Wisconsin, July 2014

Jute Lake, Wisconsin, 7/1-6/2014

We snuck a last minute five-day-long weekend trip to Wisconsin over 4th of July. Courtney, Grace and Sophie picked me up at work on Tuesday around noon and then we picked up Claire in Lakewood and drove to Rockford getting there around 11:00PM. Up early the next morning and were at the Boulder Beer Bar by noon.  We didn’t do much at all during our four days/four nights there. The typical places to eat (Bent’s Camp twice), relaxing on the dock, kayaking, cookout at the campsite and enjoying the peace and quiet.  The bugs were horrific unfortunately and we couldn’t go on our typical walks through the woods as you would get swarmed by mosquitoes. Bummer.  We drove straight through on Sunday via Milwaukee through downtown Chicago and didn’t have any troubles.
