Mini Vacation Continued...

After our fun days in Madison, the 3 adults and 4 kids piled into our van and headed about an hour and a half further north.  Her husband Josh was going to take and early day from work and meet us up at the cabin.  If you are at all familiar with Wisconsin we were about 30 minutes past the Dells.

Short Story:
My husband has never been pulled over for speeding and he likes to gloat.  One our way up to the cabin Troy got pulled over by one of those cool under cover cop cars.  The cop came to the passengers side of the car and just stated matter of fact like that he was deputy and was on the traffic control task force.  He stated "sir you were speeding, can I see you license and insurance please.  Your from Illinois, I will issue a situation and try to help you out."  He then walked away.  He was not rude at all just very factual.  When he came back he brought his speed gun and showed Troy what he clocked him at in a 55.  Then he told us the ticket based on speed should have been $295 but he issued Troy a missing seat belt ticket and that is only $10 with no points against his record and if we wanted to dispute it we could.  I was so happy I almost hugged the guy.  He then proceeded to find out or weekend destination and explain how the area in which we were headed was pretty cool.  This was the strangest encounter I have ever had with a cop(not that there is a lot) and I was very happy for the end result.

On with our awesome weekend unclouded by the recent ticket cost.  We got to a cabin and don't think Cabin think gorgeous house on the lake.  I would live there.  We had a great week relaxing, catching up, playing, and swimming. Enjoy the pictures below!
