Bethany's 30th birthday, featuring Catbird

As part of this year's July family birthday celebrations (I have three family members with birthdays in early July), I was able to take a brief trip to Chicago to attend a birthday party for my brother's wife Bethany and spend a little time with my parents. I love Rob and Bethany's friends and was so glad to be part of this event.

Part of the birthday celebration included the first ever performance by Catbird. Hopefully there will be future performances!


Have you been celebrating any birthdays this month?

Saturday is Caturday

Are you ready for your weekend dose of cute?


I know that it looks like Ares is going after the cat food, but he actually just wanted to look out the window in the pantry.

All on his own, and no, it doesn't last long.

What have your cats been up to lately?

Milwaukee's Three Bridges Park

During my recent trip to the Mitchell Park Domes (see Tuesday's post), I visited the eastern edge of Three Bridges Park, which is right behind the conservatory. The park really does have three bridges, but all of these pictures are of the far eastern bridge, again, right behind the Domes.

You can learn more about Three Bridges Park at Renew the Valley and Menomonee Valley From the Ground Up.

summer floral show at the Mitchell Park Domes

Last week I made a brief stop at the Mitchell Park Domes to check out the summer floral show: Practically Perfect in Every Way. The conservatory has three domes, one of which they switch out with different exhibits a few times a year. It's always fun to visit the permanent exhibits and then check out the newest attraction in the show dome.



Where have you been taking pictures lately?
