One thing beautiful about our vacation was revisiting The Land of Evermore in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
My family went there many years ago. Michael had never been there (and he and Million had such a blast...seriously, if you've got a boyish boy and are near the Dells, take him there! It's free!) I also had a great time, being visually inspired. For a mom who doesn't get out much, it was an invigorating and refreshing jaunt---even if it was raining half the time we were wandering through the place.
