We're heading off to Milwaukee tomorrow for my brother in law's graduation from college. John and I decided it would be best to drive out there so that John could avoid being in an airplane with who knows how many sick people. He still have the immune system of a baby, so we need to be really cautious. Anyway, I am very excited for many reasons. One, this is the first trip that we have taken since last summer, since John's relapse. It feel so good that he is allowed to go further than an hour away. Second, I've never been to that area of the U.S. before (well actually, I went to Chicago once, but I'm not going to count it) and I really love road trips. I'm taking along several projects with the hope that I'll get some finished objects. I'll be working on some Dear Jane blocks that need to be appliqued and then this luscious yarn that has been sitting around my house since the fall. I still need to find something to make with it though. Any suggestions?
Speaking of suggestions, anyone know of anything fun to do or an absolute must see while we're in Milwaukee? We'll be there for almost a week so I'm sure we'll need something to do! We might try to stop at Indiana Dunes on the way back. Has anyone been there? Just want to know if it's worth it.
I'll be back next week, hopefully with lots of finished things to show!
