We’re back. It’s been a nice vacation, but I’m glad to be home. I kind of feel like I need a vacation to recover from my vacation. We actually returned home late Friday night, but I didn’t do much over the weekend. I was trying to stretch the vacation to the last possible moment.
Overall it was a good trip. We spent most of our time in East Troy and Milwaukee, with the last three days in Chicago (above). We got to see most of anne marie’s family in Wisconsin, and my mom in Chicago.
We made it to Kopps, in Milwaukee, twice. They have the best frozen custard ever. If you’re unfamiliar with frozen custard, it’s like ice cream, but much more dense, and “silky”. Kopps also has just about the best burger I’ve ever had. If you find yourself in the Milwaukee area, I highly recommend going.
Chicago is a nice city. I’ve never really spent any time there. My previous trips were just lay-overs at midway. We mostly walked around town, or took the free trolly. We did make it out to the Aquarium, and an architectural boat tour of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, that was pretty fun.
I’m still playing catch-up, but I have lots of pictures to post from our trip when I get time to go through them. The day before we left I bought an iPod Camera Connector. I’m so glad I did. I have a 1GB SD card, but I shot almost 3GB of movies and stills with my Canon SD300, and I didn’t bring my laptop to clear off the images. The camera connector worked great. I highly recommend it.
