I love road trips! I love summer road trips with my kids.
Yesterday we had an adventure to Minoqua, Eagle River and Hazelhurst.
We started out with some rather dicey weather here in southeastern Wisconsin that turned into the most beautiful day up north!
On Highway 51, we watched (and laughed hysterically) when a crop duster plane, who was practicing his maneuvers, buzzed the oncoming traffic. I'm glad I was in the outgoing lane. Eek. Funny for us. Not so much those other guys.
In Minoqua, we left some books at the Book World and knocked around a bit. It's very pretty up there. Have been all over Wisconsin but never there. Very nice. We'll have to go back and stay longer. If you want to check out the store locations - click Book World
After that, we headed over to Eagle River and to a local radio station. A friend of mine is the Program Director for several stations and offered to put us all on the air and talk about the book. How cool was that? The DJ's name is Mike Wolf and the station is WRJO-Oldies. If you google it, you can listen online anywhere. The link is here - WRJO
The kids got a kick out of it and I guess I probably did too. The station is located inside an old bank building. Kiera was expecting it to look like the set from Frazier. Yeah, maybe in the big city.
After the interview we drove to bustling downtown Eagle River and dropped off some books the Book World - Check it out if if you're up there - Book World
The final destination of our trip was an old friend's house. Our foster dog, Chancey, if you remember him from the book, lives up there and we couldn't go all that way and not stop in to see him and his family. It was great to see them. At the outset, he didnt remember us. Who could blame him? Both kids have grown and changed significantly in three years - he growled a little at Connor. After some bribes of dog treats, Connor and Chancey were buddies again.
It was sad to leave all of our friends in the north, but we had to head home.
So here's to road trips, seeing old friends and bad Karaoke in the car. YIKES!
Thanks for reading and Hope to see you this weekend at Taste of Lake Country in Pewaukee on Saturday!
