First things first. I finally got some help for my boofy mushroom head of a hair-do. Here is the before and after:
Quite the improvement, wouldn't cha agree?
Oh boy. The first night rained and rained and rained. We got lucky and grabbed free ponchos before they were all gone.
First thing I ate-fried cheese ravioli--the bomb.
Who else wants one of these in their home?
The girls were good sports!
It is never too rainy for wine:)
You could not have special ordered the weather the next day: perfection!
One afternoon early morning, we went to a place called Holy Hill. It's a huge catholic establishment on a beautiful hill and incredible land. It also use to be a Monastery, which has now been turned into a cafe and of course we had to have some pie!
There were 3 incredible churches in all.
We then explored downtown Milwaukee--hitting Alterra, a coffee shop I had hoped to check out!
We found an amazing Bohemian area on Brady St. in Milwaukee, we loved it.
The whole gang.
I treated myself to some shoes I used to wear in grade school. I am in love! (and to think I use to be embarrassed as a kid to wear these).
Madz got yet another piercing in her ear, that makes 11!
When do you think squash was 5 cents a pound?
This is at an old abandoned farm we found on our way home. We explored it for about 20 minutes, it was awesome!
Annnnnd what I worked on on the drive home--it's coming along!
Milwaukee was filled with family fun, laughter and inside jokes. Good food, tasty desserts and yummy drinks. A lot of new memories were made. I am so thankful to have the privilege to go on trips of any kind--I could never take it for granted.
