Grandson JP kickin’ it in Chicago!
So I just had to post a couple of photos from my Daughter’s Birthday get together yesterday evening. Lover of animals as we all are in this family, they have cats right now – no dogs.
SO a new kitty has joined their household – Raviti. He is such a little guy and eats his food slowly. So cute….
But – because he eats slowly THIS GUY….(see photo below)
…named Sprocket, who was also at one time that small, has to be held at bay while little Raviti finishes eating. Who looks happier, Sprocket or my Daughter?
Rain! Liquid Sunshine doesn’t stop life on the banks of the river. As Mandy and I look out the windows of the camper we can see the sky is darkening and it has begun to rain.
Not raining hard enough yet to keep the residents of this RV Park inside.
And as Mandy’s bathroom is outside…no doubt we will be out in it at some point as the forecast is calling for rain all day.
Hey, it’s only water.
Hope your Thursday is Terrific!
Since we are on the banks of the Mississippi River for the next few months I thought it might be a little interesting to track day to day in photos. I am not sure I will be doing it everyday because, to be honest, it looks the same A LOT! So we will see how it goes I guess.
Lots of wildlife – Geese, Ducks, Turtles and Fish jumping. Birds galore as well. The other day I saw a Bald Eagle diving over the cove by the river (which we are parked on) to catch his breakfast. Took him 3 tries but he finally landed a pretty big one.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
During the week of July 4th we also went to Fairlawn Mansion.
Fairlawn Mansion – Victorian House Museum
906 East 2nd Street, Superior, WI
Built as the family home for lumber and mining baron, Martin Pattison, his wife Grace and their six children, Fairlawn was completed in 1891 at the cost of $150,000; an equivalent of well over $3 million today. The mansion stands as an enduring testament to Pattison’s success and standing in the community. Later turned into a home for children from 1920 to 1962.
It was really a very nice tour, lots of good information and a lot to see. About an hour tour, then you can do the grounds if you like. Again – mostly photos follow, not much chat.
This is oldest daughter- she looks pretty good in that room.
A few photos from the music room.
Love the ceiling.
This is a chair that was embroidered by the lady of the house. She embroidered each chair herself, so each chair around the dining table is just a little different.
Grandson, Oldest Daughter and Son-in-Law…what are they looking at??
TA-DA…beautiful painted ceilings.
Some gorgeous stained glass windows in this house.
A nice tour. I recommend stopping at the Fairlawn Mansion if you are in Superior, Wisconsin at some point.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
