3rd annual bastille day festival

 a few weekends ago we headed down toward the lake to celebrate bastille day with the yans... 3rd year in a row (honestly, i can't believe we're going on 3 years in milwaukee!).  anyways, it was super fun as always, awesome cheese curds, people watching and of course the famous sidewalk chalk artists and mini eiffel tower.  we were all disappointed that the street performers were taking a break or something when we got there.

 this is a sidewalk chalk drawing of monet painting the lily pond, the artist was very proud that she thought she had achieved a 3-d look, i'm not buying it!  i just think she wanted tips!
 just like the real thing, right?
 it was crazy busy, one of the funniest things we saw were people trying to pick out temporary tattoos.  maybe next year justin!
i guess this will have to do until we can go visit the real one.  in other news, my french is really coming along.

i wish everyday was vacay

i loved our family vacation this summer!  it was non-stop laughs for a whole week.  i promise we did more than eat and parasail... but i figured 20 pictures is enough for this post.  i am really wishing i had another one of these to look forward to!

in other news, 3rd year is amazing.  david has done more around the house/yard in the past week than he has in the past year and it's a non-stop party.  love it!!  he has his first 24 hr call this sunday, so send some energetic vibes his way and feel free to stop by my house, i'll be making lots of food and being very lonely.
