance to read through it all yet, but really look forward to it. I can't believe you remembered that I have a degree in City Planning! You have a great memory. The link was a very sweet surprise!

I enjoyed reading all the 'Nawlins talk! Years back, DH and I didn't have too much money to spend on a honeymoon, so we chose New Orleans!

We went in mid-January, though, so we missed the Sugar Bowl and were just ahead of Mardi Gras. What a fabulous city! We had so much fun! And the food! Amazing!

I'm glad that you are thinking about using TGM for your WDW trip... I highly recommend it!

Kathy
I've heard so many great things about New Orleans, I'm excited to experience it! It's been on my list of Cities to See for quite a while. My pastor from my church back in NYC went down to the area often (and to Mississippi) after Hurricane Katrina to assist and brought back stories of the people-it made me really want to go, but the timing never worked to travel with him and our church for a trip back then.

TGM-I'm glad to hear you like it! I kinda want to research the pros/cons of the three I hear about, TGM, touringplans.com and ridemax.com. I'm tempted to email the DISPodCast for advice. Maybe my email will get read on the PodCast!

I loved NOLA when I was there. That was back in my 20s during Mardi Gras. Yep, Mop was a little wilder, crazier in those days.
We had a really fun weekend! The indoor waterparks are such a great idea-Joe and I want to go back when the snow is falling so we can walk around in just a swimsuit and shorts and laugh in the face of winter!

Mardi Gras, eh? I can only imagine how CRAZY it would be from stories I hear...are the stories exgarrated, or true?

Around here Wisconsin is THE place for fireworks, but that's because even sparklers were illegal in Minnesota until about 5 or 6 years ago. Everyone snuck in fireworks from Wisconsin!

But yes, it is very well known for the cheese and dairy! Tractorpulling I don't know much about....but ya, the Packers. I don't know anything about football, so I didn't even think about them! The cheeseheads!

That is a GREAT idea! Wow. I haven't seen that one yet. Henry would loooove it (but I don't let him eat too much peanut butter yet, so it will be a treat after he turns two!)

It was a really fun time. There is so much to see and do-it's kind of a quirky place too!

I have been to Noah's Ark twice-once I almost drowned in the big wave pool there! Thankfully it didn't give me a fear of water, just of BIG waves. The Dells can be kinda cheesy-it's got some weirdddd stuff, but there are lots of fun things too! We had a great weekend and I have lots of pics to share!

I am VERY excited about staying at AKV!! All the pictures look so beautiful. I'm sure we are going to love it!

Surprisingly it was warm enough here in Minnesota (and Wisconsin) this past weekend to even swim outside! Of course today it's back down into the 60s.

Yay! For YEARS I never met anyone with my same birthday, but you are the fourth person now!! I think 30 will be just fine. It's kinda strange saying "30" though...I think I need to start acting more like an adult.


Nah!
