We had visitors!!

My mom and my nieces, Steen and Kels, came out to visit us. It was a WAY TOO short visit, but we had fun seeing each other anyway. The cousins all got along (nothing new there) and they got to see all our wildlife. They already knew their aunt was wierd! :) Life is more exciting like that!

Anyway, the CA girls went with my girls to school on Friday to experience THAT. We spent a day shopping and on our way to Appleton we went through a little town on Lake Michigan called Algoma.

When we were in Algoma, the lake was very stormy and wavy. The water was splashing over the breakwall (I don't know if that's what it's called, but it sounds very technical, doesn't it?). There were tons of geese out there on the beach. I love watching and hearing them, but MAN, they have big poop! hee hee

We also watched as the water splashed up on the beach and it was freezing almost immediately after it hit the beach. It was really cool. Mom and I went wine tasting up in Carlsville. But I want her to come back in the summer when things up north are open. Most of the peninsula shuts down from Oct/Nov. to May. We didn't get any snow while they were here which kind of bummed us out a little too. Oh well, we had a good time together, just visiting. :)
