Not that we plan it but looks like we are down to our once a month blog post. I find it difficult to blog about being home in Wisconsin getting family and friend visits in. Time goes by quick and we just don't do as many interesting things.
We did enjoy our time back home and got in many good visits. We always come up short on a few and are sorry we just couldn't check em all off. But that is a good reason to come back so we look forward to seeing you next year.
We are also bad that we visit, have fun, and then kick ourselves for not pulling out the camera and getting the pics.

We headed out on Oct. 2nd, our plans pretty sketchy only knowing that we will be wintering down by Amanda and Pat's farm in Live Oak, FLA. We want to drive slow hoping to enjoy some fall colors. We plan to keep the drives short in the less than 200 range.
Days one and two were spent driving through Illinois a quick overnight stop at Hickory Hollow Campground Utica ILL. Then to Peaceful Waters Campground in Bloomingdale Indiana. We really wanted to spend time here as there are 31 covered bridges in the area. But the all rain forecast has made a return trip to this area a necessity.
Day 3 we have stopped at Lincoln State Park just outside Santa Claus, Indiana. A very nice state Park with Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial just across the street.
This is a memorial to Abraham Lincoln as he spent ages 7 to 21 on the 160 acre farm. The memorial features some very exquisite relief sculpture works, a small museum, along with recreations of the original homestead.
