Family Trip to LaCrosse/ Sparta!

I plan to do a post of some of the things we did this summer, but decided to give this trip it's own post!  We had a lot of fun!  We went over Father's Day/ Jacki's birthday weekend.  We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights.

We went swimming in the hotel pools.
 Rode about 8 miles on the Sparta trail.

 Which included old, abandoned railroad tunnels.  The longest one we went through was 3/4 of a mile long!  It was pitch black inside and you couldn't even see the light at the end of the tunnel and had to use flashlights.  During half the year, there are bats inside, but luckily not while we were there, lol!
 Finally at the end!
 Venily was a rock star and rode almost the whole time by herself on 2 wheels!  We decided that she needs a bigger bike though.  She rode a 12" and we checked the height/bike chart and she should be riding an 18", lol!
The western part of Wisconsin is so pretty!
More tunnels!

Woodchip fight in the rain!

Lots of "Touristy" stuff!

 How do you fit 8 people in a 2 bedroom hotel?  LOL!
 Father's Day!  The Dads were riding the Human Powered Trails

Lookout Point
 More Swimming

 We did some state park- hopping on the drive there and the drive back!
 Temple of Guadalupe
 More State Parks!
 Ready to go canoeing!

 Was obsessed with "People Berries" the whole time.  (aka blackberries- berries that people can eat!)
