Maiden Voyage

Hubby and I splurged and bought a canoe this year. It was something we had been researching for a while, but just hadn't pulled the trigger yet.

We finally did and took it out on it's maiden voyage a few weeks ago. We went up to Lake Delavan in Wisconsin to the lake house of a friend of the family.

Lake Delavan isn't the most pristine, gorgeous lake, but it was fun to practice paddling away in.

We saw lots of critters - turtles, birds, big fish, and even a deer.

Hopefully more outdoor adventures to come!

Fourth of July

We drove up to Door County, Wisconsin for the 4th of July weekend. We had great weather, fun bike rides (that almost killed me!), artsy shops, pebbly beaches, light houses, goats on a roof, and of course, lots of cherries! Yum!
