There are many reasons why I like living in Wausau…one of the main ones is that there are so many family activities, many of which are free or really cheap to do.

Local artists, or artist wannabees can “buy” a square on a downtown block known as the 400 block. They then spend Saturday and Sunday decorating their square with chalks. For kids, they can take part in the children’s mural for $2. Andrew and I decided to check out the artwork today and see what he can do. This is a general pic of the 400 block.

Here Andrew is hard at work:
