Summerfest

Yesterday, my friend and I took the train to Milwaukee for Summerfest. Shortly after we got there, the heavens opened up and we got monsoon like rain for about 30 minutes.

Spellbound a documentary movie I saw last night “follows eight boys and girls of various ages, backgrounds, and social classes as they chase the same dream: winning the 1999 National Spelling Bee.” Very cute.
