Walkin’ in Wausau – Rib Mountain State Park

My title is a bit misleading. This post is not really about Rib Mountain State Park, but the walking path that runs parallel with Park Road (that leads into the State Park), I believe it might be called, The Bone & Joint Trail — or maybe part just part of it is (??). 🤷‍♀️ I … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – Bluegill Bay Park

I hesitated sharing this park. It’s one of those places hidden in plain sight (ok, I kept forgetting about it) and after you have ‘discovered’ it for yourself, you want to keep it for yourself.

Walkin’ in Wausau – Cedar Creek Trail

I “discovered” this trail (and next week’s post) through a friend’s invite to participate in an MS walk.

After the MS walk, … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – Doepke Park

Next up on our park tour is Doepke Recreation Area. This is “our” place. It’s usually our first choice, we do quick outings or spend as much time here as possible, we stop here after running errands, we’ve practiced riding without training wheels here, we’ve tested out our snowshoes here, etc.    This park has it … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – Oak Island Park

This is my first post in a series I’m calling Walkin’ in Wausau.

DIY Kid Room Makeover – 2 years later

Thanks to facebook and Google Photos Assistant, I was reminded what I was up to two years ago. Which also reminded me I intended to write a post about how I painted the room, but never got around to it (Update: I got around to it! Read about it here). If you do not know … continue reading…

DIY Kid Room Makeover

This post is written two years after the fact, so I may omit a few details/steps here. With the arrival of our fourth child, we thought it would be a great bonding experience to put a big kid with a little kid. We also wanted them to have a space that felt like their own room on … continue reading…
