1000 Islands And A Drive Home

What are the chances we have French toast two times in one week?

If we had bread in our house more often it would be a regular occurrence.

After breakfast Meadow was up to no good.

I was in the kitchen when I hear Meadow run in giggling. Then I see she has bows on her feet.

The weather was unusually warm and we were in no rush to get home. I suggested going for a walk at 1000 Islands.

The one in Kauakana, not in Canada.

It was the perfect opportunity to try out my new winter hiking shoes from Costco.

It felt more like Easter than Christmas.

I'm not sure if there are actually 1000 islands, but there were quite a few.



After checking the trail map we decided to keep going a few extra miles. Stay on the trail Meadow.

When in the Fox Valley you know a paper mill isn't far out of sight.

We had plans to check out the historical marker which only revealed that there was a road that the traders used to trade with the Natives across the river.

Meadow liked the lookout point better.

Mr. Mike's got a karate trophy on his dash.

When we got in the house we were surprised to see Morgan was over. Even though we hadn't seen her in almost two years it didn't seem that unusual to see her at my parents house.

I then drove home. We took Wisconsin 29 for the first time in forever. We saw a Mexican place. They had a buffet. Brooke ordered something off the menu and  I made the leap. Cross Mexican Buffet off my imaginary bucket list.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
