BADGER BADGER BADGER: A general bleg, speaking of amusement parks:
I'm thinking of taking the Earthling clan on a little midwest trip this summer. Specifically, going into and out of Chicago to see the Giants @ Cubs on Aug 8 (looking at you, Marsha!), but we're likely to head up and back to Minneapolis to see friends and see some minor league baseball as well. Two questions:
(1) The Dells: probably two nights at some water park lodge thing -- The Wilderness seems to be the inside track. Last summer we went to Great Wolf Lodge in Washington state, and the kids had a grand time. I know nothing of The Dells, so all comments useful.
(2) The days we will be there, most of the minor league teams in eastern Iowa/far west Illinois will be in town. To the extent anyone has an opinion on Quad City or Clinton or Cedar Rapids as a minor league facility, happy to hear any comment.
