Up North

I love "up north". I love the trees, cool breeze, ample lakes, and relaxed atmosphere. We were able to spend some time with AJ's sister Sam, her husband Jamie, and their two boys Jakob and Seth last weekend. Coincidentally, they live "up north".

This is the view from Sam & Jamie's deck. It was also the view from our bedroom. What a wonderful way to wake up each morning.
We took a trip to Madeline Island, part of the Apostle Islands, in northern WI. If you're ever in that part of the country I recommend you check it out.

Tom's Burned Down Cafe. VERY cool, eclectic place!

Tom's has several of these signs hanging all over the place. This one was my favorite.

A beach on Madeline Island. Sidney is trying to put a feather in the water.

I found this little guy walking down to Sam & Jamie's dock.

Thanks for the wonderful weekend Shaw family! We had a great time.
