Last Week in Moments
H was invited to play in a 3v3 tournament with some of his soccer teammates. They ended up being short a sub so C filled in. Was so fun watching the two brothers play together. Not sure when that is going to happen again // The Frigs came on Saturday night for a visit! So much fun. We had taken them to the Milwaukee Public Market for oysters, walked around the 3rd Ward for a bit, then came home. Chris made homemade tonic, and they had gone to a farmer's market in the am so showed up with an abundance of zucchini blossoms. Needless to say, we ate very well. Love having them!
The next day we went to German Days at Carl Schurtz Park. We went last year too, and they loved it! This year was an absolute blast too. My parents, sister and her family, and my cousin and his family joined us too. Within the first couple minutes, H was working the penny toss // We always make sure to watch the parade -- which is literally 4 minutes long and just a bunch of people marching. Hilarious
We also swam in Moose Lake. I love that lake -- it's really deep, which means you need floatation devices -- but also, it takes some effort to touch weeds at the bottom // On Tuesday, Brian & H went to the PGA in the am, then we all went to the Wisconsin State Fair in the afternoon. One of my first stops is always the roasted corn
The boys rode the giant swing and said they felt sick for two days after. Ha! I can't handle those spinning rides either // Here's Nik Wallenda performing his longest tightrope walk. Pretty cool to see
