Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We’re on the road again and its time to get out with friends and explore the beautiful season ahead of us.  My flowering cactus are perking up and we should see lots of yellow color soon as it is a welcoming summer here in Minnesota.

On May 30-31 we are heading out for one of our favorite places to visit, namely Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. The Fireside Dinner Theatre, which is rated one of the country’s top dinner theaters celebrating 60 years of Broadway productions in their theater in the round and memorable dining experience.

We will be seeing “Nunsense” on opening night and we will meet the cast.

We are returning directly after the show.
