Early Birthday in Oconomowoc.

 - by Gretel

We just got back from a lovely weekend in Oconomowoc, where we celebrated Ilyana’s 4th birthday a week early with Grandma and Grandpa.  It was great to take advantage of a little extra holiday time to get away from home, and to have a nice long weekend.  Jeffrey and I even got a date!

Below are some pictures from the event, but as always, check out the Flickr Photostream here in order to see more.
