I had yet another eventful weekend – so let's get to it!
If you're unfamiliar, my good friends Ali, Kast, and I created a summer bucket list of things to do during our last summer all together. The first item we crossed off a few weeks ago, and this weekend we crossed off two more: Wisconsin Dells and going to a trampoline park.
Saturday, a group of us headed up to the Dells to knock out two of our items. Kast scored us $10 tickets to Mount Olympus Amusement and Water Park, which are usually $45! Although it was a great deal, everyone and their mom knew about this deal as well – and it was incredibly packed. Lines for nearly all rides were at least an hour. We weren't able to do the water park, unfortunately, because there were just way too many people. We did manage to go on the main roller coasters and did one of the go-kart courses. The roller coasters were fun, but they were wooden, and my neck and back are still paying for it today. I had never done go-karts before by myself, so that was also a fun first! Also, I did NOT get sun-burnt – which is always a win in my book!
After Mount Olympus, we went to the trampoline park (also in the Dells). I'd never been to a trampoline park before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The minimum amount of time to go for was 60 minutes. We all knew we wouldn't need 60 minutes – but we underestimated how tired we'd get, so quickly. We went for probably just over a half an hour, which was more than enough. There were a few rooms - one with basketball hoops, one with a foam pit, a big open room with trampoline floors and walls, and a netted off room for dodgeball. We spent time in each room, but my favorite was probably dodgeball (my team was victorious). Ali and I also went back to our cheerleading roots and tried our hand at a few of our signature jumps again.
Everyone had the best time, but we were all so exhausted by the end of the day. We had planned to go out for drinks that night, but everyone passed out a shortly after getting home. And boy, do I still hurt. I guess that's what happens when a bunch of twenty-somethings spend the day doing the activities of an 8 year old.
Here's what the list looks like now (we're almost half way done!):
1. Go camping
2. Adventure Day in Dubuque - DONE!
3. Trampoline Park Day - DONE!
4. Adventure Day in Chicago (including but not limited to: shopping and the bean!)
5. Wisconsin Dells - DONE!
6. Beach Day!
7. Go to a baseball game
8. Tropical Vacation
Up next: Mexico and Chicago Adventure Day! Stay tuned for more!
Until next time–
