Breakfast on the farm

This year was the first time we got to Breakfast on the Farm, part of the June Dairy Month celebration! This event rotates to a different farm every year. This year is was in Blue Mounds. It was so hot that day, but it was so fun and worth it for sure. We enjoyed pancakes, […]

Cows and cars

Its Dairy Month in Wisconsin! That means the annual Cows on the Concourse… two weeks ago. We discovered the event when Allie was about a year and a half old and we have gone almost every year since. The kids LOVE seeing the cows up close. Cows on the Concourse wasn’t complete without a drink […]

Miss you Dad

Father’s Day is always bitter sweet for me. This year marks 23 years since my Dad died. One of my friends posted on Facebook today a picture with words something like “I wish I could hug my Dad again.” I don’t remember his hugs. I’ve lived two-thirds of my life without him. I miss him. […]

End of school festivities

Allie didn’t have a kindergarten graduation. And I liked it that way. Instead of graduation, families were invited to school for a presentation showcasing what the kids learned this year. They started with singing some super cute songs. After the songs, the kids each got a gift and a hug from Ms. Connell. We love […]

Brats and bouncy houses

As always, the highlight of Memorial Day weekend was Brat Fest. We’ve been to Brat Fest every year even though they keep hiking up the prices. When I first went to Brat Fest in 2006, everything was $1. This year, my 11th, everything was $3! It gets more expensive and more crowded, but we love […]
