Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to post last night. The hotel tells us the fire doors were interrupting wireless internet. Whatever.
Yesterday we drove all the way from Indianapolis to Wisconsin Dells. Our first stop was Normal, Illinois. Yes, the city is called Normal. We stopped there because they have a children's museum that has reciprocity with our local museum. It turned out to be one of the best children's museum's we've been to. We stayed for over two hours, exploring Japan, farming, the human body, and lots of other smaller exhibits. If Port Orange ever creates a children's museum, they will have to take a field trip to Normal.
Our next stop was Madison, WI. We met our good friend Seamus Wedge and his "adopted grandmother" at Ella's Deli for dinner. What a great place! It's insane. They have stuff everywhere. We saw an automated Mighty Mouse (and felt our age when the kids didn't know him) and a carousel. Even though we've been on the carousel at Disney a million times, we let the kids take a ride. It is vacation, after all.
After saying our goodbyes, we drove about another hour to Wisconsin Dells to stay at the Polynesian Hotel. It has indoor and outdoor waterparks. More on that later. We let the kids get in the water for awhile until they fell asleep exhausted at 10 PM or so. It is vacation, after all.
