2001 January - Wisconsin Super Weekend
Our weekend began at Cascade Mountain Ski Resort in Portage, Wisconsin. The weather was clear and sunny, all trails open, temperature in the upper teens and twenties. Boys were half skiers and half snowboarders. Some were first timers on a hill. Those new to skiing had lessons, while others ventured straight to the high hills. The day was full of fun and downhill adventure.

We enjoyed a dinner of fried chicken and stayed overnight at a hotel with indoor pool. The boys enjoyed the pool they shared with a girl's volleyball team who were also staying at the hotel.

The morning was sub-zero temperatures. After a hot breakfast we set out to Kalihari Indoor Water Park. The large water park provided many water activities to choose from. The wave pool and water slides were fun, but the Flowrider was the most popular. It provided 50,000 gallons of water each minute flow under you to create a five-foot ocean-like wave. It provided the boys a chance to do some surfing in Wisconsin during January.

We had a late lunch at a buffet restaurant where we listened to the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers playoff game. We continued listening to the game on the way home. We had both Bears fans and Packers fans on the trip. The Packers won an exciting game, taking them to play Pittsburg, and becoming the Superbowl Champions.
