A Weekend In Milwaukee with CB

We started out Friday night with CB taking his first bubble bath ever. He didn’t want to get out. I’m happy he finally realizes the importance of self care/balance and avoiding tasks that need to be completed. 

Then we drove to see Kim and Steven. CB had a blast chasing frisbee and checking out their yard.

He also met Apollo and Starbuck.

Then we drove the rest of the way to Milwaukee. He was a bit unsure of the dog already in our room.

We went to Broken Bat Brewing.

They had a nice range of beers which were all good.

CB got a lot of attention at the brewery. Omg the orange boots! His blue eyes!

He seemed happy.

Checking out Broken Bat.

CB agreed that “beer is like pouring smiles on his brain”

Then we met Kim and Steve for lunch at Cafe Benelux.

Cb was happy to chill in the patio.

He felt so comfortable that he took a nap.

After lunch we went to the market for some yummy ice cream.

CB approved.

When we got back to the hotel they had a welcome sign out for him. (He’s Hampton IRL)

Happy boy at the Journeyman.

It was his first real vacation in 8 years.

He was especially happy that Ze didn’t come with us.

He eventually checked out the dog bed.

And admired the views.

He got comfy on the bed.

After a nap for all of us we caught the sunset.

I think CB was really happy. We were happy to share this memory with him.


Perfect end to a wonderful day.

The next morning we walked around.

CB took influencer photos.

We went to Colectivo Coffee.

I had an amazing sandwich.

CB took photos for the gram.

And we went to Holey Moley doughnuts.

He sniffed a bunch of things.

Then it was time to head home.

We stopped at the Mars Cheese Castle.

While L was inside the castle, Cb and I walked around the lake and attracted the attention of no less than 10 red winged black birds who thought we were there to steal their babies.

We escaped and went back to the lot.

It was the perfect end to a fun vacation with out OG

I just wish we had gotten a photo with Kim and Steven too. 

We stayed at the Journeyman Kimpton in the third ward. All Kimpton hotels are extremely pet friendly. You can just show up with your furry/scaly/feathered BFF and they will have a room waiting for you.  The third ward was great- so many cool stores and restaurants within a very short walk. 


  1. What a fun weekend for CB! The kittens are STILL talking about him and wondering when he'll return.

    Thanks for including us in your visit! We will get a pic next time!!!!
