Today we made a trip to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, home of the Experimental Aircraft Association which hosts the Airventure show every summer, an event that draws about 800,000 people to a town of 65,000.  But the real reason we went there was because it was the birthplace of Oshkosh B’gosh, maker of children’s clothing.  Before Everett was born, all I knew about children was what I learned from a half hour video on Netflix and that they wear Oshkosh B’gosh overalls, the kind that look like a train engineer’s.  And we didn’t realize until recently that it’s just up the road on Lake Winnebago, so we made a pilgrimage there today.  Other highlights:

-Despite the warm temperatures, the lake was still frozen and we saw an incredible number of fishing huts, trucks and ATVs on the ice.

-We stumbled onto the best restaurant in town where the menu listed Wisconsin fondue: Schlitz and cheddar cheese.  It’s not wine and Emmental, but it wasn’t bad either.
