On Saturday we went up to Devil's Lake Wisconsin with my brother David and his family.  They usually go up there every year and love it.  On our route to Devil's Lake we traveled across a river where you cross by ferry.  The kids loved riding the ferry and frankly so did Jeffrey and I!  When we got there we all had a picnic lunch and the kids played in the leaves and then on the beach.  The whole area was beautiful. I felt I was walking through one of God's paintings the entire time.  

Mason was wearing pants which very quickly got soaking wet. Cousin Elsie is in the back.

I love this picture.  This is what we did all day.  Enjoy the beautiful scenery and watch our kids and their cousins play at the beach.  The little girl in the picture is my niece Clarine.

For those of you who don't know, which will probably almost everyone, Sheboygan is a city in Wisconsin right on Lake Michigan.  And last week Jeffrey and I had our first weekend away from our children in Sheboygan.  The only time I  have been away from Knightley overnight was when I was in the hospital with Mason.  What encouraged us to leave the kids (with Jeff's wonderful sister Ashley) was none other than BRIAN REGAN!  One of the best comedians ever!

We stayed at a family resort called Blue Harbor and this was the view from our room.  Who says Wisconsin isn't cool?!  The resort also has a large indoor water park, with 4 decent sized water slides, large pools, and hot tubs!

Then the main event, Brian Regan!

This is us in our seats, which were incredible.  The very very front and center!  I kind of talked my way into getting these awesome seats.  You could see every facial expression, so funny!

Sadly, we weren't allowed to take pictures of Brian Regan but this is the view from our seats.  We were literally 5 feet away from him.  Joe Bolster performed first for about 30 mins and he was so funny too (he is now also a favorite)!  Then Brain performed for about an hour.  By the end of the show our faces hurt from laughing so hard! The whole event definitely goes down in our personal history books!

Our whole weekend was so fun.  We played in the water park, walked around all the little shops in Sheboygan, went out to eat for every meal, walked on the beach, and all with no kids!  We were gone from Thursday afternoon till Saturday afternoon and it was such a nice small vacation.  Hopefully we won't wait three more years to have another adult only weekend!
