Duck rides at the Wisconsin Dells

So, Jeff's family kept talking about going to the duck rides, and all I could think was "how are we supposed to ride the ducks?"

Well, now I know.


Okay, so it's their promo shot, but I forgot to get a picture of the duck.

So, for those of you who like me didn't know what these were: A duck is an amphibious car that can become a boat. They were used in WW2 and a few other wars, and were decomissioned, and now are here. They weigh like some 7 tons and are fun to ride in.

And for this trip Superman had the kid camera, so I'll give you the ride through his eyes.

The driver seat is fasccinating, and it has an orange bucket which is my new favorite color.

Batman, I swear I wrote this post before. These pictures have all been edited, but no matter how I search my blog I can't find it. Very very weird.

local legend is this is a piano that fell over in a bar fight, that is provided I understood him through the speakers.

Doesn't she look SO tired?

Okay, that's our adventure riding the ducks. I leave you with this fun picture:

It's part of an amusement park there. I think they've built up the Dells to be this huge tourist area. It has waterparks, really cool minigolf courses and all sorts of fun stuff.

I'm probably going to have a bunch of posts out in the next few days just to give everyone a heads up, I want to get out all of the field trip places we went to, and then hopefully this weekend I can post up the useful family stuff.
