Road trip wedding

Wedding season isn't finished for us. Amanda, my good friend from high school, got married Friday in Milwaukee. We decided to drive to the Dells Thursday to breakup the trip. Christina enjoyed the outlet mall and Harriet loved the hotel's pool, CASTLE SLIDE!

The Ramada next door had a strange promo going on worth noting (see below). I'm curious how their continental breakfast was. (If you can't read the sign it says: Bring me a pound of bacon and receive 16% off room)

It was nice to get up friday and only have a two hour drive ahead of us.We had a nice lunch with my dad. Harriet seemed to enjoy eating most meals in restaurants. We stayed with my mom friday night and Harriet really liked her sleepover with grandma AKA Bubbe.

The wedding was beautiful. Christina already ranked it top five. The reception was at the Grain Exchange. It was a very grand room. One highlight from the night was Amanda's dad serenading her mom with the help of the 10-piece band. It was fun to catch up with her whole family and meet her new husband Charles. We're so happy we could attend.

On the ride home Saturday we...
stopped to see our friends Eddie and Michelle, their kids, and house (Harriet and Evy having a snack),

stopped for yarn at the Knitty Gritty Shop,

and ran around a pumpkin patch. Driving further down rural Hwy 33 we noticed a sign for Ethanol Days, a one day open house that included family fun and plant tours at an ethanol plant. We skipped it and regretted that decision a ways down the road, but just couldn't bring ourselves to turnaround and backtrack when we had over four more hours of driving ahead of us. After that Harriet actually slept in the car for a few hours before we stopped in Hudson for some pizza and the required New Glarus beer run. We had a fun trip!
