Northwoods Wisconsin….how we love you.
If you were to ask Sam or I where our favorite place to vacation is, I’m pretty sure both of us would tell you Wisconsin. It probably seems odd to most people, but to us, those northwoods are filled with the best memories. Memories we want to pass down to our own kids, and relive through their eyes. Sam grew up spending his summer’s at his grandparents cabin in Solon Springs, and my sisters and I grew up spending our summer’s at our grandparents cabin in Phelps, WI. We both have the same nostalgia over those beautiful Northwoods. Skiing, fishing, fort making, family, good meals and stories around the campfire. We might be getting older, but those memories are still as fresh as yesterday. Who knew two kids from California would meet and bond over their love for the cheese state! But every time we go back, it’s just as wonderful as we remember it.
We spent 4 days there, and like always, they went by much too fast. I kind of loved that my cell phone didn’t have service and that there was no computer for me to check my emails on. Unplugging to the fullest is the best way to experience this place anyway. We soaked up a lot of sun and swam in the lake and watched 6 kids under 6 run wild….we laughed with family and ate a lot of meat and didn’t wash our hair…..and it was perfect.
Can’t wait to see you again Wisconsin, and to have a certain little boy meet you too :)
