On the Road Friday ~ The Dock Coffee, Spooner, Wisconsin

It is time for a road trip.
A few weeks ago a dear friend and her four boys and me with my two boys went on a little adventure. One of our many stops was to The Dock Coffee a new coffee shop in Spooner, Wisconsin. We were not just visiting to have a cup of coffee, but to also check out something fun my husband helped design at The Dock Coffee.

 The owners of The Dock Coffee, also work at Smithco West Inc. the same company my husband works at. My husband is an engineer at Smithco and helped design a couple items at The Dock Coffee.
This is what my boys were all excited to see when we went to visit the coffee shop.
My husband helped design the counter.

 I love this sign. I would not mind having one for my house.
The owners son painted this sign.

Another shot of the counter.
The black and white photo you see are the owners children sitting on the dock.

 Several beautiful antiques.

 Smithco also helped design and make the railing and banister.

 And now for the real fun part of this trip. 
We are so proud of my husband to be part of this. The boys and I got to meet the owners. They are so appreciative of the support. They gave us a glass for my husband.
The boys were so excited to show it to daddy when we got home.

 If you are traveling to Spooner, Wisconsin be sure to stop in at The Dock Coffee. My boys had a smoothie and a malt. I had a mocha. Yummy!

Thank you for coming along today, on an extra special trip.

Have a great weekend.
