Midwest Odyssey Part 2

First, I would like to say Happy Birthday Alesandra! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

So after we left Illinois, we headed up to Wisconsin which is where I am from and where much of my family lives. First we stopped by my dad's and then we went to my brothers. We also had pizza from our favorite pizza place in Wausau, Sam's pizza, it is thin, greasy but crispy and very delicious.
A picture of us with my grandparents, my grandma taught me how to knit and crochet.

We did go out on the boat and my dad pulled my niece and nephews in the tube. The weather was intermittently cloudy and cool and we rode in the boat but the water was so so cold, and then we had to leave because it started raining.
A rainbow after the rain. Orla was very excited.

Here we are all talking to my sister in Spain on Skyppe twice, with my dad and then later with my mom. My brother Craig with his son Marshall and daughter Kala. Oskar was hiding so, here he is in this next picture.

This is my dad's German long haired pointer, Sadie, she is very entertaining.

My dad with his other dog, a scottie named Igor.

Out on a walk after a rain.

Orla and I did sneak away to visit Herrschners but that is for another post.
