My mentor, the record store, tacos, ice cream, and a fun TU trip to Milwaukee… and Mr. and Mrs. Phares!

I had my weekly meeting with Bill, my photo mentor. 🙂 We often go to Emy J’s, and if I have time, we go visit Randy at Radio Kaos.

I love visiting actual record stores. There is something special about it, and Randy is awesome. I usually ride my bike for my errands, and this was no exception. I often take a little detour just so I can see one of my favorite smiley faces in the tar.

In fact, when I was running this week, I found a new one…

Too cute.
Friday afternoon, I headed back over to Central Waters to catch Tortuga Express, a food truck to be featured in Hoopla. If you’re not hungry now, you will be!

Brian and I ate those delicious tacos for dinner, and swung by King Cone for dessert. I knew about their delicious homemade ice cream from a photo shoot that I’d done a few months ago, and I wanted Brian to taste it for himself!

We took our ice cream to go, and headed down to Milwaukee. We stayed with my TU friend, Henry, since we had our first family work day planned for Saturday morning!
It was incredibly adorable. We encouraged parents to come to the work day and bring along their kids- we had a coloring table with trout pictures, an entomology station, a fish shocking station, and a chance for the kids to help us put in spawning gravel. We had the DNR guys come on out to help, and the kids loved playing with the bugs! They got right in the stream and helped us use the kick nets. The kids seemed to love it, and I think the parents also learned a bit. 🙂

We grilled out for lunch, and Brian and I headed out quickly to get to Stacey and Ron’s Minnesota wedding. A few hours of driving, a stop for iced coffee, and we made it just in time for dinner and dancing!

We met this beautiful couple through the small group at our church. We love these guys! 🙂 Robert was the officiant, and the rest of our small group (minus Pam) came to celebrate, too!

Our handsome small group men are what keeps the ladies coming back for more theology and bible study! Haha. 🙂

Congratulations, Ron and Stacey! We are so happy for you two. Thank you for inviting us to celebrate with you… We wish you a lifetime of love!

We stayed in a hotel over in Winona, and after we slept in a little bit, we headed out for a Driftless area adventure.
More to come in my next post…
