Last week was Dr. Hottie's first vacation week of 2nd year, and it's safe to say we squeezed every ounce of fun out of the week. We started with a home brew of a belgian IPA that should be ready in a matter of weeks. On Tuesday, we flew back to Wisconsin to be in my brother-in-law's wedding. It was epic, and words don't do it justice so enjoy the pictures and captions! We partied hard knowing Dr.H's upcoming rotation is going to be a doozy. It's 10pm, and he has yet to escape the burn floor. I have a feeling I'll be enjoying fall in the mountains alone...
First order of business was getting in our favorite eats. This place has the BEST scones ever.
We enjoyed beers at the terrace for lunch with the bride & groom.
Dr. H got his Wisconsin inspired brat burger. Layers from bottom to top- brat, burger, cheese.
We biked to our hearts content. Madison has an extensive bike path system, and it's so easy to cruise from one side of town to the other.
Biking by the capitol building.
We did urban camping. A hotel for a week clashes with residency budget & we love to sleep outside! This campground was a 30min bike ride from downtown. It was a drastic change from the typical backpacking experience of hiking all day & crashing at 8pm- we biked to camp anywhere from 9pm to 1am.
My all time favorite thing about Madison is a landscape like this is only a 30min bike ride away.
Biking to the wedding!
1 hour later, I'm all cleaned up!
The wedding was at the Majestic theatre in Madison- a beautiful and historic venue. The groom is in the middle, and his 2 swim buddies from high school along for the ride.
The bride & groom start their pictures.
The bride in her stunning dress. The best moment of the day was when a cute little girl walked by & said, "Mommy look at the girl's beautiful white dress"!
The bridesmaids attending, & the bride trying to track down the MIA member of the bridal party.
Dr. Hottie (living up to his blog name) & I looking unusually nice.
Pictures at the terrace.
Dancing 'til we drop. In all honesty, I don't remember this picture happening...
My last day in town I went to my lovely sister-in-law's baby shower. She is seriously a bad ass pregnant woman.
