When I last blogged (3 weeks ago!) we were just leaving the Apostle Islands in northern Wisconsin and heading a couple hundred miles south for some family time. Along with family, we were treated to cooler temperatures. In fact, we did not need air conditioning the entire time we were there. We could open our windows during the day, sleep with a blanket at night and even had to turn the heat on for 10 minutes in the morning to take the chill away! I got used to that :)
We left there Tuesday morning and drove 180 miles south stopping at the Madison KOA for the night. It was hot enough to warrant A/C and we no longer needed a blanket at night. It was still a bit chilly in the morning but that was gone in about 2 minutes. Wednesday's drive was another 180 miles into Illinois where the A/C was definitely needed, the blanket was permanently put away and the A/C had already kicked in before we got up in the morning! Yup, we're back in the 90's again :( It sure was nice while it lasted :)
Our 2 weeks there were full of family time. We attended a family reunion.
We got to see daughter Nicole who was home from Italy for the summer.
We had a scrumptious lunch one day at my niece's house in WIsconsin Rapids. Jen and her husband Matt and their 4 kids (Ethan,Katja, Mya and Landon) bought a 100+ year old solid brick home and are restoring it. Very cool.
We enjoyed a pig roast at my sister and brother-in-law's house.
That was quite the operation, starting with the butchering a couple days earlier, to the early morning start of the roasting last Saturday. It was very, very good and we were even the lucky recipients of some of the leftovers :) Yum!
That about covers it for now. It was a very nice, relaxing time for us. We are currently en-route to the Indianapolis area where we hope to meet up with friends and visit with Rick's sister, Louise and her husband, Glenn.
Thanks for stopping by.
