A Saturday of Awesomeness!

Picture post :)

The hubby and I spent the day together on Saturday. We went to the Wisconsin State Fair and walked around Milwaukee  A very fabulous day.

(not all pictures were taken by me or hubby)

We started out the day going to the Wisconsin state fair! W e walked around there for about 2 1/2 hours.

Look I found Betsy! 

I couldn't help myself. It was so hot that I was literally dripping with sweat at this point.

After the fair we went and got lost in Milwaukee. We parked next to this wonderful little market .

Here is a top view from the inside. A lot of little eateries and deli type places. Also they had a couple of very small bars and a small specialty spice store. 

After that we walked around the lake front...

...Then by the river that ran through the city. Very beautiful and about  2  1/2 hours more of walking. 

After all that walking we went for dinner at an amazing restaurant!  The safe house. You have to know the password to get in. It's a great atmosphere and great food! I had an herb cheese spread with pita appetizer for dinner :)

We had such a great time! I know for a fact that I wouldn't have been able to have such a wonderful day 60lbs ago! Overall we walked about 10 miles. I think I might have sweat at least a gallon too. I love my band!

Have a happy Monday everyone!
