It was a scorcher this past weekend in Wisconsin. Although I don’t like the air conditioner on (Wisconsin summers are to short to have the house closed up), I welcomed the fact that we could turn it on and get some relief from the heat.
Yesterday we had a party to celebrate my dad’s retirement. He had planned on retiring last year but with my mom being so sick, he needed to keep working so that their insurance wasn’t disrupted. Now that she’s all better, he’s finally able to retire and rumor is, he’s loving it! Although quite warm, it was a beautiful day in spite of the forecast and we enjoyed being together with our extended family. I thought I’d share a few pictures from the day
Fun was had by all ages. We had bubbles and hula hoops for everyone to play with
Michael manned the grill for us
Do you know how you know you’re from Wisconsin? There’s always brats!
Plenty of desserts
Oh yeah, we threw in some healthy food too. This is my mom’s Tomato and Black Bean Salad
So – Happy Retirement pop! I hope it’s long and filled with much happiness and joy!
After such an exciting weekend, I’ll be laying relatively low this week. As of now, I don’t have a lot of plans so I’m going to just try to spend some time on my patio in the evening and relax.
I did accidently have a box of Plated sent to me so this week’s menu is a bit more amped up than the last couple of weeks where we pretty much had only brats and hamburgers.
Fontina Stuffed Chicken
Plus the cook-out and my parents and I’ll throw brats and hamburgers on the grill as well one night.
That’s it for me, what are you serving this week?
I’ll be linking up at I’m an Organizing Junkie.
