Wisconsin Take 1

So I've been putting off this post because it's gonna be a big one!!!  2 weeks ago we spent 7 glorious days in Crivitz, Wisconsin where time was slower {in a great way}, the sun wasn't nearly as hot as it is in Texas, the lake was inviting, and the sounds of kids laughing was an all day occurrence!!   

For those of you who don't know, Johnny and his family grew up visiting grandparents in Wisconsin.  The entire family would pile into 1 car {6 people mind you} and drive all the way up there to stay for weeks at a time!  We took our first trip there 3 years ago when Joey was 3 months old, and we couldn't wait to take her back when she could actually do stuff :]  So here goes, my attempt to show you how much fun we had while we were there.....

Our flight was super early, and our good friend Brandon woke up with us and drove us to the airport.  Johnny refuses to check anything since you have to pay for it, so we sent the big stuff with family who were driving while Johnny, Joey and I each had a rolling carry on suitcase, and a back pack.  We also gate checked both of the girls car seats and sammy's stroller...OY!  Joey was such a trooper and wheeled her suitcase and wore her backpack the entire time!!!  I'd say we were quite the spectacle....what do you think???

 Johnny had this genius idea to strap the car seats to our suitcases!  He's so smart :]

All our ducks in a row!  Sammy was a "lap child"but her tiny hiny fit right by her sister's :]  They did great on the flight :]  Anyone every heard of Zoobles??  These things were golden on the trip...thanks Grandma!!!

 After a 2.5 hour flight and a 4.5 hour drive, we finally made it to the house :]  Here's our room...we had the pack n play for Sammer, and the blow up twin bed for Jo....Still room to move around :]

Our awesome bathroom with the jet tub :]

Stand up shower too :]

The living room {this was the cleanest it was all week since Mac and Dakotah took over and this ended up being their bedroom :]}

Our kitchen...

I'm so excited to be in Wisconsin!  Can't you tell?!?

Well, that ends day 1....I'll have to get back to you for the rest of the vacation!  It get's better :]
