Food find: Kalahari

I was so excited for Tim and I's second vacation in the Wisconsin Dells. This time, we got a great deal at the Kalahari resort, which has the America's largest indoor waterpark.

We also got a free update to a nicer room because it was a little empty the day we arrived. But, since it was so close to Christmas, there was all kinds of holiday activities going on. First, there were reindeer outside for kids to pose with. There were also baby tigers and a kangaroo that kids could pose with. Santa was on hand several times per day and kids could get a bedtime story from elves and check out massive gingerbread houses in the lobby. Adorable!

The Kalahari designed it's lobby to be sort of like a mall -- there's a pottery place, two convenience stores, a caricature artist, restaurant and this sweet shop. It was ridiculously overpriced but Tim and I shared a brownie explosion sundae for $6, which had a brownie covered with vanilla ice cream, hot chocolate syrup, chopped nuts and whipped cream. It was way more than enough for two people. We also decorated our own Christmas cookies in the lobby one afternoon. The resort provided some delicious and cute toppings, like these tiny candy canes that tasted like peppermint.

More about things around the resort tomorrow!

Good grief! Now that's a gingerbread house - I feel quite inferior now....
