For a while, we used to travel to Milwaukee every summer around the 4th of July to visit my cousin. It seemed like a good time to go – summer (warm weather vs. freezing cold Midwest winters), Summerfest, and a long weekend. Inexplicably, my husband and kids fell in love with Milwaukee. Then again, I guess I have too since I elected to travel here by myself earlier in April.
It was a fun weekend. We visited some new places like Discovery World and the Lynden Sculpture Garden (which is really beautiful and you should visit if you’re in the area) and visited old favorites like the pool and Friday Fish Fry at Lakefront Brewery. There was a lot of time spent outside running around.
We spent the afternoon of my birthday at Summerfest, wandering the grounds, listening to music and making a little tie dye. We ended the day with dinner at home, grilling brats, salmon and veggies. I got my wish for birthday pie – apple pie with homemade vanilla ice cream.
The boys had fun. Can you tell?
Thank you for all the birthday wishes!
