Going behind the scenes at the Milwaukee County Zoo

We had an unbelievable weekend in the Olson house. It was seriously jam-packed and super exhausting, but really an amazing one. Friday night, we joined my mom for a fish fry at Hubbard Park Lodge. This was the perfect spot to take Callum. We sat right in front of the accordion player and the bubble machine. So, we got to enjoy an actual hot meal, and Callum was in bubble heaven. Plus, the park around the Lodge is just gorgeous, and provided some amazing photo ops.

Saturday was one of the coolest days ever! I won a behind-the-scenes tour of the Milwaukee County Zoo in an office raffle a few months ago, and we took the actual tour on Saturday. We had our own personal tour guide (and golf cart) and were able to see a whole new side of the zoo, including feeding the giraffes and the 100-year-old giant tortoise, and a look inside the building where they store and prepare all the food for the animals. Kids weren't allowed on the tour, so Callum stayed home with Oma.

Sunday, we drove up to Madison to watch a Radicals game. The Radicals are Madison's professional ultimate frisbee team. The game started right as nap time usually does. So, that was a bit of struggle. But, Callum was a champ for the most part and even took a short nap on our laps during the game. We finished Sunday off with a bit of sprinkler time and leftovers for dinner. It was the perfect low-key end to a busy weekend.
