A Sailor's Life for Me!

Aside from a major storm on Saturday, we had nice little weekend. Craig had grad class so the kids and I were bumming around, beating the humidity. Unfortunately, that ended in Kelsey misplacing her favorite stuffed animal - a mini purple care bear, sweetly named after "Baby Benson." I Google searched for a replacement while the kids took a bath and had to play it off that a new Baby Benson was going to come in the mail and, "Oh! How fun it will be to get the mail!" So I was slightly worried about nap/bed time since she ALWAYS has him with her but she seems to be dealing okay. It was shipped already via snail mail, so we'll see how long it takes for it to get here!

On Sunday we headed out to the farmer's market, before meeting some friends for lunch. I received a text as we were about to leave, asking if we had life jackets for the kids, we could meet them for a boat ride on the Milwaukee River. Fortunately, we had a couple hand-me-downs in the house and the kids were excited. I was preparing for them to not want to wear the life jackets than to dislike the actual boat ride. Drew is obsessed with any vehicle that moves so we were pretty sure this would be the ride of his life. It ended up being such a nice time and the kids handled it all so well - we even drove FAST:) We took the boat down the river to a local pub/brewery and ended up having to wait to be seated. The friends we were with don't have small children so they were concerned when they told us we might be waiting over 30 min for a table and it was already one o'clock. But Kelsey and Drew were content with the sand volleyball courts, cups of ice, a couple of pet dogs to say hi to, and an oversize Jenga set!
