Road trip.

There was a family bridal shower out of town this weekend.

trees & road

I packed up the car and headed for northwestern Wisconsin with my boys and my Mom.

tall trees

Our travels brought us through ten counties...

country graveyard

...and four movies on the portable DVD player. IN TWO DAYS.

trillium

You might think I'm crazy, but it was worth it.

sleeping baby

Saw some family and had a lot of laughs.

country church

Went to a service on Mother's Day in a little country church, where the Sunday school children sang "This Little Light of Mine" and passed out styrofoam cups filled with pansies to all the Moms.

army worms

We got a lot of fresh air...

nick riding

...though back-to-back car rides made us all a bit stir crazy.

hill w/trees

But I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Looks so simple and peaceful. Just from the tone of this post it feels like that trip was a breath of fresh air.

Did you take all those pictures on Sunday? Because Saturday was a good day to be inside!

Northern Wisconsin this time of year is pretty - even with all the Cheeseheads.

Sounds like a nice trip - the intent was nice, anyway. Always nice to see Mom.
