A few Sundays ago I headed up to Wausau, Wisconsin with the kids to visit my parents and little brother. It was a gorgeous day for a 450 mile drive. And the kids did awesome!
I went for a couple runs in beautiful Wausau. I found a house along the river that I’m pretty sure I’ll buy, you know, it’s only $450k. But it has gas lamps at the end of the driveway! This is the hill my parents live on, it’s very steep.
We went to the Farmer’s Market on a very cold day. And we indulged in some delicious organic cider, pressed the night before.
We spent a lot of time relaxing around the house, playing with grammy’s toys, watching movies, playing soccer in the back yard, and deer watching.
And I was introduced to Steven’s Point own CiderBoys cider. So incredibly nom, I had to bring back a couple 6 packs.
The highlight of the week was visiting Rib Mountain. Ryan stayed home with Uncle Ben while Grampy, Grammy, Katie and I hiked through the rocks and trees. It was beautiful though windy and cold. Poor Katie didn’t have a winter coat yet (we actually purchased one later that day, ha!), but she was a trooper.

Our lovely day ended with an outrageously lovely sunset in my parents back yard.
We had a great week hanging out with my folks and look forward to our next visit. Thanks for having us, Mom and Dad!
