A Busy Summer Week

The past week and a half has been super busy, but that means I've been out and enjoying the beautiful summer weather.

We went up north last weekend. We started out trip out in Appleton at High Cliff State Park.
There was a stop at the History Museum at the Castle to see the Houdini exhibit. 
 And they had a really cool neon exhibit there temporarily too.
We had lunch at Tom + Chee for the first time! They were on Shark Tank and funded by Barbara.
I insisted on getting a Dairy Queen cupcake when we got back to town. It's just like their ice cream cakes, but in a cupcake form! So delicious.
Being at the lake is always calming and I enjoy watching the birds, like this group of nearly 50 geese.

The work week was pretty typical.

I completed a bingo sheet for the Milwaukee Public Library's Adult Bingo summer reading challenge program!
We got our latest Door to Door Organics order, which was a good one.
I added a Chia Pod to my order and it was pretty good. I'd love to try another flavor. Banana was OK.
On Thursday night, I headed to the Milwaukee Art Museum for a lecture on Van Gogh with my co-worker! I learned a lot about him and got all art history geeky after.
This past weekend, we went to the East side of Milwaukee for some food and the Air and Water show. After a long day outdoors in the heat, I insisted we go to Kopps for some bienenstichkuchen custard. It was so good.
 I wore my favorite summer dress from Target. So comfortable!
Sunday was German Fest with my parents! There was so much to do, eat, and see and I wish I could have gone all three days. It's been about 8 years since my last visit to the fest.
Mom (or I should say "Mutti") ordered a Milwaukee Pretzel Company pretzel the size of my torso. I also got some Obatzda dip, which was delicious.
What a fun day at German Fest!
I'm looking forward to a calmer week and weekend!
