Many years ago our entire family went on a cabin vacation farther north in Wisconsin. My dad took Isaac out on the boat fishing and they found this rock in my dad's boat. Isaac asked my dad..."Who's Rock in the Boat?"--he thought it was hysterical because he was a total punster. So he painted the words on the rock...this thing has been sitting at the cottage now for probably 13 years!! But a fun reminder of my daddy and his dry sense of humor!
On to our daily adventures...In the morning, Linda, Grandma and I headed out on a journey to go to find a cool candy store in Montello. There is a beautiful waterfall in the middle of this quaint town which is really a throw back to days gone by.
We used to go to here all the time. I remember it being cheap. Not so much anymore.
These mints have a story. There was an elderly man that lived near us in Fond du Lac where I grew up. His name was Mr. Curry. He was a rather tall man and had a strong personality, but he was also very kind to me. He always had these mints and would give them to me. So when I saw them at the store I had a total flashback to my childhood and this sweet old man. The mint is harvested in the area, thus the name "Montello Mints".
We stopped for lunch after getting a tad lost for a while in search of the Amish Grocery Store. Only in Wisconsin do you get
Beer, Brat and Cheese Soup!
It was AWESOME!
not something you see everyday...
I had dinner with my "besties" Khris, Kristen, and Janice from college. Love my ladies!!!There's just something about having "history" with people that makes life so good! And Kristen is an amazing cook!
Lucas stayed with Oma and Opa while I was gone but ended up at the cousins house overnight. Love that he can do that here...
