Thanksgiving 2016 at Timber Ridge Lodge

Thanksgiving at the waterpark is becoming a tradition for us Calisoffs.

This year we headed up to the Timber Ridge Lodge in Lake Geneva, WI on Wednesday and returned Saturday.

Luckily the kids have not outgrown the waterpark, and in fact this year we realized Jack can run around with any of the kids fairly unsupervised (you can still see glimpses of them and there is only one door in and out). This relieves Adam and I greatly, after Jack runs off with one, we can focus on one kid each.

Ben was still too scared to try the big green slide this year, but the other kids, including the twins, went down it with glee. I think I heard, “Again! Do it again!” a million times from Aaron.

Ben mostly enjoyed the basketball, smaller white slide, the rope climb, and the hot tub. dsc_0079

Occasionally, they all enjoyed something together.dsc_0099dsc_0124

We also spent some time walking around the sister hotel, the Grand Geneva. This was originally the Playboy Club Hotel, and there are still traces of the history on display.

See the playboy costumes in the display case?

To get there, you take a trolley. At night you can see all the Christmas lights on display.dsc_0116

Usually we combine it with a special dessert treat of gelato in the lobby.dsc_0121

Hope everyone reading had a happy thanksgiving and has many things to be grateful for!
