Postcards from Milwaukee

Lani came to visit last Memorial Day weekend and I played tour guide and took her on a whirlwind roundabout of Milwaukee and it's landmarks. It's surprising how many places we were able to get to and still managed to make it to the Wicked Divas concert! Here are some of the photos of the city:
