I want to go to there. Beaver Dam. Blue Barn.

Culvers is thanking farmers.

The ad features a big BLUE barn.  I said to Patrick, "I want to go see it!"
He said, "It's fake."

(He is cynical like that.)

I looked it up on Google.
(Cause I'm like that.)



This is in Beaver Dam Wisconsin.
I hear you can see it from 151.

Can you say....field trip!!!


Encourage one another and thank-you farmers.
Donna

  1. I've been sad ever since they took down the smiley barn in Delafield so this made me happy when I saw it on the news. :) Yay farmers!

  3. I miss the Midwest!!! At certain times of year, I get a real pull to head home to Illinois and Indiana. From about right now until Thanksgiving, it's the strongest. What beautiful places and beautiful people.

      You can take the girl out of the Midwest, but you can't take the Midwest out of the girl!

    What a beautiful shade of blue. I so hope you take a field trip and report back to us.

    BTW, whenever I am home in Illinois for a visit, I go to the Culvers in our little town. YUM. I could go for a butter burger RIGHT NOW!

  7. I'd want to see that, too. Such a fun color for a barn. Makes red seem so boring!

    I love the blue barn against the pretty green grass. Can you imagine what it'll look like against the white snow?

    We are Culver's fans around here, too. Better butter burger. : )

    The farm that my husband and I live on has been in my family for around 85 years. Sophia is the fifth generation to live in our house. They've raised chickens, work horses, hogs, sheep and black Angus cattle over the years. Grandpa and my dad sold off the last of our cows in 2007. We still continue to raise row crop (corn, soybeans and occasionally wheat). Just this year my husband and I started raising chickens. So, this fall we'll have 16 egg-layers. They have been a lot of fun....so far. Ha!

    We just got home yesterday from Wisconsin , ate at Culvers and had my first butter burger! Yum! Your state is so beautiful ! Everyone takes such pride in their homes and farms.
    We were so tempted to call you and come meet you. I've followed your blog for a long time, Katie was just a little one, and now has grown into such a young lady !
    We drove through Beaver Dam and bought some cheese to bring home to Kansas . Go on a field trip and see the blue barn such fun!

  11. What a great color blue! Love it.

    I wonder if there is some sort of cosmic ordering system where marriages have a cynical spouse and an "I believe and I will google it to prove it" spouse in each marriage (-: Guess which one I am?

    Happy Tuesday all,
    Di

    2. I am, sad to say, a cynic about people. But dreaming about plans? I am the happy googler and my hubby is a cynic. I am working on being less cynical about people. I do not like that quality in myself...at all!

    3. My hubby is the cynic, I'm the happy googler.

      I'm very thankful for google -- if only to prove I'm right some of the time :-)

    Beautiful blue barn.....with such a beautiful message! As much as I love the city, it's gorgeous skyline and all it has to offer, I find myself drawn to the open fields of the country, too. Look forward to seeing your pretty pictures of this barn once you get your googling-self over there! :)
