Hello! Continuing on…We left Hertel Sunday morning and went to visit my brother near Chippewa Falls.  We stopped at a lake to cool off. That’s where the first three pictures were taken. The visit was great, we played a long game of cribbage and Jack was very entertaining to say the least. We then headed south, not exactly sure where we would spend our last night of vacation ( I prefer to plan, Eli likes to “see what happens”). We decided on Wisconsin Dells. Wow! What a place! I hadn’t been there since my childhood. It is now becoming a children’s Las Vegas! I was surprised how giddy I got. The inner child in me had to be restrained by my adult self- the largest waterpark in america is here; an upside down white house with a dinosaur breaking through called Top Secret, a sort of spy type museum/playground; the largest mini golf park I’ve ever seen; and a space museum that held a replica of sputnik and the russian Mir space station module. I can’t wait until Jack can see this! Anyway, we stayed at a cute little motel, ordered the worst chinese of our lives and had a nice time driving through the town and playing on the motels’ playground (pictured). The next day we went to a 50’s diner for breakfast.  As you can see Jack did not want his picture taken with Elvis (Grandma B will not like this). We then headed toward Madison, stopping at Dr. Evermore’s forevertron- a scrap metal art park. Absolutely phenomenal. Had a nice picnic in Madison on Lake Monona and headed home. Ahhh summer…. how I love thee….until we meet again…XOXO, Erika
