We are home from our week of vacation in Pepin,WI! I am going to share the week in a few segments over the next couple of days so that I don't have a super long post.

We stayed in a great location called Mariport right outside of Pepin, WI. Pepin is where Laura Ingalls Wilder was born and there are references all over town referring to her. Jeremy and I drove to the actual site where she was born which is a couple of miles out of town. The site is right off the road and there is a cabin there. The cabin isn't the actual cabin where she was born, but I guess it is a good representation. (???) I think Little House in the Big Woods took place in Pepin. If I'm wrong, somebody please correct me. As we were driving up to the site I can see how a little girl would think that the woods were big! There were many, many trees. (This photos was taken from my phone)

As a little girl I read all of the Little House books and I also watched all of the tv shows. I still love all of the stories. I want to go to the Guthrie to see the musical which I is guess is really good. Melissa Gilbert is playing ma.

The accommodations at Mariport were beautiful! I will end this post with a couple of photos from our "cabins." The first two shots are from the only day that it rained. I think that was the only time when there weren't any people in the pool!

I really didn't know what to think about the animals in our guest house. All I'll say is that they are amazing creatures. The owner obviously loves to hunt. The above photos were taken in the main house and the photos below are from our smaller house.
