So what is there to do in Kenosha anyway? Well, there are tons of things to do in Kenosha! Other than visiting the Kenosha Public Museum, there’s a Civil War Museum, and a Dinosaur Museum. There is the beach! You can build sand castles on the shores of Lake Michigan. There are lots of cute little diners and ice cream shops. There’s a train that takes you around the town. There’s an awesome cemetery and some great parks. Visiting Kenosha is going to be so awesome…. in the summer. Don’t get me wrong. I still had a fabulous trip, but that was mostly because of hanging out with my family. I kept thinking how nice it would be to visit when everything is green and sunny. But we made the most of it. We took a tour of the Jelly Belly Warehouse.
And no trip to Wisconsin would be complete without some cheese. We got ours at the Mars Cheese Castle.
We got to sample all kinds of fancy cheeses. There was the 3-year-old cheddar, the 7-year-old cheddar, and the 9-year-old cheddar that was so sharp, I almost couldn’t swallow it. There was a fruit cheese and one with tomato and basil. Mmm… delicious.
One afternoon, we picked up some Popeye’s! I was so thrilled to eat my favorite chicken po’boy and fries. We don’t have that kind of yumminess in Utah (at least, not unless you’re at the air force base).
We did brave the windy cold one afternoon in an attempt to locate Amanda’s Christmas wreath that got caught up by the wind. Luckily, we found it camouflaged in the neighbor’s flowerbeds. Penny Lane showed me their new little cottage.
Meanwhile, Amanda fed the birds nesting in the pile of branches from the tree that fell down after the tornado back in June.
Even when it’s too cold to play outside, we did the next best thing. We played in the sunroom.
Although, it was still a little chilly in there.
It’s the perfect place to watch the sunset.
