Wednesday morning we crossed over into Wisconsin!
 Our destination for the morning was Madison, the capital.
We walked along the pretty square around the capitol building and had lunch at a restaurant that was recommended by Max's secretary, who is from Madison.
We had an amazing lunch at Great Dane Brewery and Pub.
 Of course I had to get my hands on some cheese and what better way than with Macaroni and Cheese.  Oh but this was not any normal Mac-N-Cheese.  This was like fireworks exploding in your mouth Mac-N-Cheese.  My mouth is watering now as I think back to that glorious meal.  We did family style and I also got to sample (eat half) of Monty's Brawt and Bacon burger.  Pure taste bud bliss!  Make a patty out of a bratwurst and then add some of the nicest bacon and Wisconsin cheddar on top and you have a modern day masterpiece!  And I gained 5 pounds to remind me for the next month how great our trip was. :)  
The beer sampler was great too.  If you are ever in town, this is the place to eat!
 Just when you didn't think it could get any better...
Also along the square is Fromagination.  We were able to pick up a nice variety of cheeses for our souvenir.  Unfortunately none made it home as we promptly devoured them in Iowa.  Monty had died and gone to stinky cheese heaven.  We thought we may have lost him in the land of cheese.  He reminded me of a kid in a candy shop.  The lady behind the counters eyes lit up when Monty asked if she had anything more disgusting than Lindburger.  Ah, a fellow cheese head!
 We had a pretty cheesy time in Wisconsin!

So, how many states do you have marked off the map?! Still think you need to re-do MT as your trip here may have been pre-family-50. ;)
