Took to the flower garden that the in-laws had and 
grabbed several pics.

The wren's were taking in some food... were the hummingbirds.

Stump removal and our trip

Before we left for Wisconsin, the tree person came
to remove our stumps. Or I should say grind them.

Platteville, WI is famous for the mysterious "M" on 
the side of a hill.

We arrived at Lake Kegonsa and the first thing from
the kids was, "Can we go on a boat ride?"

Springers Restaurant and their Friday evening
"Fish Fry".

The shoreline on the south-side of the lake.

This would kill my legs.

Love the stonework.

A nice look west(two pics)

Someone waterskiing, before the wipeout.

Got the firepit going and the kids roasted
marshmallows(see "Boat ride, marshmallow roast").

More to come.
