Home Again!

We've been back from our trip to the Midwest for over a week, but it's taken us a while to get organized and back to our normal routine.  It was a fun 10 days and included a quick trip to Door County in Wisconsin.



The trees were just starting to turn colors, and we had some lovely Indian Summer days. There was lots of boat traffic at Sturgeon Bay.



We were on the bridge twice when it opened.  When that barge came through, we were on foot!




After driving all over Wisconsin's thumb, we met my sister and Ted for brunch in Green Bay. They were heading home from their 6000+ mile Canadian odyssey, and we were heading back to Illinois.

More pictures later after we plant the tulip and daffodil bulbs, but I did want you to know that the sweater fit Sophia.  And she approved of the color which is NOT cucumber, it's TINKERBELL green. Whew!

Sounds like a wonderful break and how nice that you could meet up with your sister and hubby. Love the name change for the sweater colour. :-)

You and your sister look a lot alike! Looks like y'all had a good visit.

Sophia looks adorable in her new sweater. Isn't she lucky to have an Oma that knits!

Glad you are home safely. Sophia looks so cute in her new sweater. I like the name she chose for it too.

It sounds like you had a great trip.

I grew up with Door County in my backyard - so beautiful this time of year. Love the sweater, so cute and the model too.

Beautiful fall pictures of Wisconsin. My mom grew up in Wisconsin, but on our trips back, we never did tour "the thumb." I think that's got to go on the list, as I've heard it's really beautiful.

And Tinkerbell green...isn't that just perfect for her! What a cutie. And the sweater is a perfect fit! Yahoo!
