School House Lake
For many years our family went to Hayward Wisconsin for a week or two in the summer.
It was a small resort on little lake with skinny perch.
The perch were cleaned in a tiny fish shack at the lakeside.
We swam in the pool all day every day.
We hunted chipmunks.
We went to the dive in theater and stalked the bear at the dump.
That was my favorite.
This particular back road was roller coaster like. Up and down, Up and down.
Our dad would race up the hill and after he roared over the top he would put the car in neutral...and coast down. But it had to be fast enough to get up the top of the next hill. How exciting!!!
I can still see those hills.
I can still feel the thrill.
Our mom had the twins when she was 32.
(Her later in life babies...ha)
Just think....I have a child who is near that age!!!
She was so young.
Young and loving her babies.
Did you vacation with your families?
Did you travel around the United States?
Go to the same place?
My kids got a mixed bag. We mostly visited family around the states...along with summertime visits to Minocqua.
I wonder what my children remember.
