Floating - in our pool, down a river, around a pontoon boat, at the beach - I'll float just about anywhere! I also like to rollerblade and read.

See the total solar eclipse in 2024. My sister and I took the kids south to the path of totality in 2017 and it is easily the coolest thing I have ever seen.

With family, either at home or supporting our kids with their various hobbies. We also spend a lot of time on the beaches of Door County with family and friends when we do have a free weekend.
