George’s sister Laurie and her husband, John live on a lake near Wilmot, South Dakota. It is really out in nature with not a lot of people. On our travels from Wisconsin we were able to stop and see them. This was the first time visiting them at their beautiful home they had built and they have lived there six years! This is one of the excellent reasons to have a motor home, it takes us to family we love and that fills us with happiness.

Vacationing with the Family in Wisconsin
To end our summer in Madison, we all decided to go to northern Wisconsin and rent a cabin on a lake. George and I were going to take off after our vacation with the family and head out on the road again. So we drove our RV towing our car and the best part was our grandkids rode along with us. Plus their dog Hotdog.
The first night of traveling we stayed at Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest on Black Lake. Andy, our son-in-law’s favorite lake in Wisconsin. There are no houses on the lake so it makes it very special and the loons were calling in the morning and the evening. I love me a loon!
Just by chance we were asked if we were interested in hosting at Lake Mendota Park in Madison. We decided to give it a shot and we started hosting on July 14th, 2017. Our last day of hosting is August 9th, 2017. Today’s date is the 28th of July, so we have been hosting for 2 weeks. I thought I would give it a couple of weeks before I posted anything about hosting.
I know it has been awhile since I added a new post but I write when it is meaningful to me. We are back in Madison where my daughter Jamie, her husband Andy and their two children, Graham and Alex, our beautiful grandchildren live. I had the honor of caring for the kids when they were born.

I like to tell people my husband, George and I are fine tuning our Love-Hate relationship. All you housewives out there know what I mean. Especially able to perfect this when you live in a motor home full time with each other and three small pets, Gizzy, our pug and Olive and Pickles, our parakeets. George screwed a hook into one of the old plastic antenna covers in the ceiling. So their cage is off the ground and we don’t have to have a bird stand. We had started out with one. It is fun how you come up with the simplest ideas that work great and function well in a small space.
