Much needed

Time away. It was great!

Mic and I made our way up north to Oshkosh for a fun filled weekend full of hand holdin', belly laughin' and irish music.

We started out stopping at Widmer's Cheese Factory in Theresa...




And picked up some delish local cheese... see the sky? BEAUTIFUL..

Then, we traveled farther up nort' and stopped at some weird place that sold over sized lawn ornaments. It was bizarre.. and is actually in the book "Weird Wisconsin". Something to check off of "The List", I suppose.

We then went to the Friendship Trestle Trail that crosses over Little Lake Butte des Morts to the Locks in Menasha--




It was, again, BEAUTIFUL!!!! We were able to walk some of the trail- and enjoy a nice quiet swing until it was time to check in. After a quick shower, it was time for Greg and Mo to pick us up and head over to the Leach Amphitheater for the first annual Oshkosh Irishfest.




We had a BLAST!!! Lots of great music, people watching, and of course conversation. We were able to make our way over to some local gay bars and then headed to bed.

This morning we woke up 4.5 hours early thanks to a shitty alarm clock in the hotel room, Mic was already showered and ready and I was about to shower before we discovered the error. I VERY QUICKLY jumped back into the still warm bed until we got up to meet some old friends for breakfast.

When we got home, Rebecca was already all moved in and prepared to fulfill her duties as worlds best housemate.

After reviewing the photos from the weekend and realizing we have a lot of photos of the tops of our heads (trying to get the location of the photos in the background..) or of Mic with other people -- (trying to prove we actually do have some friends)...that we need to travel with others, or invest in a tripod.
