Busy bodies

This past weekend was filled with many things.

On Friday night we did a little yard work, had some friends over for pizza and drinks, and then just Matt and I watched a movie once Liam was in bed. The movie we watched was The Host and I actually thought it was pretty good. Has anyone else seen this movie? What did you think of it?

On Saturday we attended the John Michael Kohler Arts Center Midsummer Festival of the Arts. And we purchased a painting from an amazing artist from Milwaukee. It's already hanging above our fireplace and we're in love with it. Matt and I bought it for each other for our anniversary :) Then we went to our friend's daughter's birthday party in the afternoon. Liam had fun bouncing around with the kids. Later in the evening Matt and I went to Stefano's for dinner to celebrate our 6-year wedding anniversary. 

On Sunday we went to Kohler-Andrae State Park for a hike in the dunes and a walk on the beach with Liam. Phew! What a busy weekend.

And on Tuesday and Wednesday Liam and I took a little road trip to my mom's house and Matt's parents' house. Liam had a blast playing with his cousin Rylan at my mom's house :) 

Here are a few photos of all of the above:

The painting we got for our anniversary :) It's a grouping of birch trees by artist Vicki Strobel.

Things that made me smile last week:

Liam splashed around in the pool in our yard

We took a family walk along the bluff

I found two old photographs online of our home! Something I've been looking for for a long time.

We had an impromptu dinner outside with our neighbors (fresh caught salmon & local veggies)

We trimmed some bushes on the side of our house

Liam played with friends at a birthday party and loved it

Matt and I celebrated our 6-year wedding anniversary :)

  1. LOVE the new art! It's beautiful. We have a similar painting in our living room, but the colors are different. Ours looks like a cozy rainy day. We bought it in Vanvouver, which is just fitting :) and reminds us of our many many rainy days there. oh how I miss the rain (and clouds! any clouds!). We are going to be in Kohler the 6th-9th...I would LOVE to get together! I would be happy to drive over and go for a walk with you and Liam or something! Could you send me your e-mail? I know i have it somewhere, but I can't find it.
