1000 Islands And A Drive Home

What are the chances we have French toast two times in one week?

If we had bread in our house more often it would be a regular occurrence.

After breakfast Meadow was up to no good.

I was in the kitchen when I hear Meadow run in giggling. Then I see she has bows on her feet.

The weather was unusually warm and we were in no rush to get home. I suggested going for a walk at 1000 Islands.

The one in Kauakana, not in Canada.

It was the perfect opportunity to try out my new winter hiking shoes from Costco.

It felt more like Easter than Christmas.

I'm not sure if there are actually 1000 islands, but there were quite a few.



After checking the trail map we decided to keep going a few extra miles. Stay on the trail Meadow.

When in the Fox Valley you know a paper mill isn't far out of sight.

We had plans to check out the historical marker which only revealed that there was a road that the traders used to trade with the Natives across the river.

Meadow liked the lookout point better.

Mr. Mike's got a karate trophy on his dash.

When we got in the house we were surprised to see Morgan was over. Even though we hadn't seen her in almost two years it didn't seem that unusual to see her at my parents house.

I then drove home. We took Wisconsin 29 for the first time in forever. We saw a Mexican place. They had a buffet. Brooke ordered something off the menu and  I made the leap. Cross Mexican Buffet off my imaginary bucket list.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
