More Mineral Pt, WI

We are unable to drive by any pool without stopping.

After the fairy house tour we stopped at Soldier's Memorial Park then headed home.  In Dodgeville we stopped at a very old A&W.  You will notice lots of junk food within easy reach of Evelyn.  Don't ever order chicken nuggets at A&W.  I wished we had stopped at McDonald's instead!!

Shake Rag Alley, Mineral Pt, WI

The three of us drove to Mineral Pt, WI to view a tour of "Fairy Houses" at the Shake Rag Alley.
Evelyn found all 24 fairy houses and enjoyed all the other whimsical objects that the grounds surprised us with.  The perfect activity for a 7 year old girl & her grandparents. 

Road Cuts - WI

Every so often, while driving East toward Iowa, we pass these interesting rock formations.  My photos don't do them justice as they were taken from a moving car.

No Need for Craig's List

The perfect table for Laurie's art studio.  Found on the side of the road.  Free!!!  Ted tightened the legs and it's better than new (because it has a story behind it).  I took a closeup of the top because it has no scratches, dings, or stains. 

Congratulations Kevin

We're all proud of your accomplishment and relieved that the D is done.... Yeah!

Mike's Paintings

Pineapple Patti

Remembering a Mother

Right after I clicked the middle photo a hummingbird came to the orange flowers. 
 A good sign!!

More Special Effects

Mike made delicious BBQ'd chicken for Mother's Day

Visit by my cousin, Brian

and his fun loving wife, Cairns.  She is holding a shirt up in front of her because she didn't like the one she had on.  It was appropriate that she visit on Mother's Day as she has 9 children and umpteen grandchildren.  I honestly can't keep track, but Brian and I are going to try to get going on updating our family histories.  We tried to get started 2 years ago but never got up to speed. 

Prime Time for Roses

Untouched by any special effects on the camera.  
Just pure beauty!!
