I enjoy walking and riding bikes with my family, enjoying the parks and trails when the weather is nice. When I have some extra time, I enjoy sewing projects like quilts and holiday decorations or costumes for my kids.

Favorite Milwaukee Pastime

My favorite thing to do in Milwaukee is check out the weekend events and festivals with family and friends. There is always something going on in the Milwaukee area, and it is a great opportunity to get involved in my community. Throughout the summer, I’m usually spending Saturday mornings at one of the many farmer’s markets.
