Things are finally thawing here and the snow is actually gone! My children were on spring break last week, and after a brutal winter with too many days spent hiding from the weather, we took advantage of the improving conditions to get out and do a few things. My son wanted to do a college visit at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, so off we went.
What a gorgeous campus! Madison is on an isthmus between Lakes Mendota and Monona. The Memorial Student Union sits right on the shores of Lake Mendota.
Madison is also the capital of Wisconsin, and the state capitol building is within walking distance of campus.
After a day in Madison, we headed to Milwaukee, which we'd never visited before. We found the Bronze Fonz!
I hope to be back on the blog soon with some finished stitched pieces to show, as soon as I can get some good photographs of them.
