Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!!!

Many of you may not know that Grandma and Grandpa Waldack had their first date in Lake Geneva, so  they are the ones that really got it all started with an attraction to this lovely area. Here is a photo of that infamous day! My mom may know the date this photo was actually taken. Mike and Cheryl also had their honeymoon in the Lake Geneva area, and so is Jeff and I! We just love this place and fell in love here!

Trike Rides to LaCrosse, WI

Jeff and I took many trike rides to LaCrosse, WI and especially loved to visit Aunt Lorie, Uncle Eddie, the Kaeppelers and Grandma. We had the most scenic rides along the Mississippi River between Prairie du Chien and LaCrosse with the bluffs along one side and the river along the other. If you ever have a chance to drive or ride along the scenic “Great River Road”, it is definitely worth it!

The Ring

Jeff and I chose a blue diamond for my engagement ring because as he said, “It is unique just like you are!” It also goes along with the whole theme of wedding being on the water. Isn’t it lovely!!!
