Wisconsin . . . beautiful :O)

Nothing but a good time in Wisconsin . .  One of the days spent there was visiting the "House On The Rock" and Culvers for "butter burgers" and "custard ice-cream".  We ate so much through this entire trip.  But it was so much fun . . . just a good time.

The House On The Rock was built in 1945, by a man named Alex Jordan with a crazy goal to build a retreat from a rock.  There is so much to see and the tour ends with this amazing collection of stuff, everything you can think of including a full carousel.  I absolutely fell in love with the circus collection from the 1940's  and the detail of it was just crazy to see.  The circus collection filled a whole room alone.  In addition to this collection was a huge doll house collection filled with detail and furniture.  Lots of walking and the A/C was not cool enough, I'm glad I wore shorts and flip flops that day.



In this pic above I'm standing in front of a colored glass collection which is displayed in the women's bathroom wall.  Below are the pics from the circus collection, look at that detail.






Our last full day in Wisconsin was spent at EPIC where my son works.  This is a very unique company specializing in healthcare software.  This company is definitely geared towards the new business generation today.  I felt like I was at a farm with a playground.  EPIC grows there own vegetables and has there own dairy.  Check out these pics below.






We ending our evening with a nice dinner at a restaurant called, "The Old-Fashion" outside of the Capital building in Madison.  We tried out the cheese curds there.  The cheese back in California tastes bitter next to the cheese in Wisconsin, oh my gosh, the cheese curds were delicious.



As I end my postings from my vacation this year, I feel so blessed to have the most wonderful children (grown adults) they are so good to me and so compassionate, always making sure that I'm ok and having a good time.  It was never what they wanted to do, it was always what I wanted to do.  My oldest son, Davey had to work and missed out on this wonderful trip, we were really hoping he could have gotten the time off from work to join us but for sure next time he will.  As a Mom of these kids I really feel so blessed  . . . Thank you God :O)
