A Visit to Wisconsin

Last weekend Brian and I made a weekend trip east to visit his Aunt Sharon and Uncle Wayne. Brian's Grandma Baylor and her husband Steve were also there for the weekend and we saw Aunt Sue and Uncle Phil for brunch on Sunday before we headed home. We had such a nice visit! I haven't spent much time with Aunt Sharon and Uncle Wayne and we hadn't seen them since last summer, so visiting was a treat. Not only did we enjoy some excellent meals and conversations, but saw many of the Madison sites. The weather was a little wet, but we did manage to find some breaks in the clouds to get outside.
Aunt Sharon has the more incredible tulips in her front yard. I couldn't resist snapping some shots of them.
Some of the high points of the weekend included a tour of the University of Wisconsin and the beautiful State Capitol Building where we learned the badger is the Wisconsin state animal (who knew!). Brian acting like a goofball in the capitol building. Grandma and Steve outside of the capitol.

Aunt Sharon and Uncle Wayne. I'm wishing that the lighting was better in this photo...We also visited an incredible flowering arboretum and took a nice relaxing walk.
Thanks Aunt Sharon and Uncle Wayne for a great weekend!
