July FUN

So 4th of July weekend Ethan and I went to Minocqua, and stayed at Sill's Lakeshore Bed and Breakfast which was AMAZING! The owners were super friendly and helpful, and I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. After booking the place I found out my Mom and Grandma actually stayed there two years ago, which was pretty random. They take pictures of all the guests before they leave and keep them all in photo albums, and the owner was nice enough to search for my Mom and Grandma's picture for me, even though I was a few years off as to when they stayed there. She found the entry but of course it was probably the only guests they didn't have a picture of.

Before checking into the hotel (and about 4 other times over the weekend) we stopped by the Thirsty Whale, which has awesome vodka lemonades, in a bucket, that you can keep! We were also able to watch a waterski team from the deck on one of our visits.

Lake was AWESOME!

Another lake picture...we did some fishing and caught a million little sunfish and Ethan also caught a smallmouth bass (?) and he was even nice enough to put the leeches on the hooks for me because I wasn't touching those slimy, squirmy, little blood suckers.

Even though this picture is dark, it's one of my favorites from the weekend.

Ethan petting some goats at Wildwood Wildlife Park. This place was pretty awesome, like Wilderness Walk but bigger. I stayed away from the bird section, because apparently I got bit by a crazed bird when I was here when I was about 3.

We did alot of walking around downtown and did some shopping, and ate some awesome food. There was a popcorn store (!) which we got a mix of jalapeno and caramel popcorn, which sounds odd, but was awesome! We also saw a good cover band, which I should have gotten the name of....

We also went to Rock Fest in July and saw Chevelle, which was super awesome, and went to Country Jam for a day, I'm pretty sure the only music I actually watched there was The Dweebs, who I didn't even know were playing. We also ate a ton of food..there's nothing like fair food....gyros, mega corn dogs, cheese curds, funnel cakes, pop corn.....I'm hungry just thinking about it all again.
