This was quite possibly the best Fourth of July weekend I have ever had! Anna, a fellow blogger and one of my best friend's from college, kicked off the weekend by hosting a party on the third (thanks!). Paul flew in Wednesday morning then we spent the day cruising around Lake Michigan on a friend's boat. It's been decided that I will have a boat when I grow up. On Friday we packed our bags (see some of the items from yesterday's post), stopped by my parent's house to see their new sofa (me likey), then drove up to Madison to hang out with Paul's siblings and nephew. I'm without a doubt a city girl but sometimes it's nice to escape to the suburbs....Paul's sister lives in a darling house just a block away from a lake. We went on a nice walk with the kids (P's nephew and my dog), got bagels at the farmers market, went to the pool, and had drinks on the roof of the modern art museum. I love summer, I love weekends...now back to reality. How was your holiday?
