Aug. 6: Happy birthday, Phil and Happy 44th Anniversary for both of us.

Trip no. 2 was a short one.  We took Corrina, (our daughter and her husband and kids), Tait, Teagan and Cooper to Madison, WI for wine tasting at Barrique's near the square in Madison, WI.  Corrina, Tait and kids who live in the Seattle area were visiting us 8-1 to 8-10.  Ted, our son who lives in Spokane attended his yearly biology Symposium in Milwaukee so he was also spending some time with us.

At a rest stop 2 ladies came up to us.  They were excited to see other Roadtrek owners.  They were on their way from New York to MN.  It was the first time either of us had talked to Roadtrek owners on the road.   Fun to share our excitement for our vehicles.

At Barrique's it was like a family reunion.  Phil's two sisters and husbands:  Gigi & Bruce and Kerry & Rick also were there.  Randi, our niece, is a manager at Barrique's.  Ted, our son, also met us there.  After our wine tasting everyone but Ted went to Randi and Paul's to stay overnight.  We didn't get up early enough to make it to the Farmer's Market on the Square in Madison.  But lots of family visiting again.  Ellie visited her sister, Claudia, on the way home.   

The State Capitol of WI is so impressive.   We walked around the Capitol.  We lived in Madison 38 years ago.  It was neat to visit once again.  

Lunch at Culver's.  We all love their "Flavor of the Day."  Home about 3 pm.  

We used the RV to take our grandson, Jason, home.  He came over to spend time with his cousins.  Then we were all going to Gene and Yvonne's for dinner.  We had to use the RV because we needed to have seat buckles for 7 of us.
