Well Gene was kind-of the smooth dancer… maybe it’s Donald  – he always made me laugh… Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du
Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du….I’m singin’ in the rain….Just singin’ in the rain,….What a glorious feeling,….And I’m happy again.
Didn’t Fred record this one too? Maybe it’s Fred and Debbie….I’m laughing at clouds….So dark, up above,….The sun’s in my heart….Du Du Du Du Du…

Let the stormy clouds chase….Everyone from the place,….Come on with the rain….I have a smile on my face….I’ll walk down the lane….With a happy refrain… Just singin’, singin’ in the rain….Dancing in the rain….I’m happy again….I’m singin’ and dancin’ in the rain.,,,,Dancin’ and singin’ in the rain.

Our second day in Steven’s Point we went biking. First we headed into town to have breakfast and check out the farmer’s market. Then through a nature preserve where we saw a deer and climbed in the tree house. After church we took the kids to the beach to cool off. It was another perfect day – except that I’m a little saddle sore:)

This weekend we went hiking at Rib Mountain State Park near Steven’s Point. We were hanging with our friends Todd, Sara, Maggie, and Aubrey. It was a perfect day of fun with the kids and the challenge of Mountain Climbing!

Okay, it’s not technically a mountain — it is almost 4 miles long and peaks at 1,924 feet above sea level and 760 feet above the local terrain, the highest difference of height from peak to surrounding terrain in the state of  Wisconsin.

Local legend states that the ‘ribs’ in Rib Mountain come from the legend that it is the burial site of Paul Bunyan. Furthermore, nearby Mosinee Hill is said to be the grave of Babe the Blue Ox.

Even if it was not a mountain – it was a challenging 1.38 mile hike — Really is that all it was? Wow – I really thought is was longer than that!
