Our next stop took us to Cincinnati, Ohio and a great visit with more family! In this pic is our beautiful daughter Kim and her kids, Ashlee and Hoot. Don't we have the most beautiful kids and grandkids? Prejudiced, you say? I think not! Ashlee and Poppie relaxing! Ash will be a freshman at Lake Erie College in the fall. Very proud of her! She is not only beautiful, but smart too! Hoot will be a senior in high school this fall and also taking advanced college courses! He is scoping out colleges in Florida right now. Quite a bright young man, even if he does resemble a California surfer dude!
Just had to include this pic of the Amish carriages tied up at the hitching post outside a supermarket! The Amish people and how they live still fascinate me. On the road again heading for Wisconsin and more adventures.This is Walt's brother, Tom and his wife, Lynn. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend some quality time with them during our time in Wisconsin. It gave us a chance to catch up on old times. Tom and Lynn were wonderful hosts as well as tour guides. We certainly enjoyed our time with them. Lots of good times sightseeing and good food too! Lynn is a whiz in the kitchen. Best salad dressing in town! She was even nice enough to share her recipe with me! We also met some friends and neighbors of Tom and Lynn's - Bill and Lynn Barrett. Of course that means more food and good times!We girls let the men have some "guy time" alone. They spent the afternoon at Lambeau Field touring the facility and enjoying the ambiance. Walt was especially impressed by the tunnel where the players pass through when entering the field. It is equipped with a sound system that lets you hear the roar of the crowd in the stands.The Wilson brothers outside their empire? Don't know about that, but the ice cream sure was tasty!
We had gorgeous weather during our visit and took advantage of it! We drove up to Door County (how appropriate for Walt) and took the ferry across Lake Michigan to Washington Island. Beautiful scenery, relaxing time. We made a few stops at some of the shops along the way and thoroughly enjoyed our day.
We also got to visit with Tom and Lynn's daughter Dianne, husband and cute little granddaughter, Eleanor. All in all, we had a really great time in Wisconsin! Next stop - Sault St. Marie, Michigan! Our wish for all of you who may read this, is that one day you too will be fortunate enough to live this kind of life and enjoy seeing this beautiful land of ours.
