A Day on the Lake Minocqua Chain

Yesterday marked the first day that I went out on the Minocqua chain of lakes...we went out with our old neighbor friend and his kids and had a blast!

There were several stops here and there so the kids could jump off the boat and swim.

We packed our lunch so we had a picnic on the boat and enjoyed some snacks.

The girls got to sit on the back of the boat when we just tooled around in the no wake zones.

It was such a beautiful and PERFECT day!  Not too hot and not too cool...just right.

We stopped out at the Otter Slide, which is where you can park your boats and get out and swim and explore.  The girls got out and climbed up one side of the hill...

and then ran/slid down the other side and jumped back into the water.

We stopped out at Lakeside Grill and the kids got some kiddie cocktails and got to sit in the oversized chairs.

Then we finished our day up by going out to see Beer Can Island...another local hot spot.

Once home, I took the girls out to eat for some Chinese food (their choice) and then we made a stop for some Chocolate Shoppe ice cream before coming home for a sleepover.  Moving the mattresses off of Zoey's bunk beds and putting them together on the floor and bringing in our small t.v. so they could watch a special fairy movie made the day complete.

We had so much fun today and are exhausted!  A little bit sunburned but a lot a bit happy.
