We had a great weekend with family and friends. On Friday we went to Door County to see my cousin and her husband for dinner. They were in town for vacation and it was so fun to see her. She is a vet and has been living in North Carolina until this past month when she moved back to Wisconsin. We had our typical grill out with brats and hamburgers. The star for Kellen was to two ears of corn and 3 pieces of watermelon he put down the hatch- the kid has a hollow leg these days.
On Saturday, we headed to the farmer's market to pick up fresh fruit and garlic scapes. Afterwards, Ron needed to get some school work done so Kellen and I headed to the Wildlife Sanctuary and lunch with my girlfriend and her children. Her son and Kellen and 10 days apart and they are absolutely adorable to watch run and play.
On Saturday evening my Father in Law was kind enough to watch Kellen so Ron and I could go out for a date during restaurant week. We went to a new to us place called Bleu. The place is delightful and has a unique cieling of puzzled together doors. The food is rustic, but modern. We both had crab caked, new york strip, but I opted for the caramelized pound cake and Ron the dark chocolate pudding.
On Sunday we met my sister in law, brother in law, niece, nephew and father in law at Bay Beach to go on rides and let the kids play. The adults even got to try the new (ish) roller coaster, The Zippin' Pippin' due to a nice grandpa volunteering to watch the kids. After Bay Beach we has lunch and went over to the water park for a quick swim. Kellen cried for a while, but slowly decided that he liked the water and splashing the adults. Sunday evening ended with relaxation at home and grilled shrimp.
Tonight I am meeting a few friends for restaurant week and maybe a few cocktails. On Tuesday my work has a picnic and with a volleyball tournament. I have played bar league for almost 7 years and jump at a chance to play! Wednesday we will have our usual volleyball game at the bar and have a few relaxing nights the remainder of the week.
Have a great week!
