I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
My dad’s birthday was on Saturday so we decided to spend the weekend at the Wisconsin Dells. It was a fun and non traditional Easter weekend.
My mom, dad, Scott and I headed to the Dells at about noon on Friday. We had to make a pit stop at Super Target in Eau Claire, Wi! Mom needed some Target wine :) Bummer of MN…. Target can’t sell alcohol. So we stocked up for the weekend in Eau Claire.
Our resort that we stayed at was the Christmas Mountain Village. It isn’t like your normal Wisconsin Dells resort…. no waterpark or crazy attraction. It is set up as a bunch of little cottages. Each cottage is split in half. The nice thing is we had a full kitchen so we could cook meals at home.
When we arrived Scott informed me that he had NO wearable jeans. Apparently the pair that I packed him was missing a button, whoops :) And the pair he was wearing was his work jeans so the knees were huge holes. So…. our first adventure was hitting up the outlet mall. Once he got his jeans we headed to Moose Jaws for some pizza and beer.
I tried the Raspberry Beer and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Slightly sweet!!
We started our meal with onion rings!!!! My mom’s weakness :)
And ordered Taco Pizza! I had never had a taco pizza with dorritos on it. Not going to lie I would have liked it better without the chips but it was still amazing!
bahaha we got a kick out of their delivery cars!
After dinner mom and I poured ourselves a glass of wine and headed out for a quick walk.
When we got back we played one of my favorite card games….. Phase 10.
If you’ve never played you need to! It is very fun…. especially if you are playing with someone super competitive like my dad!
This cake was HUGE and since mom, dad and I were starting our Advocare 24 Day Challenge on Monday we had to finish the cake over the weekend! We enjoyed our first piece Friday night and it was AMAZING! I can’t wait to share this recipe with you guys later this week.
Saturday we started our morning with a nice long walk. That ended with drinks.
For our afternoon activity we went go carting!!!!
There are tons of go cart places to choose from in the Dells.
The cars weren’t super fast but we still had fun! It had been a long time since I’ve gone go carting.
After our adventure mom and I headed to the hot tub and dad and Scott went golfing. We finally had some nice spring weather so we enjoyed being outside and enjoyed the warmth. It was sunny enough that we actually got a little tan :)
Saturday night we had lasagna for my dad’s birthday!!! I have an amazing lasagna recipe, which I will share later this week! It is so easy to make and everyone loves it!
Sunday it rained so we decided to go bowling to pass some of the afternoon. Our Sunday dinner was one of our best meals! You know you are going to get good food when the waitress brings out a meat cart to explain eat of the cuts!
Our meal started with a garbage salad! It had romaine, croutons, black olives, bacon, banana peppers, bacon, shrimp, tomatoes, blue cheese and a parmesan dressing! So yummy!!
Mom and I split the butter chicken entree and we ordered asparagus with hollandaise sauce and loaded mashed potatoes as the sides. You orders sides for the table to share!!
The potato side was HUGE!!!!! An entire entree plate filled with potatoes, cheese, thick cut bacon, sour cream and scallions! The picture above only shows half the potatoes, we ate the other half before I took the picture!
I highly recommend going to Kaminski Bros Chop House if you are ever in the Dells!
It was a weekend full of yummy eats and family fun. Now we are on our Advocare 24 Day Challenge and eating clean healthy food! The challenge was much needed after this weekend of eats.
I promise I’ll share recipes this week!
How was your weekend?
