Wisconsin, 2013

So I took a day to visit my good friends in Wisconsin.  One of my first publications is with Alexey and we keep reasonably close contact for the last 10+ years.  He just doesn’t seem to change and neither does his wife; their daughter, however, is no longer 12… she’s 21.  WOW!  That was a shocker, sitting next to her in a restaurant with her ordering wine.  I remember her a tiny little thing… she’s a woman now…  Well, thoughts about growing up aside, this was a great time!  Sorry I took so long to process the photos (there were just so many).

I messed up the video a bit trying to run “stabilizer” on it and not checking the final effect.  It was late at night so I just left the machine processing overnight and went to sleep.  I’ll fix it, but for now here’s the awesome tubing/swimming/etc video:

Love the fire pit.

Somehow the hammock just fits right in, doesn’t it?

This is what living in Wisconsin is all about — nature!

Getting ready for the boat ride.  Most of us don’t know what’s in store, expecting “tubing” to be a thing for kids.

Landscapes are amazing here.
