Malic Vacation: Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin

For our Malic vacation we all packed up and headed north into Wisconsin. We left on Sunday before Louis and James' birthday. Since we knew we couldn't check into the room until later afternoon we packed up the car and headed to Kohler, Wisconsin to check out the American Club and Kohler Village first. 

He found a ship wheel and was driving

Little sister wanted in on the steering action

The landscaping all around was so pretty!!

After eating lunch at The Horse and Plow (AMAZING cheese curds by the way!) we walked over to the Kohler Design Center/Museum. The kids LOVED this. So many fun things to look at. Plus it made me totally want to gut my bathrooms!!

The museum had an old wagon/fire hose that was used

Practicing some golf...

After our fun little Kohler adventure we drove the 20 minutes over to the Osthoff Resort. It was SO PRETTY. The lake, the landscaping, everything was very nice. 

After unpacking the first thing the kids wanted to do was swim. When Blake did this (he was doing the same thing as Louis!) I almost died laughing....he is truly a mini Louis. 

Blake was very excited he could touch in the shallow end of the pool. 

On Monday it was Louis and James' birthday so of course we had cake to celebrate. 

McKenna getting in on this whole birthday/cake fun!

Later that night Kathy and Bill watched the three little crazies and we enjoyed a nice meal out. I think it was our FIRST EVER double date, um how the heck did it take us so long to do that??

The next morning while everyone else slept Blake and I took a walk out to the pier. Nothing better than early morning lake view with my little man

I have mentioned it before but McKenna LOVES Blake. She is so entertained by him. Blake also just loves to play with her and do silly things with her. Brooke on the other hand, was VERY jealous of McKenna. I couldn't hold McKenna or be near her. If I was by her, Brooke had to be on my lap, essentially blocking McKenna from me. I know in a few short years Brooke and McKenna will be besties but right now it is all Blake and McKenna. 

Hi, my name is Brooke. I refuse to wear swim suits and am only happy if I am wearing swim bottoms like Blake......

This diva refused to touch the sand so instead she ate chips on the beach chair

Being "worker men"

This is what happens when you don't nap....

I ordered the smallest cone they had....turns out that meant double scoop in a waffle cone!

Getting them to both look and smile at the same time should be an Olympic event!

Best family picture we got!

 Getting in one last swim before we had to leave! (see what I mean about no swim suit!!)

Thanks again Kathy and Bill for a great time and great memories!!
