Over the weekend we decided to get out of town and go camping in BRF. The Black River flows through town AND Lake Wazee is also there which is the deepest lake in WI. We spent time swimming at the lake and then found our place to camp- the campground was a state forest campsite that was awesome- nice sites in the woods- not hot at all, huge playground for Pete to play on and lots of pinecones to pick up. The one small drawback? The quantity of mammoth sized mosquitoes that swarmed from dawn to dusk. This is one of the main reasons that I have very few pictures of us actually at the campsite- Peter didn't seem to mind them too much as long as I had him sprayed up. Before we went camping I asked Peter what it meant to go camping, he told me that you sleep in a tent and eat outside and that those things made him happy. He was still talking about it tonight at bedtime along with those pinecones.

Katie- my roommate for three year and her sister and her (unborn) baby boy came down to Winona for the night to visit! We spent lots of time talking babies and baby gear but also played some dominoes, had a picnic at SMU and had Pete show us around campus.(Doesn't campus look so beautiful in the summer??)

Mike and Julie's daughter, Sarah got married this weekend- it was absolutely beautiful and a super fun party! We brought the kids with us for a while and then they got picked up and we got to have some fun of our own. Petey made it through abotu 2/3 of the ceremony when he called out for Julie- who then turned around and started to look for him... the final straw was when he told us he was a baby owl and started to hoot.
Emelia made it though with the help from her friend Sophie.
