The Farmer and I snagged an invitation to a friend's Wisconsin lake house for a day of fun in the sun. Yes, we're that close to Wisconsin. It's just a hop, skip and a jump to the dairy state. For the past hundred years residents of northern Illinois and Chicago have escaped to Wisconsin for the weekend.
I guess my question is, where do the people from Wisconsin escape to? Chicago?
It's just a day getaway with some good neighbors and friends. The kind of stuff that memories are made of.
I remember back in the day when everyone went on picnics. They were all day affairs old quilts for laying in the shade and napping. There were bats and balls and badminton nets. We all gathered at a forest preserve or local lake and the only cost was the gas and the food, prepared at home and brought along in big red picnic baskets.
I hope you have some equally fun plans for this weekend.
See you tomorrow.
