A few weeks ago, we went on a trip to the Northwoods of Wisconsin for Mark's fall break from school. It was a good family time. Some friends of ours from Louisville have a cabin there and very generously let us stay there for a few days. I didn't know this area existed before going there, but I am now a fan. The trees were at their peak in color change for the Fall, there are a bizillion lakes in the area, its not very populated, and its just beautiful! Here are a bunch of pictures :)
The girls outside of the cabin. This looks like a really artistic picture - don't be too fooled by it, Anna was crying :)
Did you know that white deer exist? I think they are kind of creepy looking. They exist in large numbers in northern Wisconsin (and probably elsewhere). We also saw a bald eagle! But we didn't get a good picture. It was eating a dead deer and then flew up to a tree.
We went to a nearby zoo. It was fun. We were there on a dress-up for Halloween day with extra activities. It was perfect and they let you get REALLY close to the animals.
They also let you get this close to black bears and feed them out of a glass bottle. We thought this was kind of crazy. Notice the person in the background feeding the bear.
We spent a LOT of time in the car. The girls did relatively well. Hope had a cold and is somewhat dramatic when she has "boogies in her nose." She has yet to figure out how to blow her nose. We'll be glad when she copes with colds better :)
