Wisconsin Weekend :: Day 3
We woke up on our last day at the Seth Peterson Cottage on C's 10th birthday. We had opened some of the presents at home, but saved some for his birthday morning. After some chocolate chip pancakes, it was time to move on -- and meet our friends for our annual camping trip. Before we even got there, we had heard word that one of the families had the stomach flu. And Brian was still not feeling great and was on the brink of booking a hotel room for himself. But he made it, and one by one the remaining three families showed up. First were the Elsmo's. Once they set up their site, we went to the lake and rented a paddle boat while waiting for the others. After a little while, the rest arrived -- all with supplies to make C's birthday a memorable one. Streamers, bubble gum balls, silly string, glow stick and crystals that made the fire glow different colors. It was awesome. I think it's safe to say, I think C had a great day.
