Let's see... where did I leave off? Ah, yes, Day 3.Day 3 (con't):
I already told you we went to the Farmer's Market at the capitol building. So, first off is the promised layout of the food and fun at the event (layout 1). Next, we picked up Tysen's grandmother (on his dad's side) and took her to lunch at Pasqual's
and then for custard at Micheal's
across the street (layout 2). Then, in the evening, we went to Tysen's aunt's wedding party (the main purpose of this trip to Wisconsin). The party was held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Student Union and included a surprise visit by Bucky Badger (the school's mascot) and enjoying the Madison fireworks display along the lake (layouts 3, 4, and 5). Here are the layouts:Scraplift of an Ali Edwards design.Based on sketch by Valerie Salmon.Based on sketch by Becky Higgins.Bonus layout:I didn't take any of the photos in this layout, but I needed a filler page from the Madison events so my 2-page layouts wouldn't be separated. So, a University of Wisconsin-Madison layout seemed appropriate.Day 4:
On Sunday, July 1st, we hung out with family in Madison and said good-bye to some who headed back home. We, however, were staying in Wisconsin for a few more days. So, we had breakfast at Bluephies
with family, then went to a local pool for some sun and swimming, then heading to Milwaukee to stay with Tysen's other grandmother (mother's side). There really aren't any layouts from today, other than a filler layout showcasing some of the buildings in Milwaukee.Day 5:
We intended to get up and go to some museums, but instead we slept in a bit then headed out for one of the beaches along Lake Michigan (layout 1). After spending some time there, we did a bunch of shopping...Sprecher
(layout 2), Atomic Records
, and American Science & Surplus
. For dinner that night, we invited over one of the Serebin families (there are 7 families in total) for dinner and we cooked a pasta meal with the fresh pesto we got from the farmer's market. And, after dinner, we had frozen custard at Kopp's
(layout 3).Based on a sketch by Valerie Salmon.Day 6:
On our last full day in Wisconsin, July 3rd, we joined up with some family and went to the Milwaukee Zoo
(layouts 1 and 2). A third layout of birds from the zoo is planned and will come later. Also, photos from the 1-hr long fireworks show in Milwaukee is also to come.Based on a Becky Higgins sketch in the October 2007 issue of Creating Keepsakes.Scraplift from the Oct. 2007 issue from Creating Keepsakes.
Alright, that's all for now... more to come, eventhough I'm almost done with my Wisconsin pictures, I've printed a few photos from our Arizona trip from the end of July.
