Every now and then, a short trip out of town is just what one needs. Recently, my family decided to head to Lake Geneva for a few days to get away from good ol’ Iowa. We stayed at the Timber Ridge Resort, which was perfect for the kids. There was an indoor waterpark, an outdoor pool, a petting zoo and an arcade. Everything to keep a kid happy and hyper. The first night, we went to the Next Door Pub and Pizzeria. It was recommended by a relative, and the pizza was yummy. I even decided to attempt a local beer, and then remembered why wine is so much better. After dinner, we went and walked downtown for ice cream and walked along the lake. The next morning was spent on the waterslides (of course). That afternoon we went on a boat tour, that included ice cream sundaes. HJ and my nephew spent the tour looking for sharks, and were convinced they saw at least 80. We were invited to our relatives house for dinner that night. Their house was tucked away in the woods, and the scenery was amazing. We were heading out of town the next day, but made sure to jam pack a few hours. We of course, hit up the waterslides. We ended with a filling lunch of burgers with fried cheese curds and pickles (healthy, right?).
I love having little get aways every now and then to new places. Even if it isn’t exactly relaxing, it was a lot of fun!
