We Made It

We settled into our hotel in Brookfield WI today and then promptly went out to find our usual Sunday night ice cream supper. We didn't have to look very far, this place was just down on the corner. It didn't look like a chain and it was very busy, two good signs. Kopps is known for their frozen custard. I'm sorry I can not tell the difference between ice cream and frozen custard, can you? If someone would like to explain the difference go right ahead, I guess I could google it, but I'm to tired. Custard might be creamier, maybe?

They also had big-as-your-head hamburgers and gigantic chicken sandwiches. I was going to take a picture of the inside for you but really it just wasn't that attractive. It had a sort of quirky interior, very different, like one of those places you've gone to since you were a kid, that's really dated but you don't really notice and heaven forbid anyone would change it. Sometimes these places sort of lose something if they get remodeled. I understand not messing with a good thing and judging by the crowd this is a town favorite.

Judging by this face, I think it's a Taryn favorite too.

Tomorrow the reason for our trip commences, and based on my 'Certifiable' post from last week, you all are going to think I'm a total gluten for punishment. I'll fill you in tomorrow. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, we had to spend the night in our truck last night. That's right, after a 10 hr. trip, every Hotel in a huge radius around our destination was booked, every one. Some big convention that's held in Milwaukee every year I guess, who knew? Well we didn't. Making memories, that's what we're callin' it. It was actually kind of funny, we got a good laugh out of it. The kids didn't mind at all, they slept like babies, and we actually slept pretty good too, considering. We did have to buy some Aleve today though. I am happy to be in a bed tonight. On a serious note, I couldn't help but think of the families that have had to do that for real, not because of travel glitches, but because they've lost their homes. I can't imagine what they go through. We have it so good, we forget, we need to be more helpful, more thankful. Lesson no. 1 on my month long excursion...... somehow I'm thinking there will be many more.

  1. You're here? I mean, you're there? So close? How long will you be in the area? I'm smiling big that you got to go to Kopp's. That's a definite MUST (though I must say we most often go to the other one---have been since I was a kid). :)
