Not just repurposing, but BEING repurposed......" if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come." ~~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

MI to MN -- Day 1

Yeah, I know, I know. There's not much more painful than viewing someone else's vacation pictures. So I must be a bit of a masochist, because here I go ......


We got a bit of a late start Tuesday morning, but by mid-afternoon had crossed into Wisconsin and decided it was time for a break when we spotted this super touristy, super "cheesy" destination.

How could we resist!

The only thing "Mars" about it was this sign on the side of the building. ??????????

But we did notice a few "castlely" things.

They made cheese right there at the store!

They had a lot of interesting customers!

And of course silly, tacky merchandise!

But there was nothing silly or tacky about their bakery. YUMMM!

You didn't think we'd pass this up, did you?

Back on the road again. OR WERE WE ? .......... Well after some parking lot time, some road service time, some getting lost looking for Wal-Mart time, and finally some Wal-Mart Auto Service time, we were back on the road again -- sporting a brand spanking new battery.

By nighttime, we were tired and hungry and decided to stop at this fun place near the Wisconsin Dells. Hey, any place that gives away such cool hats has GOT to be fun!

I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were into repurposing. Yee Haw!

They were REALLY into repurposing! Fortunately for us they were also into good food. It really hit the spot!

Okay the picture's bad. But by time we left, it was getting late and I was kind of out of it. Thank goodness Becky saved the day and finished up the remaining 3 hour drive. We arrived at our hotel in Burnsville around 1:00 in the morning. We slept good!
