Family Vacation 2015

So early this summer we took a family vacation; my parents, my sister’s family, and us.  We went to Dubuque, IA and stayed at Grand Harbour Resort and waterpark.  It was so much fun!!  We played at the pool, went to the MIssissippi River National Museum and Aquarium, and also went to Galena, Illinois.  The kids did great and we had a great time.  Here are some pictures I snapped during our time there (mostly at the museum because I was to busy swimming with Makayla to take pictures 🙂 )

These next photos are from the children’s part of the museum where you could feel different things, and play in the water tables, and see different animals.

So we lost the boys for about 15 minutes and turned out inside this building you could walk through to go to the aquarium portion was a walk through of a ferry boat.  So we found them and all walked through it together.

The aquarium portion.  The kids loved it!  Makayla sat and talked to the fish and otters forever!
