Fall Vacation Day 1
Hard to believe that two weeks ago I was on vacation with the Hubby. Not so hard to believe how fast that week flew by. No more vacation plans on the horizon; I need to change that quickly!
This year we only traveled for a few days and bummed around the Southeast part of the state, between Milwaukee and Madison. There really is so much to see and do there and I must admit that we missed a huge part of it.
One place that I have wanted to visit is the Mitchell Park Domes. It has been over forty years since either I or the Hubby have been there. (Does that mean we are old?)
There was a school field trip in the Desert Dome. They were on a scavenger hunt and running all over looking for things like frogs, and snakes, and boots.
The Tropical Dome was closed, so that was rather disappointing.
I’ve also always wanted to visit the Pabst Mansion. It is horrible that so many beautiful homes like this have met the wrecking ball. In fact, this house was slanted for demolition and had been saved within days of meeting its end. It is sad enough that it is surrounded by modern buildings instead of its contemporaries, other stunning old mansion of a gone-by era.
