Better late than never. We went up to Wisconsin in October to celebrate our 5-year anniversary. We left the kids in Canyon and spent a week relaxing and refreshing. We started in Minneapolis with a visit to our good friends who just relocated to the Twin Cities from Fort Worth. We stayed at their cabin for a few days before driving over to Appleton, Wisconsin at the end of the week to celebrate Nate and Kendra’s wedding. We had lots of good food, good beer, and of course all sorts of local cheeses from Wisconsin. Here are a few pictures from our trip.
Jennifer worked on her knitting early and often
We took a walk in a great park near our friends’ house
The fall color was magnificent. Check out this tree!
Here was our view from their beautiful cabin. All we did was sleep, eat, read, knit, watch movies, and canoe around the lake. So relaxing! (We should be receiving our AARP cards soon )
This was my favorite restaurant. An old fashioned drive in with hand made root beer. I stopped in there almost daily for refills.
The food was outstanding!
One day we went over to a state park to do some hiking and take in the fall color. Here we are recreating our honeymoon pose.
Jennifer saw a bald eagle fly over while we were at this scenic overlook.
We had some great German food as several of the local towns were celebrating Oktoberfest.
On the way to Appleton, we visited the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls. The samples hit the spot (even if it was only 10:30am).
This probably summarizes our trip the best. We saw hundreds of big red barns.
We were so busy at the wedding that we didn’t even snap any pictures, but we had a great time catching up with old friends and celebrating Nate and Kendra’s big day.
