Wisconsin Trip

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent 2 weeks with my family in Milwaukee. I left James home. Sadly, I didn't take very many pictures, for a good reason, I was too busy shopping my way through Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana! Here's a recap of some of my adventures:

My parents picked me up at the airport and we drove straight to Kohl's to clothes shop because the airline lost my luggage. A few days later, I received my dearly missed suitcase!

We had a yummy BBQ at my sister's house.

We visited Lake Geneva. It's a beautiful lake with gigantic mansions on it and great shopping! It would have been a little more enjoyable if it wasn't 109 degrees that day.

We went to a huge farmer's market at the state capitol in Madison. I got some really good Banana Bread. Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE banana bread!
We rode bikes to watch the 4th of July parade. There were many tractors in the parade. That's something you don't see in California!
We went to Cedarburg, WI. This is beginning to become a tradition. I've blogged about this place a few years ago.

We took a road trip and stopped at multiple places to shop. Our first stop was IKEA. We eventually made our way to my hometown in Indiana. We got there late in the afternoon, met up with my other 2 sisters and niece, had dinner, went to the beach to take some pictures, and then called it a night. The next morning, we hit the road early and headed out to Shipshewana, In. This is an adorable Amish town. They have a gigantic flea market with homemade furniture, food, and crafts.

We brought my niece back  with us to Milwaukee. I was so happy to be able to spend the last few days of my trip with her.

We went to the Racine Zoo, where we rode a camel and a train and got caught in the rain!


I know I left out a lot of things, but here are a few of the highlights. Can't wait to see my family again!
