Trip to Wisconsin

Ahhh. It is so nice to travel again!
We spent a weekend in Wisconsin with the following Monday off of work so we could roam around and chill together. Haven’t decided yet where Monday will take us. It has been far too long since my husband and I have done a little mini-road trip, and with the last couple months being ridiculously stressful, we planned to just run off and go play for a while. Boy was this fun! To share a few highlights:

The National Mustard Museum

It used to be the Mt. Horeb Mustard Museum, but they have since relocated and expanded their name. We’ve been there several times now.

Getting cheese curds!
It’s this little Wisconsin tradition of ours- we always get a bag to munch in the car.

I’m sorry to say that there were a couple animals we missed- a giant frog shaped shed (he was fabulous) and an airplane. And I think there was a bunny in there somewhere, we just couldn’t stop for all of them. The important ones on this trip were the elephant and the giraffe from Delevan. There’s a report that there’s a bronze giraffe on a sidewalk in Baraboo, and we drove around for a while looking for him, but alas. If he’s there, he’s under a pile of snow.

Jogging Briskly Through the Dairy Shrine

We got there literally 4 minutes before they closed. Didn’t get many pictures, but this cow was pretty good. Next time we’re in the area, we’re going to set aside some time for this, because it’s a cool place.

Disappointment of the trip:
The Forevertron wasn’t open. Darn it, darn it, darn it. I really need to get some new pictures. We took a bunch when we were there, but I can’t find them anywhere. I fear they are lost.

    Envy, envy! I would love to go on a road trip. It’s been toooo long! I have never traveled in Wis. so that might be a good one some day. I think I would like that mustard museum. the bespectacled pachederm and landscape cow are pretty cool but how is Wis. for zebranalia?

  2. Wow. I managed to escape, until that painted cow photo, that while Wisconsin may be the land of cheese it is also the land of COWS. Blech. There is nothing better than cheese and nothing worse than the scent of lactating cows. Way to ruin a good thing, Wisconsin! The intelligent elephant almost makes up for it.

  3. …What’s with the giraffe?

      Um… it’s a cement giraffe. Well, okay, the town of Delevan had a circus there a while back and they put up the giraffe and another statue nearby because of that, but we just because, of course, it’s a giraffe. (Isn’t that elephant the best?)
