Jake's birthday is July 3, which means that many years we end up doing something over the 4th of July holiday with family and friends to celebrate both his birthday and Independence Day. This year is the big 3-0 so we're actually doing multiple birthday events throughout week, which included an Edelweiss Cruise along the Milwaukee River on July 4th. The big downtown fireworks show is on July 3 so we avoided those crowds and still had plenty of time to get to a fireworks show in the suburbs that night.
A boat tour is such a fun way to enjoy your city, even if it's a place that you've lived for years. If you live in Milwaukee or are ever visiting the area, put it on your list of things to do.
