I am back from my trip to Milwaukee and I had a fabulous time! The weather was perfect, between 72-78 everyday and beautiful balmy nights; I slept with the windows and doors opened and listened to the sounds of the night that I do not normally hear where I live. Some nights I heard trains off in the distance and imagined where they were going and what adventures their passengers were going on, or what goods were going where. Other nights I hears sirens and hoped that if they were an ambulance that the people were OK. But most nights I heard crickets and birds frolicking and lightening bugs dancing.
My room at my moms is on the second floor and there are wonderful views from all of the windows; I feel as if I am sleeping in the tree tops and I see the stars and the storm clouds and many nights the moon. The crisp smell of Fall was definitely in the the air!
Aside from work, I was there to help in the family business, I spent much needed time with my family. As I do not live near my family I love every minute that I can share with them.
On my first day there I saw and air and water show, a triathlon and visited some of my favorite places from childhood. Whew! There is always a lot going on here.
These are a few of the sights.
