We started with a stop in Hayward, WI. We have stopped at Coops pizza for lunch all 4 years that I have gone. Jimmy's family started that tradition, this year was his 14th trip! They have a great lunch buffet. All you can eat soup, salad, pizza and garlic bread.
I love to walk through all the little shops even though most of the stuff is too expensive for my tastes (and budget.) One of these days I will bite the bullet and get some Hayward garb! This stop wouldn't be complete without a stop at the bakery and candy shop.
We went swimming after dinner. Parker LOVES the water and started to get very brave around the pool this time!
Here is a video of him jumping off the side. (Please excuse the poor quality, it's a waterproof camera and does not do great in low lighting.)
That was the last thing we did before heading back to the hotel to take a well deserved nap!
I found a great little cafe/coffee shop that was near our hotel. Tap Roots was a true hometown joint. The man working was so helpful and kind. If you are ever is Ashland, WI I highly recommend stopping there!
They had a great soup and sandwich menu. Perfect for a chilly fall night. I had a turkey panini on fresh cranberry wild rice bread. Jimmy had a reuben and we shared a delicious cup of white chicken chili.
We headed home Saturday morning and were able to relax for the rest of the weekend. Another trip for the memory books!
