Cool Things in Milwaukee

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On our way to Milwaukee we tried to get into a couple state and county parks, but because it was the weekend there were no spots available. So luckily there was a Cabela’s close by.  We spent the night there and headed to the Harley-Davidson Museum first thing in the morning.  We were able to park in one of the museum parking lots.  The museum had just opened so it wasn’t too busy.  Marcus and Caroline completed an activity book for shortsters.  Marcus especially had lots of questions for his dad about how motors work.  Marc was very patient and explained all the technical stuff to him and Caroline.  They learned about how the motors function and sound differently and how they have changed over time.  In the engine room there were lots of cool hands on displays to show the interior workings.  We looked at how the motorcycle industry has changed over the years and all the ways they have been used in our society.  Marcus and Caroline each picked out their favorite tank from the tank wall.  There was a kids area where they could dress up, play motorcycle games and read motorcycle kids books.  Then we moved on to play an Evil Kenevil video game and design our own motorcycles.  The last stop was sitting on the motorcycles.  That may have been there favorite part.

Then we headed to Kopp’s for a burger and some custard.  Shannon had told us it was good, but the custard was amazing!!  The burgers were huge and yummy too.  Then we headed to Sprecher’s Brewing Company.  There was a wait to go on a tour so we bought beer and pop to taste at our next stop.  Marcus and Caroline’s favorite was the grape soda and Marc and I each found a new beer we really liked.  Then it was time to hit the road.  On to Michigan!!

    My home town is COLON MI. it is between Sturgis and Coldwater. It’s claim to fame is that it is the MAGIC CAPITAL of the world. Many famous magicians are buried there (Blackstone Sr. And Harry Jr) among them. And my dad Monk Watson. The magic factory makes tricks for magicians all over the world. It is a very small town in the middle of Amish country and lakes. Of course if you go thru BIGBLUE town of Ann Arbor. Give a wave for me. That is where Dick and I met our Soph year and grad together Class of 51👍 GO BLUE!! Mi is a beautiful state. Quiz. What state has the most lighthouses?? It is MI. Because of the Great Lakes. Enjoy!
