Baby’s 1st Vacation

Baby’s 1st Vacation

We had the chance for a mini getaway Father’s Day weekrnd. It was our first family vacation with Jillian! It was absolutly amazing! She was perfect!

We started our day by stopping at the New Glarus brewery. Great beer selection not sold where I live in Illinois! Great scenery with a roof top tasting bar.



Our destination was the Cave of the Mounds but decided to stop at the House on the Rock on the way there. So glad we did! We only went on 1 of the 3 tours but are already planning a trip back! It was amazing! The first thing we walked into was the most awesome carousel filled with vintage rides! The lights and music filled the room and was jaw dropping.



The next room was the music room! This enormous room was wall to wall in instruments! Organs, drums, pianos!! There’s so much to say about this house but really is a must see! I highly reccomend it!

Then we went to the Cave of the Mounds. By this time, Jillian was a bit tired and cranky. 🙂 The cold, dark cave scared her and she cried the first 15 minutes, then slept in my arms the rest of the time! I bought some amazing new minerals and crystals at the shop! The variety of specimens was a sute to see in itself.



We ended our day at the Grumpy Troll Brewery in Mt.Horeb- the Norwegian troll town! Grabbed dinner to eat back at the hotel. The day was just perfect!
