midwestern adventures

Dan and I took a 4-day road trip this past weekend to visit family and friends in Milwaukee, WI, and Madison, WI. We had good times catching up and eating too much. ;) We also had a couple of low-key midwestern adventures . . .

A trip to the Mitchell Park Domes, a humongous, three-room plant conservatory:

AND, a visit to the shoreline of Lake Michigan:

It was flippin' cold, but worth it! :)

Back to the grind tomorrow. Why are vacations always over too quickly??

I definitely didnt see that you said mke at first. And then I saw the dome and I was I knew I saw those plants before...Hope you had a good time. Im only still getting to try some of the vegan-friendly establishments, but they do exist.

Also, too lazy to post on another, but I looooove netflix too. I could probably be their official salesperson. I have the Roku Player too. The best 100 dollars ever spent.
