Riding the Duck & Photography Museum (Day 3)

At the end of Day 2 we drove to the Dells in Wisconsin to stay at a resort water park. Alex LOVED the water parks! Our place had 3 indoor waterparks that were HUGE! We went 4 times over the 2 days. I enjoyed the water slides and my sister-in-law was great to just get in the water and play with Alex.

We also went on a Duck ride while in the Wisconsin Dells. If you aren't familiar with them, they are a vehicle that travels both on the land like a bus and in the water like a boat. Here's a photo of Alex with her aunt. It was COLD on the Duck - especially when we were going fast and when we were out on the river.

Here's our "crazy" driver who went way too fast for me - but Alex LOVED it.
Some of our view from the river - spectacular cliffs!
I love how the elements have washed away a lot of this cliff and made a beautiful formation.

My nephew at the waterpark. Ain't he a cutie???

We also went to the "old town" district and everyone else shopped while I went to the H.H. Bennett Photography museum. "Photography historians consider Bennett one of the best landscape photographers of the 19th century, considered the "Golden Age of Landscape Photography." Of course, I loved spending time there! It was amazing looking at the old photos and reading about how photographers used to work.

Those cliffs are amazing too. It looks like such a fun afternoon.
And what a cool little museum. You do have a knack for finding cool little places like that. :-)
