Picture Perfect Milwaukee Day

Summer in Milwaukee is absolutely the BEST. It is unbelievable that it is almost the 4th of July, which seems to always indicate the high point of summer.

Last Saturday was an absolutely glorious day and we packed a lot into it. After a nice 5 mile run through our favorite Lake Park we headed down to the lakefront with some coffee in hand to watch a rugby tournament and enjoy the day. Scenes like the one below make me want to buy a boat, regardless of how my stomach feels about the waves on Lake Michigan.

After our lakefront adventure, we spent some time relaxing by the pool. From there we headed out to dinner at Buckley's with our good friends Tom and Maria. We dined outside (huge win for Milwaukee) and I can safely say I had the best lobster roll of my life, if not in existence.

Then, for the grand finale we saw STEVIE WONDER in concert at Summerfest. Best, most relaxing, joyful concert ever.

Isn't he lovely?
Aside from this wonderful day, June has been lots of fun. We have done lots of celebrating as Stephen and Christopher turned 30. It was wonderful - they turned 30 and I got to see so many dear friends and family without turning 30.

We are hoping to travel more in July and August. In the meantime, we are trying to soak up summer in Milwaukee, all the while holding as many babies as we can--and we have quite a few in our life right now!
