But this weekend I had a fabulous time visiting friends and family and even doing a lovely photoshoot.
On Friday night I went out to eat with my dear, long time friend Karen. We talked and talked and ate and talked. And we laughed a lot. Which we always do. It was a great night out. We ate at a place called Doolittles. Have you heard of this place? I wonder if it is a chain. Everything was very good!
Then Saturday I took Katie to the mall to spend some of her hard earned dog sitting money!
It really wasn't hard. Katie loved visiting with Nala and Niko four times a day. She didn't have to be she would stay over there for an hour each visit. They live next door and it was a perfect one week job for her. (The only hard part was waking up at 7:00 :o)
Saturday evening I had a photoshoot with Emma's dear friend Karishma and her husband from Chicago. They decided they would prefer a quiet spot with lots of green so earlier in the day Katie and I looked around the area for nice places. We went to Epic first and actually didn't have to go any where else. They loved it there! It was a quiet, beautiful, hot night.
I was so happy they felt comfortable and Karishma had many wonderful ideas for posing. They were to cute together!
It was really a delightful evening...they loved being out in this beautiful location and I think it shows in their happy pictures.
Then....to top it off, Cindy and Pat came to town so we could have lunch with our darling nephew and 'niece', Wesley and Stephanie, who just moved to town! (Sister Sue's son)
Wesley is the clarinet professor at the University of Wisconsin. We are so proud of them. Stephanie was able to keep her amazing job and will work from home. They live just one town over from us and we are so excited they are in the area now!
We hung out at the Memorial Union and Cindy made Wes and Stephanie sit in the big orange chair....
because that is what Cindy does!!!
What a great weekend! So thrilled to be with family and take pretty pictures and eat yummy food with a wonderful friend.
And boy was it hot.
