I have finally gotten around to posting pictures from my wisconsin vacation. It was a blast and I would move back there in a HEARTBEAT!
My Grandparents cottage in the middle of an indian reservation. My mom grew up going to this house since she was 12 years old. They went every weekend! It's one of the most beautiful places you could be at!
Isn't this amazing? It's a bald eagle. I borrowed the neighbors zoom lens and put it on my camera and I really did get some GREAT shots of him. He was really calm and let us get up so close to him.
Stephen and I's bounty for the week, AKA - all the fish we caught. We wish we did better but we did what we could, it was a lot of fun! It definitely brought back memories of my childhood.
My Mamie and I her pontoon boat.
My grandparents live on a lake and the lily pads were definitely in high volume. They were really pretty when they were all clumped up together. The brush in Wisconsin is VERY green and lush, something you don't see very often in Texas, well, Houston.
What is this you ask? Oh, it's a camel! In Wisconsin! On the side of the road! His name is Humphrey. It was a sweet guy.
Our first venture out on the canoe to go catch some fish. 5 mins after this picture was taken, it POURED RAIN. I'm talking hurricane down pour of rain. It was HORRIBLE. It was raining so hard that I couldn't even open my eyes to row, haha! We ended up going back in and when we got to the dock, it stopped raining. It was quite the adventure :)
This zebra was at the same place as the camel...
My family and I's first home! My parents built this house and it was their pride and joy. I love this house! It had a basement, HUGE backyard. We had horses next to us in the pasture, we made snowmen every winter, oh it was the best!

Disclaimer : No, he did not eat the fish! It was all for the dramatic effect! Did it work?
I caught the very first fish of the week on my MICKEY MOUSE fishing pole. This was my VERY FIRST fishing pole, EVER. I keep it at the lakehouse and when we go their for vacation I ALWAYS fish with it on the dock. It definitely means a lot and I hope one day, my kiddos will be able to use " moms fishing pole" .
Hope you enjoyed just a TID bit of what my 10 day vacation was all about. I know when you think of Wisconsin you think or beer, brats and maybe fat people? Well, Wisconsin is a beautiful state full of cool weather, down to earth people, green land, good food and pretty scenery. There's no place like home.....
