Good morning! this week we stopped at west allis’ deliciously unique peanut butter & jelly deli, milwaukee’s funky swing park & a trip to an old school baseball card shop called name that card where you can meet one of milwaukee’s most charismatic personalities! you can read more about each stop on my site.
this morning we are getting ready to head “up north” to kick off summer at the cabin! we will also talk about the meaning of memorial day and why it is so important to recognize the people in our country who have worked so hard to protect it.
and we will optimistically cheer on the bucks!😂what will you be up to?! hope you have a great weekend! ❤️jill 🇺🇸

Milwaukee’s swing park is our family’s new post-brunch favorite stop! i’m grateful to have @visiblemobile as a partner this spring to keep our mobile connection strong as we explore! it is fun to use a service that is completely app-based. and at $40 per month for unlimited service - we have money left for more bucket list adventures! thanks @visiblemobile for being a great #brandpartner ❤️

Hello! we kicked off our summer of adventure and our son cy’s birthday with a mom-and-son trip to a day game at miller park yesterday. my husband called ahead and had them add cy’s name to the birthday announcement list on the scoreboard. (anyone can do it for a small fee.) that, combined with a win, 3 home runs, great seats (from great-grandpa) and the catching of a game ball made for a pretty epic birthday outing! the kid got some new brewers socks too. 🤣 bucket list adventure 1✔️ #thisismycrew

Hello! my family and i made it to minnesota for spring break and to do some work for @artofedina we had an amazing turn out last night for the @artofedina community art gallery launch party.
our drive here yesterday was about 5 hours long and i spent the time dreaming up ideas for a milwaukee - wisconsin - midwest bucket list.
i think my goal this summer is to introduce my boys (& husband) to all the adventures we can find in our new state and the midwest! please pass on any suggestions of what to add to my list! i am feeling motivated after spending the past month on the couch!😂❤️jill

{april showers} inspired by today’s crazy weather which sort of feels like a rain cloud following us about. ❄️🌧❤️ also, a shout out to the stranger who “helped” me direct my husband where to stand/hold the brella while i was crouched down at a puddle shooting this.😂 afterwards my husband was like “you know that guy?” nope. just a random friendly fella. 😂 #shotoniphone
