After the hubbies got home from work, my friend Jen and I hit the lake. Besides cross country skiing we love to paddle board. We had the lake to ourselves and enjoyed the total calmness and gorgeous sun. It's been a challenging week trying to juggle it all and this is exactly what I needed. Love the lake and having some girl time with good friends.

Last night we joined friends in Fontana, Wisconsin (about 45 minutes from our home town). I could just blog about Fontana because it is so gorgeous and so many fun things to do there, but I will focus on our fun day. Our first stop was Laurie Berkner's Concert at The Ferro Pavilion on the historic grounds of George Williams College of Aurora University. The pavilion is wonderful and having the concert on the lake is even better! Laurie was so much fun. If you aren't familiar with Laurie Berkner she is a children's music singer and guitarist. She is often on the Noggin channel performing on "Jack's Big Music Show". My kids loved every minute, singing and dancing. After the concert we had dinner there and a then horrible storm arrived. Luckily, it wasn't dangerous just a lot of rain. We then spent the evening at a friend's lake house in Fontana. A fun Sunday it was.

Yesterday our vacation came to an end (sniff sniff) and we were on the road back to Illinois. We were driving for about 3 hours and my daughter Lucy had to go to the bathroom. We quickly took the next exit and the only restroom available in sight was a café. Love how this sort of random thing happens (see picture). We drove straight through and made great time. We already miss Colorado and are talking about what we plan to do there next summer. I have to admit, it is good to be home.
