Wisconsin, Land of Cheese


We took a little side trip to Milwaukee this weekend to visit some friends. I have heard that Wisconsin is the land of cheese and fireworks, and never having been to Wisconsin, thought that was just the stereotype or an exaggeration. Turns out, this is NOT an exaggeration. As soon as you get into Wisconsin, all the signs you see are for CHEESE, FIREWORKS, and of course, billboards campaigning to elect BRETT FAVRE for King of the World. We stopped at this lovely novelty store, Mars' Cheese Castle, that encompassed all things Wisconsin. Of course, the aforementioned products, cheese heads, beer, cheese curds, Packers paraphernalia, and lots and lots of cow things.

Oh - I forgot - and LOTS of taxidermy on the walls too.
