    Our Wisconsin Dells Vacation?

    Tuesday, July 18, 2006

    We spent the past weekend in the Wisconsin Dells with Grandma and Grandpa Andrews at a lovely condo. Of course, no Schmitt-Andrews vacation is ever a dull event and this one was no different. Temperatures were near 100 degrees, which prevented us from being outside much during the day. We visited the Dells Deer Park without incident, though it was VERY hot. It was when we got to a restaurant for dinner afterwards that the drama began. It turns out that Benjamin had a terrible stomach virus and he got sick at the restaurant. We had to go back to the condo where he seemed to recover, but during the night got sick again. We had planned to go out on a pontoon boat that we rented all morning on Sunday, but Benjamin was still a bit lethargic from his illness, so I stayed behind with him while my parents and Mike went fishing. The good news is that Mike caught his first fish...woohoo!!! When they got back from fishing, we all went to a winery for a wine tasting and then to dinner at the Essen Haus, a German restaurant. Just when we thought that Benjamin was better and our vacation was turning around, I came down with the same virus! Monday morning the other four seemingly healthy people spent some fun time in the pool while I stayed back and slept. We all drove home Monday afternoon and at various times on Monday night, Mike and my parents all came down with the virus, too. Though the vacation didn't go as planned, we all had a great time and we enjoyed spending time with each other!
