Summer Family Day

We've had a lot of summer visitors, but Ben and I haven't gotten out for any camping, paddling or hiking trips this year. Last Wednesday we resolved to go for one great day out before Ben's school semester started. We took a scenic drive through Monroe, Argyle, Mineral Point and Dodgeville, WI. We stopped at Yellowstone Lake State Park for lunch, ice cream and a hike. Henry wasn't too interested in the bat house program there, but we thought it was pretty cool--especially when the mosquitoes didn't maul us while hiking.



Then we drove near Spring Green to stop on the Wisconsin River. We lounged on a blanket, had a picnic and we did a crossword puzzle in the shade while Henry studied the leaves in the trees.



I didn't capture on film any of the beauty of the driftless region of Wisconsin because I was too busy taking cute baby pictures. I'll have to remember to point the camera away from the baby next time we go on an adventure day.
