(Me on the beach, and my bucket list for this trip layered over the top.)
For the past 6 days, I have been way up in Northern Wisconsin visiting my mom's parents!
Wisconsin is my favorite state that I have ever been in (although, truthfully, I've only been in 5 of the 50). It is absolutely beautiful here! Lake Superior is the biggest (and COLDEST) of all the Great Lakes, and I spent 3 days there this past week.
Family, food, fun -- and mosquito bites, but that sort of comes with the territory.
I got an amazing graduation gift from my Grandma.
I got serious Sister Points. (Happy Birthday, Terese!)
I got a sunburn. (Blah)
I got a carving tool for making rubber stamps.
I got to see my older sister and her boyfriend.
I got to eat a bacon and jelly sandwich (which, trust me, tastes way better than it sounds).
I got to sit for hours and talk to my Grandpa, pretty much the coolest guy on the planet.
I got to talk to my boyfriend on the phone on the 3rd anniversary of him telling me he liked me. <3
I got to see a few illegal fireworks, but some very beautiful (and tall) pine trees prevented me from seeing any of the real displays.
I got a lot of pictures of shoes and feet.
I got to see a bunch of my cousins, and confuse one of them with the color chartreuse.
I got to watch two of my sisters fit their mouths around the rim of a glass cups. (More entertaining then you'd expect.)
I got to watch the movie Wreck-it-Ralph for the second time. ("What's going on inside of this candy-coated heart of darkness!?")
I got to see the art of an internationally famous artist.
And I got to go to Mass in one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen.
It's been a Superior trip so far, and we still have 2 whole days left!
I hope you are having a summer even half as lovely as mine. God bless!
