Milwaukee


It’s time to give up summer, I know, I know, it’s nearly the end of October but I really like to hold on to summer for as long as possible. But the air is chilled and leaves are turning so I’m embracing the autumn with open arms.

For the last few years we have made the drive up to Milwaukee for one of our favorite 5Ks, the Milwaukee Beer Run. On our way, and in keeping with our new found love of fall, we stopped by Richardson Adventure Farm to eat some (ok a lot) apple cider donuts and take glamour shots of Franklin with the pumpkins, and he got to meet a goat!

We made it to Milwaukee and our Airbnb was so cool! Nestled in the middle of a beautiful garden we stayed in a little cottage off of the main house at Sanger House Gardens.

Milwaukee has so much to offer, beer, pretzels, markets, cheese, cheese curds, cheese everything. There’s more than just food of course but when in Rome as they say. We brought our bikes because Milwaukee is a wonderful city to explore by bike; though there are more hills than in Chicago so our fixies made us work a little harder.

After a wild 5K–think whipping rains, gusty winds, and getting smacked right in the face by multiple leaves…In. My. Face.–we stopped by Milwaukee Public Market for lunch and then it snowed! I said I was embracing fall not winter! It was just a dusting but quite unexpected.

Just a quick weekend trip so it’s back to Chicago for us three, hopefully it’s not snowing there yet.
