This weekend was super low key and wonderful. On Friday we went for steaks and visited with friends from Madison. Kellen tried a few bites of steak for the first time and gave it a rave toddler review of "mmmmm!". Saturday we went to the Farmer's Market with our friends and picked up lovely produce and a beautiful bunch of colorful flowers. After the market, we bummed around and caught up on house work before grilling our dinner after the afternoon heat died down. On Sunday, we went for breakfast at one of our favorite spots and prepared dinner for Ron's parents. Ron's dad came to look at our deck, which will thankfully be an easy fix, and help cut down a dead tree (yay for firewood!). Ron's mom and I played with Kellen and did a few laps around the yard to watch the tree chopping in action. Later in the evening we feasted on brats, beans, pasta salad, watermelon, grilled corn and my mother-in-law's delicious cake with fresh raspberries. Perfect lazy weekend.
This week is a pretty slow, but it is followed by an exciting weekend! My cousin is getting married and my entire family will be in town. I am really excited to be with everyone and go to a wedding- I love weddings! I am also hoping to get in a trip to the farmer's market to stock up before our week in Door County (yes- an entire week...so excited!).
