Enjoying Summer in Wisconsin

It's been a while since I posted, so here's what's been happening with us in our neck of the woods. Literally, we are camped in the woods in north central Wisconsin where there are lots of trees and lakes.

We really haven't been doing too much, just enjoying the weather. Yuma has consistently had temperatures over 110 degrees, so we are happy to be here. We've had some rain and humidity, but also many beautiful days. Most of the time, we don't even have to run the AC.

Today I celebrate my 63rd birthday. No real plans. Kevin will be grilling us a nice steak dinner, and we will play bocce ball this evening. A nice relaxing day!

We are enjoying our new Grand Design Reflection fifth wheel. So far, we are quite happy with it. There are a few minor things we will have taken care of under warranty when we get back to Yuma; but overall, it's a great unit. On one of the nice sunny days, I took this photo of clouds reflected in the back windows of our Reflection. Artsy, don't you think :)

In July we spent a weekend at our son Eric's house. We met his girlfriend Erin and her son Tyler for the first time. We had a great time, and are so happy Eric has this great lady in his life. We also visited with my mom at her home. Here are some pictures we took in my mom's backyard.

Eric, Erin and Tyler came to the campground a week later, and we had another fun weekend together. This coming weekend we are going back to Eric's for another visit. It's great being able to spend time with family.

Due to Covid, we haven't been doing much. We did enjoy a round of golf last week. These cranes were enjoying the day at the course as well.

We play bocce ball here at the campground with a group of friends on Monday evenings. On Tuesday evenings, Kevin plays cards with a small group of guys. They play a game called Sheepshead, which I believe is pretty much only played in Wisconsin. There are five guys here that play. On Thursday evenings we play pegs and jokers with a few couples. So, plenty to keep us entertained. I've also been working on a north woods themed bedspread quilt for the bed in our new fifth wheel. We take a walk most every morning, and do plenty of reading. Love our Kindles and free ebooks from the library.

So, as you can see; we are enjoying the summer here. Not really much to blog about, though. Just a relaxing, quiet place to hang out during this trying time in our country and the world. Sure hope next summer will be more normal.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. Sounds like a lovely summer. Looks like your family may be growing more :-) We're trying to figure how to play golf in the insane heat of south Texas.

  2. I love reading these! Great to hear about your wild adventures!

  3. Sounds like you're making the best of the summer in all the craziness. Glad to hear the Reflection is serving you well.

  4. It sounds like you are having the perfect summer for 2020. Nestled away in a campground with small groups of friends and spending time with family, both old and new! By the way, you are much older than me because my birthday is not for another week LOL


We'd love to hear from you!
