Happy 4th of July!
This has been a great little break for James and I. Starting yesterday at noon, we were on a mini-vacation.
We started out with the Brewers game.
They played the Marlins, who have two former White Sox coaches (and players) Ozzie Guillen and Joey Cora.
It was pretty cool to see them. However, it was not “cool” at the game. It was 97 degrees (so said my phone), so we were pretty hot the entire time, even in the shade. But we got some ice cream to cool off, so that was pleasant.
The game was so fun. We saw two Brewers homeruns, some great base running, and the Brewers won (in extras though, they liked to keep it interesting).
After the game, we came home to freshen up, then we met our friends Kim and Sean for dinner at Patische in Bay View.
Bay View is an awesome little neighborhood south of the city that I always enjoy exploring. And the food was great! Typically, the restaurant has entrees, but Tuesday was Tapas Tuesday.
I love tapas and everything we shared (fried risotto, grilled asparagus, grilled stuff sweet peppers, potatoes, oysters, mussels, empanadas, mushroom confit, and dessert), was so amazing! I definitely recommend this place!
This morning started with one of my favorite quick and easy breakfasts, thanks to the groceries we finally got.
The rest of today, James and I decided to spend the day enjoying each other’s company and the holiday. We watched some Breaking Bad (of course), sat on the balcony to enjoy the sun, and tried to play catch outside, but some girls were taking up the yard with an inflatable pool (seriously), so we just took a little stroll.
Then James grilled!
We had brats, corn, watermelon, and some ice cream. I forgot a picture of the brats because I was too excited to eat
It was definitely a great break — we got to see a baseball game, eat great food both here and out, and we got to relax with each other and Milo. I hope you all enjoyed your 4th as well!!
Two more days til the weekend
