We were invited to Marina's birthday party this year. Since we haven't been to one of her parties in a long time we thought we would go this year. Originally Marina wanted a waterpark birthday. After finally deciding on a weekend we were the only ones that could go. She had her official party the previous weekend and was going to spend this weekend with us.
Water park, water park!
After passing this place for many years we finally made the stop at Fannie's Supper Club in Neilsville.
Love when the Supper Club decor is on point and the food is great.
I say this a lot, but a top 10 Wisconsin Fish Fry.
This place was your prototypical Midwest supper club.
I want to stay at the neighboring motel which is equally Wisconsin mid-century sophisticated.
I got to say, we always have fun staying at Grandpa and Grandma's even though the cottage gets all of our attention.
Always a favorite, pancakes by Grandpa.
We went back and forth on what to do for the day. We thought going to the Packer's Hall of Fame would be fun, then changed our minds last minute and headed to Oshkosh for the EAA Museum. I don't think I've been here since 5th grade.
I guess the kids aren't used to museums again and were quickly bored. Luckily there was a kids scavenger hunt to keep them busy.
I was having fun. I also hadn't been here for like 30 years. Seeing all the crazy aircraft made me feel like a child.
The old army planes were also cool to see.
We didn't realize there was a kids area until the end. Now they were having fun. Theo would've sat in this airplane all day.
Sorry, kids, but we're pacifists.
I may have had fun in the kids area too.
G.G. went missing and finally showed back up when we lost Brooke, Meadow and Mike.
Sometimes I wish I could fly planes. It would be sooo convenient to fly to the cottage instead of driving.
After the museum we were getting hungry. We headed over to Fox River Brewing Co. While waiting to be seated we saw there were domes outside. I've always wanted to eat in one of these.
When did Detroit-style pizza take over?
The kids got ice cream with their meal. Why don't adults get ice cream when we eat all our food?
Eating in a dome ✓
It's entertaining. I try to get him to do it at our house, but he doesn't quite get using Chromecast.
Brittany and Marina came over and gave Theo his belated birthday gift. A tool box for all his art supplies.
Meadow doesn't like to share her fancy art supplies with Theo. So he has his own.
We went up to Green Bay to enjoy an indoor waterpark for Marina's belated birthday. Both Brittany and I wanted to try out Kroll's West for lunch.
Brittany recommended we try this place the next time we go to Bay Beach. I mentioned it to Scott and he knew all about it thanks to his Packers podcasts.
Decent burgers and fries, but nothing special.
We got to the hotel waterpark and went to the front desk to get our passes. When I gave my credit card to pay the front desk the guy said,"Your hoodie is too dope. You get in for free." I mean my Packers hoodie is dope.
And then she went over and over again.
The kids were not into the "kiddie" area. Too much water being splashed.
Brittany recently got Animal Crossing so of course I had to stop at her island and steal her fruit.
We dropped Meadow off at Marina's where she'd stay for the week.
Before driving back to Minneapolis we had lunch at Mr. Cinders. I hadn't been here in years, my dad on the other hand is here every other day.
Every single person on the staff knew Mike like a family member.
