Reunion Day 6, More Family And Lodge Photos

Lake Delton, WI

54 Deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent.

Today, I've posted some pictures of Linda's sister Nancy and her family. The photo below is of Nancy and her son Fred.  . .. . . . . Um. I mean David. ; )  (Family joke), ; ) David had health problems many years ago and has needed 24 hour around the clock care ever since. He always has either a nurse or Nancy with him, or at least near him at all times.

This is Nancy's other son Aaron, his wife Debbie, sons Peyton, Aidan, Gavin and daughter Karley.

All of Nancy's family live South of Chicago in the Naperville / Plainfield area, fairly close to one another.

I figured that since I'm doing pictures today, I show you some more  views of the Lodge where the reunion is located.

This first one is of the entrance. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see that it's called Glacier Canyon Lodge. Like I've said before, the place is huge and there are many different lodges in this same complex.

The Lodge is so big that the Wisconsin Original Ducks pull up right in front to pick up passengers  to take the ride/tour of the Dells area.

This is a photo of part of the lobby as you walk into the main door.

They even have a grocery / souvenir store inside

A picture of one of the many swimming pools in the complex.

And, of course you can't forget the Arcade where all the kids go to spend their money.

All that along with go-cart tracks, water slides and other attractions makes it possible to take a vacation right at the Lodge without ever leaving. 

Yesterday, Jim and Linda went over to the Lodge in the morning and then in the afternoon drove South towards Baraboo and to the Baraboo Candy Company where Linda bought some sugar free candy. As I understand it, she and Jim stop by there every year. She says that the candy is really good and so she stocks up every time she's in the area. ; )

From there, they went a few more miles South and ended up at Mark's Produce Stand which is along US 12, just North of Baraboo. This is another of their regular stops and they can always count on getting some very fresh produce such as Kohlrabi, sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, and many other items at reasonable prices.

After they finished shopping, they brought all the stuff they had bought back here and put it all away before heading back over to the Lodge.

It was after 10:00 by the time they came back here to the park. Both of them must have been pretty tired because after watching TV for just a short time they went to bed.

Today will be the last day of the Reunion. It sure doesn't seem like it's been almost a whole week already but it has been. I don't know what's going to happen today but I did hear Jim and Linda say that the whole family will probably go to a restaurant this evening for dinner.

Did you know that Wisconsin Dells was founded as Kilbourn City in 1857 by Byron Kilbourn?  The name of the city was changed to Wisconsin Dells in 1931.


  1. I always stop at that candy store for a cow pie fix!

  2. It's always nice to catch up with family. The lodge sounds like a really fun place for the kids.

  3. Looks like alot of fun going on there!! Enjoy!!
