Hello everyone? Did you miss me the way I missed you? It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post. I’ve had a really exciting few weeks. First, I took a week long class in interview based/documentary theatre. It was amazing. But more on that in my next blog post (exciting stuff!!!!).
Then me, Ken and Oliver took a trip to the midwest. We wanted to visit Ken’s sister who now lives with her wife in Madison, Wisconsin so we decided to make a vacation out of it. We flew into Chicago, spent two days there, then rented a car and drove to Door County, WI, and ended in Madison. There were so many highlights I want to share. Again, there will be a multitude of Oliver pictures. We did so much during this vacation and I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. But I always feel that way. There’s always so much I want to do and I never want to miss out. So, here is our trip from beginning to end. You can click on each image to see what we did!
Day 1: Chicago – Railroads, Millennium Park, Trains, Lake Michigan and The Aquarium
On day 1, Ken and I also went to the most amazing restaurant, Alinea. It’s one of the top restaurants in the world and Ken has been wanting to go for as long as I can remember. You can watch a documentary about this chef of Chef’s Table on Netflix. He’s a genius. Here, we are eating a balloon made out of strawberry taffy, filled with helium. You can eat the string too!!!
Day 2: Chicago – Neighborhood Exploring, Murals, Pie, River Walk, Navy Pier
Day 3 was a travel day to Door County, WI but because we had a car rental mishap, we lost the day. But thankfully, we got there safely in the end.
Day 4: Door County, WI – Rainy Day, Lighthouse Exploring, Rough Lake Beaches.
Day 5: Door County, WI – Beaches, Cliffs, The Clear Water of Lake Michigan
On Day 6, we traveled to Madison. On the way we stopped for a cheese tasting and at night, with Ken’s sister, we went to a Friday Fish Fry and I tasted my first fried cheese curds. Nomnomnom!!!!
Day 7: Madison, WI – Farmer’s Market, Children’s Museum, Capital Building
Day 8: Madison, WI – Exploring Madison
Day 9: Madison, WI – Last Day. I didn’t take too many pictures this day. We mostly explored again but we got super tired and stayed low key.
So, this is what I’ve been up to. If you actually looked at all of these pictures, you are my hero.
Happy Labor Day, everyone!!! Can you believe summer is over?
