Wisconsin Recap

(the beach across the road from Conor's parents' house, looking towards Milwaukee)
So, not only do they drink plenty of beer in Wisconsin, but there is the desirable cheddar cheese that I totally forgot to mention in my last post! And we consumed a TON of it. As in, dinner ends & the cheese comes out. You get home from the bars - out comes the aged cheddar!

(Me & Con at Lake Oconomowoc)
We had a great time: plenty of quality family bonding for Conor, tours of breweries, shopping, lakeside walks, and great dinners out in the city. The verdict is in: I love Milwaukee.

(Con, me, & his dad)
Out & about drinking, what else? Beer! And this set is a prime example of why I have NO nice photos of me & Conor. When told to look at the camera, this is what we ended up with...

Probably the most decent photo of us from the entire trip - & it's certainly not one for the picture frame, if you get what I'm sayin'...

(Ew, so pinkfaced!)
The brewery tour was super interesting. I hope to go on more when I return for another visit. If you drink Miller Lite - one of these cases may end up being yours, ha!

(Miller Lites & Leinenkugels on the "assembly line")

(The Miller Inn at the Miller Brewery)
Conor REALLY wanted to steal the High Life bus. It is his favorite beer, afterall. And the bus was pretty much awesome.

It's taken me forever to get caught back up from all my trips - I just returned from Iowa as well this week. But, only one more week off & back to school! Have a great Memorial Day weekend - I'm hoping mine will be lots of fun!

Looks like so much fun. I laughed out loud at the part about bringing out the cheese....I don't think I could trade chocolate for cheddar!
