Fat Cat Cafe, New Glarus

Monday, November 19th, 2007

The joy of finding good coffee in New Glarus! The Fat Cat Cafe opened during the summer in an old building on the train tracks. It’s a quick walk from the hotel. There are lots of nooks and crannies for kids to crawl in.

Ed is in front – tied with Dad! And the tie breaker will be the game tonight! If Tennessee wins then it will be Ed in front. If Denver wins, then it will go to Dad. Go me!

New Glarus Hotel Dinner

Monday, November 19th, 2007

We had an excellent dinner at the New Glarus Hotel last night, with Mary, Larry and Batie. We met Hans, the owner of the Hotel, and the chef Roland came out to see us after we had finished. Food was good; presentation very good. Coffee was lacking a bit.

The day had been a good one, with a GREAT adventure in Madison. We met an interesting person and toured an historically interesting monument. More details on this later in the week, when I post pictures.

Just Arrived in New Glarus

Chicago – completed!

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

The airplane trip was a great adventure! Dan-dan and Camillla both had window seats and were able to watch everything. We landed in Chicago, had a fight with Budget over rental cars, then took their minivan off to Cally’s. Cally entertained the older kids while Ed worked and Gabi took care of Aaron. Pizza for everyone.

This morning, we are off to New Glarus.
