America's Dairyland

We took our last big summer trip to Wisconsin last month for our cousin Jenny's wedding. The wedding was in Madison and we spent the weekend there before driving up to the Wisconsin Dells for three days of family fun. Never been to the Dells? Imagine Branson, Missouri, only mercifully further away from Arkansas and with a lot more water parks.

Luigi and Henry can't wait to start their day.

No, Henry has not changed his hair style to "the Donald." This is an action shot of him bouncing off the wall of a moon walk. This moon walk was one of many activities at Jenny and Tim's wedding, including face-painting and balloon-animal-making. How fun was it? One of the kids was overheard saying, "this is the best birthday party I've ever been to!"

In the Dells, we found a farm that lets you pick your own raspberries and blueberries. Probably not surprising to learn that the biggest challenge was getting the boys to put the berries in their baskets instead of their mouths.

Someday the mountain might get 'em, but the law never will.

We also played miniature golf...3D pirate-style! Note to anyone who may play golf with us in the future: Henry cheats. He cheats bad.

Please note that "bouncing off the wall" is a literal description.
