The big news of last weekend isn't mine.
After months of planning (not mine) and secrecy, I delivered Kate to the airport in Green Bay on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday morning she landed in Paris! SURPRISE!! She was invited, along with another couple, by her friend Blair's husband to a surprise 30th birthday celebration for Blair… in Paris (swoon). There's at least one other surprise for Blair before they return home to Edinburgh, where Katie will also spend about a week before she returns home (here). It's been a lot of fun to see it all unfold. It was so secretive, though, that Katie didn't even tell the credit union that she was going!! (I called this morning and hopefully she'll be able to use her debit card now.)

I had a very quiet and relaxing weekend, myself.

The previous weekend was a bit more "exciting" for us all. We all had or took the day off on Friday and left bright and early for a 3-day weekend "up north."
Originally, my sisters and at least one cousin were going to join us, but they fell off one by one and so it ended up being just us at the old cabin, with my uncle at his a couple doors down.
The weather was kind of crappy until about mid-morning on Saturday and then it was just lovely — brisk and fall-like — not as warm and delightful as last year, but certainly pretty enough!
There were plenty of walks.
We goofed around.
Goofed around some more.
It was gorgeous… super low-key, fun, relaxing.
We played games and ate great food, including a fish fry on Saturday night… there's nothing like pan-fried walleye!
A darn good time was had by all!!
