Vacation Up North

Highlights of our vacation in the Northwoods.  We visited the Camp 5 Logging Museum in Laona and rode the Steam Engine that is 101 years old!  In addition we visited the Rhinelander Logging Museum which is billed as the Oldest Logging Museum in the world. Madison enjoyed seeing the train run on the 1930’s – 1950’s model of Rhinelander.  What would a trip to Rhinelander be without some fine food.  We went to The Haven for some pizza, Paul Bunyan’s Cook Shanty for breakfast and even drank an Old Fashioned at the Cross Country Bar.  While in Minocqua we went to Wildwood Wildlife Park And Nature Center (The old Jim Pecks) and were able to interact with some animals a little closer than we usually do at the zoo.  We visited Merrill where we got to spend some time with Scott’s Godmother, Mary Jo and enjoyed taking a dip in her pool. We also went to the Lincoln County Fair.  One last highlight was taking the River Boat Queen down the Wisconsin River for a sightseeing cruise.  Madison enjoyed the boat trip and was able to spend some time with Grandpa Dick and Grandma Chris.  A big thanks goes out to cousin John for letting us use his home for the week.

Week 29

What a great week.  We spent Father’s Day with by going for a walk to the park and took him out to dinner at the Milwaukee Ale House.  Madison started her playgroup this week and meet some new friends.  Most of her new friends are a couple of months older than her but she still likes making new friends.  Madison is doing a great job sitting up now, and is more comfortable on her stomach in the attempts to push herself up. Dad and Madison found a new group called Hike It Baby, they went on their first hike this week with other kids her age.  The week ended with some friends at Hoyt Park.

Week 27

Can you believe it Madison is 6 months old?  Wow how things have changed for us.  Madison is enjoying tummy time more and more each day.  Madison is getting really good at sitting independently.  We have noticed that Madison can’t keep her toys out of her mouth, could teeth be coming soon?
