All Caught UP!!!

Well I am officially caught up on my blogging. Not everything is in the right order, I kind of just did it when I had time, and I remembered I hadn't posted everything but hear ya go. Sorry if it's confusing =) Enjoy!

Our Summer Accomplishment

Well in about June, we decided to do a Half Marathon- didn't sound that bad at the time. Then we started training for it and man I realized how hard running really was and why I hadn't done much of it before this. As time went on it got easier. Our longest run was 10 miles and it was pretty hard so coming into this race I was a little nervous, so was Dave. We got up at 5 a.m. and drove two hours to the Cheesehead Half Marathon. This was our before picture. Nervous, clean, and ready to get it over with.

This was after we finished! We did it! The weather was perfect and it was flat road almost the whole road. I was proud with my time of 2 hours and 2 minutes. I ran the whole time, even though it felt like I was walking at times, and Dave finished a little after I did. We were glad to have it done. I don't know how people do full marathons. They have my full respect. I would do it again, but I need to let my left knee recover. It hurt really bad during the race and hurts worse today. Yay for us!

Can't Believe It's Been One Year

We decided to celebrate our First Anniversary by going up to Door County for the weekend. On our way there, we decided we had to stop at the famous Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. We are officially Wisconsinites. We have visited their coveted field. It was nice, but I would not want to spend all day there =)

My Favorite Cheesehead

The SUnsets in Door County are beautiful.

Beautiful Door County

Door County is an awesome spot up in Northern Wisconsin on a little strip past Green Bay. It's like the Cape Cod of Wisconsin. It was so much fun and it had such cute little towns and shops. It was the perfect place to spend our Anniversary.
We went to this Scandinavian Restaurant for breakfast and they have real live goats up on the roof who eat the grass- it was hilarious! And the food was so yummy...
For our Anniversary dinner we went to a really nice restaurant and had a great meal, but the highlight was the was the most amazing triple berry cobbler we have ever had. We still talk about it.
Playing on Lake Michigan- it's weird to think this is the same lake we have in Milwaukee- it's soooo big!
So we decided to rent a paddle boat and this is what they gave us. It was the oldest thing I've ever seen, but it was worth the experience=)
Sailing was awesome! It was so much and the weather was perfect for it.

Happy 4th of July!

Even though fireworks, ALL fireworks, are outlawed in Milwaukee we decided to light up some sparklers and have a little fun...Daring I know =)

We went down to Lake Michigan and rode our bikes around it. It was so pretty and a really fun ride!
We had to make it to a Brewers game over the summer and Dave's Med School played Marquette in a baseball game and so we got some cheap tickets. It was a great weekend!
