    Happy birthday, Liz! And hey, I didn't know you were from Baraboo--we went there last summer to the circus museum and rode a camel and an elephant! Now there's a fun birthday activity to try. :-)
    Liz said...
    Actually Baraboo was where we lived at the time, but I was actually born in Madison.

    I've never seen the museum. I don't think it was there ALL those years ago. We did go to the circus I remember that quite vividly.

    Thanks for the birthday wish.
