Black Wolf Run

One of the highlights of my trip to Milw to see the kids is my mother daughter dinner at Black Wolf Run where Becky works.  This year Kory, Kate and Andrew joined us for a wonderful meal.  All the girls Becky works with were so friendly and nice to us. It was a special evening.


Pumpkin Carving!

While visiting the kids they each carved their pumpkins and did such a good job, I had to get a picture of each with their pumpkin!

Corn Hole Contest!

This past week was one huge Corn Hole Contest -32 adults and kids were signed up, 16 teams picked and the action began in a double elimination contest.  Some games had parents and kids competing or brother and sister! Here is a picture of my two grandkids Kate and Colton in a hot match against each other.

When the final game was played on Friday afternoon we had a winning team. Here is Laura and Ryan proud winners standing with Tim the mastermind of the contest! Thanks everyone for all the fun!

There’s No Place Like Home!

Especially when home is in Minocqua! I am safely home from vacation, I have downloaded 174 pictures I took and will be adding some to each blog I wrote while I was gone. So please check back tomorrow and you will get to see first hand the fun I had.



My Last day of Vacation


Today was my last day of vacation and I spent it with my son Rick and his family.  We went to his place of work Papa’s Social Club for lunch,  shopped some places we always love, explored a new town, Waukesha.


We then went to Porticello’s for dinner in Oconomowoc.  The dinner was fantastic as was the whole day.  If you are ever near Oconomowoc  you need to try Porticello’s, the food and view of Silver Lake are spectacular.

I will be heading back to Minocqua tomorrow and putting up pictures of all the fun things I did this week. Hope you have enjoyed following along!
