|My Blue Wave Inspiration|
Before the nice weather returns and my efforts go back to gardening and work we packed in a weekend of activities in the Milwaukee area.
Here are some must do's for you too-
Hot Glass Shop in Racine, WI for a workshop on hot glass. We could create a blown ornament or glass paperweight. We each got to create our own, pick out the colors and potential design, owner Doug showed us how to do it then guided us to make our own. Very cool/hot to see this technique.

While in Racine we took a tour of the SC Johnson Buildings designed by my favorite architect (from Wisconsin) Frank Lloyd Wright. We saw the World Headquarter and Administration Building great room with the dendriform columns and the innovative Research Tower built on the cantilever principles.
It's amazes me when I'm in his buildings how different the space feels. Put this one on your list of things to do, it's even free. No photos were allowed once inside.

We accepted the challenge to be put in handcuffs and disarm a bomb in 60 minutes at Escape MKE in Milwaukee, WI. Happily our group succeeded in escaping the "James Bomb" room with 10 minutes to spare.
Very different kind of challenge, really get's the adrenaline going.
I hear there's two escape room businesses now open in the downtown La Crosse area. Great fun for a whole family or work team.
