A Great Weekend In Northern Wisconsin

in Snowmobiling, Wheeler Lake

We were finally able to get all parties together for a weekend of snowmobiling and ice skating on Wheeler Lake in northern Oconto county. You see, we had planned for a nice long weekend over the New Years holiday with a brother and sister in-law on my wifes side but, it was warm and rained that weekend, bummer.  Finally toward the end of January the kids had Friday off of school so we packed everything in the truck and made our way north after school on Thursday.

We made a nice ice rink for the kids to skate on and they had a blast.  My brother in-law rented a snowmobile from the good folks over at Waubee Lodge which is just down the road a few miles from our cottage. (Snowmobile rentals aren’t cheap anywhere but the machines at Waubee Lodge are nearly brand new and in fantastic condition so we had no complaints.) It was our kids first time on snowmobiles and thankfully while we were there we had about 5 inches of new snow so the trail conditions were very good. All of the children really enjoyed riding on the lake and trails so we are off to a good start on snowmobiling.

Friday night we went to Waubee Lodge for dinner which is our habit on at least one night when we are at the cottage. My sweetheart really likes a good perch plate and I enjoy the prime rib.  We have yet to be disappointed with our food at Waubee Lodge.

Enjoy our pictures from the weekend!
