Scheer’s Lumberjack Show

We had a last minute visit from our Grandkids Kate and Andrew and we’re having a lot of fun with them. I took them to the Lumberjack Show today and they were given a chance to try and saw a log. It was really fun. A must place to take kids while up here.

This was great fun!

Norwood Pines!

One of our and everyone’s favorite places to eat in Minocqua is Norwood Pines. Not only is the food so good but the atmosphere is always so wonderful.  They decorate their archways for all the seasons so tonight I am sharing a winter picture of Norwood Pines.  (I don’t know who the guy is! )
