The Latest Peacock News

Hello! I'm on vacation this week and got back into town yesterday. Last weekend, we spent a few nights in Sheboygan, WI at a resort that seems to be becoming a twice a year tradition with the Trudeau family. My sister-in-law lives in the neighboring town, Kohler, with her family and my brother-in-law comes up from Ohio with his family. We come from Michigan (duh!) and Trudeau parents are still in Kenosha, WI. Then, we spent a few days with my parents in Racine, WI. So the next few days, while I unwind and organize, I will post details from the trip.

First up, a trip to the Racine Zoo - as I seem to love chasing peacocks all over the Midwest! This is the Zoo in my hometown. It is quaint, and I haven't been there in I don't know how long. While they do not have the 20+ peacocks like the Battle Creek Zoo has, they still had a few who were willing to show off for us!
This is the first time that I have seen a peacock putting it's tail feathers up for view!!! He would turn in circles for everyone to see. He did not seem defensive at all - just wanting to show off!Here I am feeding one (we asked if it was okay for them to have popcorn).
I asked the train driver if I could sit in the peacock car for a picture! In the background, you can see the amphitheater where lots of cool bands play during the summer. With Lake Michigan behind it, it's the perfect evening entertainment!We saw lots of other cool animals too, and I got home just in time to purchase this lovely from Nancy!

What a nice trip, catching up with family. As upper mid westerners with family in Wisconsin we've got a particular love for the area!
