Laura Ingalls Wilder Day – Field Trip

Sunday we decided to take my daughter to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Day. She has been wanting to go since we started learning about Laura Ingalls Wilder earlier this year. Laura Ingalls Wilder days was held at Heritage Hill Historical Center in Green Bay. The hype of this was the fact that the actors were there from the show Little House on the Prairie. I must say that I was really disappointed because one we really didn’t see the actors and two I wasn’t going to spend money just to get an autograph. The second reason was I expected it to be more. Really it was just like any other day at Heritage Hill. I thought there would be tents and a lot more hands on activities but there wasn’t. I don’t think we will go again next year. My daughter had fun so that is what matters.

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West – Field Trip

Saturday was a beautiful afternoon so we headed down to Manitowac, to the Pine Crest Historical Society to see Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. If you are in Wisconsin and you have never been to PineCrest Historical Society, I highly recommend making a visit. This was our second time there and the atmosphere in this place is by far the best I have ever come across in Historical Societies. People really get into their roles. They take the time to explain the history and are vary knowledgeable. At the end I will share something that really actually touched me about this place and the people. We are definitely going to get a family membership as there are so many hands on activities and things that they plan through out the year. Unfortunately I wanted to go to the family night pioneer session this week but it is suppose to rain/storm. Boo!!

Weekly Wild Life Sanctuary Visit- Still Nesting

This week we went to the Wild Life Sanctuary again to see what stage the geese where in with there nesting. On the way there we read a book about birds, eggs, and nests. It was actually very interesting to hear the kids read about the different birds. We have robins here and I had no idea they liked berries such as raspberries and cherries. As we walked we looked for nests and the birds we read about. We did see a lot of robins.

 

WildLife Sanctuary – It’s Nesting Time

I love taking the kids to the Wild Life Sanctuary. It doesn’t matter what time of the year you go. You really never have the same experience as something new always pops up, or something magical happens with the animals. It’s spring here right now so it’s mating season for a lot of the animals. It was not a cold day, but not a warm day either. It was gloomy with no sunshine but it was great to get out and take that walk.

Viewing Waterfalls on a Beautiful Fall Day!!

Historical Marker

If your not from Wisconsin you wouldn’t know that Marinette County holds the keys to the most waterfalls in the state. Yesterday we took the kids to the north woods and visited three of them. One of them we didn’t have to really hike to. The others you had to hike the trails. They are beautiful and breath taking. Many people had the idea to stop and see the different falls. The colors are starting to turn but they are not quite at the peak yet. If you go to US Highway 2 in Michigan and go north they are peaking up there. The county parks there do charge a $3.00 fee, however that tag is good for all county parks that day.
