Last Week in Moments

Brian took off on Friday, so we spent the afternoon at Panga and rented SUPs for 4 hours. H & C got dropped off after tennis so used them too.

Look who else joined in the action! She wasn't perfect, but did better than we thought. She preferred being on land and shallow water, and spent most of her day swimming.

We had the best weekend! Yvonne flew in from LA, and Bill & Raluca came in from Chicago. On Saturday, they came over for lunch then we went to the Lynden Sculpture Garden. It is such a great place. Here we are under Quartet by Forrest Myers. That evening we went to Centro Cafe -- another one of our favorites.

On Saturday, we went to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and had so much fun. We spent 5 hours there, and even the boys lasted. I could have spent all day in You and I, Horizontal (II) by Anthony McCall. It was magical.

The boys and Yvonne. Cuties! H&C were absolutely smitten by our friends, and I don't blame them. They are pretty great!

That evening, we had had dinner at Goodkind. I was dying to try it, and it did not disappoint.

Yvonne was going to spend two nights with us, then find somewhere to stay and write. She ended up staying the next two night with us too though. Frankly, this made me so happy -- I would have had a hard time knowing she was close by and that I wasn't seeing her. Bill & Raluca left to go back to Chicago on Monday. We went to the pool and had dinner at home. On Tuesday, we took the boys to see The Secret Life of Pets. So funny! Afterwards, we took a walk in Lions Den Gorge. The water was stunning.

We all could have spent hours just sorting through rocks, and taking in the trees and lake. It was gorgeous. On Wednesday, C had tennis so we went there and spent the afternoon out on the lake. Then I had to take Yvonne to the airport (insert sad face).

C had tennis again on Friday, so H played golf with Nina & Papa. After tennis, they went to the driving range. Can't believe how good they have gotten! Way better than me. That's for sure.
