Family weekend

This weekend, we got out of Dodge to join my brother, Andy, and his fiancé, Anna, for a couple of days at this cozy little retreat we found on VRBO. Andy and Anna live in Minneapolis, and with us being in Milwaukee, we were looking for a place about half way in between where we could meet. This little house was perfect! The views were amazing, it sat right on a small lake, and there was plenty of room both inside and out. We had such a great time.

We spent a little time fishing, and I definitely mean little time. An almost two-year-old can only last for so long in a small row boat. During that short time, Callum was able to catch his first fish: a tiny, tiny perch. There were a ton of apple trees on the property, too. Callum loved picking and eating the apples. Andy has a small drone that we spent some time flying. There was plenty of open space for that. We also rode bikes, played horseshoes, relaxed in the hot tub, and played cribbage. The only thing we didn't get to do was finish a 1000 piece puzzle we all spent lots of time working on. So, that'll have to wait until next year.

On the fridge at the house there was a signed Scooter Gennett baseball card that said, "Thank you. Had a great time." Gennett played for the Milwaukee Brewers this year. We took a look at the guest book, and it definitely looked like he stayed at the same house this summer during the MLB All-Star break. My baseball-loving husband really thought that was cool.

So, overall, we all had a wonderful time. We definitely hope to make it back next year, and for more time so we can get lots of "puzzling" in. If you're looking for a nice place to get away to in Northern Wisconsin, let me know and I'd be happy to send you the direct link for this house on VRBO. It really was perfect.
