Time Out

Ah, our quiet respite from the hussle and bussle of everyday life was refreshing. Although not truly "primitive" by purists standards, the time away from electronics and cell phones to camp with fire and tents was a welcome invitation to slow down and discover that conversations can still occur without the aide of technology, and the world is indeed a beautiful place. Our first night was a lovely bed and breakfast where we had our own cabin and woke to a lovely foggy morning in the mountains on a busy dairy farm.

Next we went 26 miles on the Elroy-Sparta Bike trail with the kids.

We followed this with a 12-mile canoe ride down the Kickapoo River the following day.

And managed to stop and enjoy the small things along the way.
