St. Germain, Wisconsin :: Day 1
We are still talking about what a great time we had on vacation last week. This is the 4th family vacation up north. It's been five years since the last time we went up north (our RV adventure took place instead three years ago), and I'm so happy our schedules allowed it. The first day was spent dropping off dogs, driving, and meeting up with the family at our awesome rental house on Big St. Germain Lake. The house was perfect. It was a bit smaller than others we've stayed in for our group of 10, but we made it work -- plus, it was gorgeous, had great swimming right off the pier and came with two kayaks and a fishing boat, which we used a ton. That night, we kicked off vacation by going out for a fish fry at Black Bear Lodge. Needless to say, we were all excited to be there.
