Brian and Linds in Cedarburg- Oct 2006

Dressed to match the leaves new line

Cedarcreek Winery- Cedarburg, WI

Brian and I celebrated our 4th year anniversary in a winery town called Cedarburg. Quaint and thus far, unexplored by either of us, this town held open a generous hand of delights and surprises. From the beauty of it's landscape to roasted red pepper and tomato soup.
There is nothing quite so refreshing to me as a day of undiscovered roads, fresh air, inspiration, delicious soups, hearty breads, crisp wine, and history still standing. A few pics of life enjoyed over the last few days.

Jackson dressed himself... well... sortof

He decidedly could not live another moment without wearing the hobbit vest and ofcourse will wear his hat at least once a day... as a staple. (But it's camo -- so it "should?" go with anything??? )
Can't critique... he's just unique.

To the great land of Cabela's

Well, it's official. We lost our minds and decided to go to the weekend grand opening of the new Cabela store. Not at all regretful since this place is a museum, aquarium, cafe, campsite, and taxadermist heaven.
The guys had a blast. Brian was impressively restrained - (although I know he'll want to be let loose when Grandpa Knapp comes to town!)
