Recap: Fourth of July Weekend


The Fourth of July -- besides being a wonderful holiday where we celebrate America's Independence, it's the perfect mid-summer break to enjoy with family & friends.  For most, it means no schedules to adhere to, no work to attend, & the perfect excuse to eat & drink until your heart is content.

Our Fourth of July weekend was exactly that.

Thursday we went "up north" as we say, to Crivitz area, & enjoyed a couple lazy days with Zac's family at their cabin.  This meant big, homemade breakfasts (think: blueberry pancakes! french toast! bacon! sausage!) & suppers (think: side pork! beef roast! brats! porketta roast!), trips to the lake nearby to float & fish, volleyball games, & campfires.

*I apologize in advance for the quality of the below photos; they were all taken with my cell phone.



Friday mid-morning, we hiked Thunder Mountain for the first time...  my husband had the idea & we had no idea what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised.  There are grass cut trails & it's a really easy hike through the fields & forest that offers beautiful views.


*shout-out to TrueNorthCollection -- their handbands are amazing!
It would be a great place to picnic as well -- there are 3 look out points with scenic views & picnic tables to enjoy a packed lunch (watch out for ticks though)!


Saturday we came back home & attended a "tiki hut" party by Zac's Aunt & Uncle.  Their property is basically like a resort.  They have a big, beautiful home on a hill & down below they built a tiki hut that sits at the foot of their sand volleyball court, which hugs their pond.   Basically, why would you ever leave?  We lounged pond-side & ate Belgian Trippe until our bellies were content, and then headed to Green Bay to watch the downtown fireworks.



Sunday was a lazy day -- we slept in, went to breakfast, did some housework, then kayaked the afternoon away at Krohns Lake & even caught a few fish!




It was lovely weekend indeed, and now we're back to reality.
Friday... where are you??!
