Vacation Part 2

David and I had all kinds of wants for our Wisconsin Dells Vacation. What we didn't expect was such a big tourist attraction to have an off season. I know the Dells is known for their boat rides and outdoor activities, so I expected those to be closed ... what I didn't expect was the restaurants, and shops to be closed. It was VERY surprising.

BUT, despite the very off season vacation, we had a lot of fun! It was a very relaxing few days!!!

Waiting to take the tour at the White House Exhibit ... it was not what we expected, LOL.

Wisconsin Cheese Store! 
This was not the place we had the best cheese, but was fun to look around ...

A yummy family style rotisserie chicken dinner at Buffalo Phil's. 

Pretty unexpected deer on the side of the road during out hour drive to House on the Rock.
Despite every sign saying Open Year Round, they were closed. {LOL}

Where David works is much larger. ;)

A giant troll in a shop we looked at ... it was pretty cool, and reminded us of an underground troll we visited in Seattle a few year ago.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden, and would HIGHLY recommend it.
The service was friendly and great, food super yummy, and it has a BALCONY!!!!
The balcony wasn't used as much as we would like because it was COLD ... but the morning before we left was beautiful, and I couldn't help taking a few photos of my sweetheart!!!


While on vacation I also noticed how much my belly is really growing. 
Here is my 17 week photo ... and baby is certainly there!!! :)

How far along {in photo}? 17 weeks in photo but 18 weeks today!

Cravings: SWEETS SWEETS SWEETS!!! anything and everything sweet! {LOL} Rice Krispy Treats, Banana Laffy Taffy (and even the occasional "illegal") Frozen Coke. ;)
Biggest Moment: 2 weeks away from finding out babys gender!!!!!!!
Movements: anytime now ... {hopefully ...} I maybe might of felt something this morning, but I'm not for sure ... I will keep you posted.
What I'm looking forward to: painting at the new house!!!!
Baby's Milestones: Many of the bones in baby's body are starting to harden. Among these first bones to develop is the inner ear which is part of the reason why baby might be able to hear sounds such as my heart beating or my tummy growling.


  1. I meant to tell you this yesterday, but when I felt Brinley move for the first time it was more like a twitch not a flutter like most people describe. After awhile it was a mix of flutters and twitches.
    Hope you feel your Little One move real soon!!

  2. That is how it felt ... I think LOL. Like my stomach was twitching a little. I haven't felt anything since ... we shall see!!!

    BY THE WAY, it was GREAT seeing you and Brinley Sunday!!!!!!! :)
