Happy Hearts Exploring Wisconsin

It's May Smalls SAL check-in time.  Here's what kept me busy this past month…

My weekend was spent in Milwaukee, WI.  We stopped by Pier Wisconsin, which is situated on Milwaukee's Lakefront.  


We entered the building and headed up to the Rotunda to get a better view of the beautiful blue waters of Lake Michigan.


The view from the outdoor deck was gorgeous.  Docked outside Pier Wisconsin is the Denis Sullivan, the only replica of a 19th century three-masted Great Lake schooner in the world.


We were excited to be able to spend the weekend with our oldest son, whose flew in from NYC to spend the weekend with us. That made my heart happy!


Driving along the lake we passed the Family Kite Festival. I was able to snap a picture of just a few of the hundreds of kites dotting the sky. 


We look forward to returning Wisconsin in mid July and hope that the sun is shining, the sky is blue, the temperature is pleasant, and the weekend is amazing. 


Thanks for stopping by
Until next time…

Those little SB hearts are so cute.
Glad you got to the lakefront, the view is gorgeous.
Isn't that ship awesome?
Did you see the giant Octopus kite?
It was supposed to be 115' long.
I do hope the weather is nice when you return.

Oh, so sweet, all these little SB hearts.
Great pictures you took at Lake Michigan, which we visited two years ago but we were driving up along the Eastern shores. It was a gorgeous trip.
