Wisconsin Love: Part I
First of all may I say, Montana is still sitting very securely as my #1 favorite place in the whole world, er continental United States. But northern Michigan, and Wisconsin are edging in!!!!!!! This last part of our trip has been SOOOOO beautiful and amazing! Wow.
Wisconsin is our #45th state in our journey so far. I have to tell you, I cannot fathom that we have been doing this for a year and a half almost. It literally feels like we left for summer vacation a couple months ago, and never went back to reality!!
This photo is missing the Wisconsin pin, but it's on there now! :)
I'd love to see your family experience the gift of TIME, and FREEDOM.
How about having some extra OPTIONS? Options are a beautiful thing.
We are always looking for passionate people to run this race with! And I promise, if RV life isn't for you, you can live at home at still be financially healthy with doTERRA! :)

That was a Bunny trail, but one I am so so passionate about, aaaaaaand we are BACK to Wisconsin!
So, what's the FIRST thing you do as soon as you get your RV set up for the week at your Wisconsin RV park?
You go find CHEESE.
You ARE in Wisconsin, after all!
We dropped down into WI from the Upper Peninsula. Our first stop was Peshtigo RIver RV Park in Crivitz, WI. Turned out it was one of our favorite ones yet! Probably because of THIS little beauty just a hop skip and a walk away from our spot.
With no essential oil classes on the books until later in the week, we pretty much spent all day, every day, HERE. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
And it. was. AWESOME.
We floated. We fished. We ate lunch on a picnic blanket. Kids Crawdad hunted. We fished and floated some more. We pretty much spent 3 days alone on this river. AMAAAAAZING!
The last day, was warm enough, we did a family swim in the strong current. Strapped on some goggles and headed under, letting the current push us like some amazingly fast swimmers! We could see the fish and rocks below us in the golden water, and it was CRAZY and CREEPY and AWESOME all at the same time.
I also want to note, for memories sake, that this trip was when Destiny asked if she could start menu planning with me, shopping for the ingredients and making supper by herself once a week or so.
My kids have always loved to bake and help make food, but out of all of them, Destiny was the least interested. Until now!
She selected and made our favorite Creamy Tacos! (https://4littlefergusons.wordpress.com/2012/09/17/mrs-bs-creamy-tacos/) Destiny also made a Peaches and Cream pie for dessert! Mmmm! (https://4littlefergusons.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/peaches-cream-pie/)
She was SO proud, and I was too. My little girl is growing up, and its really really special....
After this we had a weekend worth of classes in Medford, with Miss Linda, and our awesome growing team there, so it was time to head out.
We immediately loved the FEEL of Medford, reminded us of home in the midwest. We also loved being parked at the little county campgrounds, all by our lonesome.
Medford is a precious, little, quaint town. We rode our bikes to the grocery store, visited the farmers market right on the fair grounds Saturday morning, and had some amazing fresh Wisconsin cheese brats, sweet corn, thick slabs of tomatoes, cucumber salad with a watermelon eating contest for dessert, thanks to our farmers market finds.
No pics, just was present. :) That's good too!
I have pretty much eaten my weight in cheese since we got here.....SEVERAL TIMES OVER. I adore a good high quality cheese, and I haven't tasted anything like what I am eating here.
Oh, and the CHOICES! I know we must have looked like tourists in the grocery store staring, slack jawed, at the local cheese section that LITERALLY WENT ON AND ON AND ON in the back refrigerator section of the store!
The smoked string cheese is the winner so far, with buffalo curds a close second!
After this, we headed to Alma Center and Black River Falls, then Warrens. I think the hills and forests really surprised us! We were imagining Wisconsin to feel like Ohio, flat farm lands.
Nope! Tons of valleys and big green hills, you can see farms along the side of the road with their crops stretched up the hill at an angle to the very top.
This is so full of photos already, I think I will continue tomorrow instead of packing more in here....
See you again, soon!
