Camping in Northern WI

We decided to go camping 4 1/2 hours north of here in Northern Highland- American Legions State Forest. It was nice to actually get a little bit out of the big city and actually find some forest. We went on a short hike and stopped at a small lake. We saw a deer drinking on the other side which made us feel like we finally found some nature...but still the campground were still filled up and there were many small towns all around. We did not take many pictures and all of the ones we did take were of Elizabeth. She was much better looking than us without showering in the extreme humidity. Elizabeth got to eat her first few bites of rice cereal.

Elizabeth is watching us prepare the cereal and is very interested

Elizabeth got frustrated trying to eat and needed some comforting.

She slept through the night. She didn't care that mommy forgot the air mattresses.

We spent some time on the beach of a small lake with white sand and clear water.

Newest toy

This post is dedicated to Hunter Hamm who inspired Elizabeth's parents to get her the rain forest jumperoo which is king of all jumping toys. We bought the only one I found on craig's list and drove 20 minutes south of even my work to get it. Elizabeth is still learning how to jump and we have a package of toilet paper underneath her feet so that she can touch the floor. There is lots of room to grow.

tomatoes canning

I am proud of myself because for the first time I canned tomatoes. I also did a batch of cooked jam while I had the canner from my friend. I had about twenty pounds of tomatoes and they wouldn't all fit in the hot water bath pot.

lots of black berries

The black berries in our back yard are growing wild. I told my parents they are as tall as the house but that was a couple weeks ago. Now they are going to go over the top and down the other side if I don't trim them sometime soon
