May 20, 2016


Happy weekend! It’s feeling much more summerish this weekend with these higher temps, which is taking us straight into a beautiful weekend. Can’t wait! We are heading to Lake Madison to the in-laws cabin to celebrate Dan’s 71st birthday. Happy Birthday! Should be a spectacular weekend, can’t wait to grill, have some brewskis, and lounge on the beach! Hope you have a great weekend!
