Two weeks ago I took a quick trip to see the family in Milwaukee and enjoy what is likely my last chance in a while to get some time out of LA. It was a busy and fun-filled weekend.
My brother, David, recently started a Sales Associate training program at Rockwell Automation, in Milwaukee. As their name implies, Rockwell provides the services, support and hardware needed for their customers to improve the automation of their own facilities. A quick look at their product catalogue gives an idea of just how vast their product combinations can be. Thus, accomplishing a grasp of their products and effectively selling them is no small feat to undertake! It was great fun to catch up with David and hear first-hand about everything he's learning and doing in this exciting program.
A diversion during the weekend was to attend Milwaukee's Bastille Days Festival. Bastille Days, France's equivalent to the 4th of July, is a curious festival for the largely German-settled Milwaukee to have. Even more so since this 1-day event in France is a 3-4 day festival when observed in US cities. Still, any excuse for music, a diverse mix of food, and fun merchandise booths is good enough for me.
The primary reason for the trip was to attend my sister Stacy's bridal shower. Stacy is getting married in December to a wonderful guy, Ian. Check out their wedding website. The shower, hosted by my mother's friends Sue Miller and Ginny Kannenberg, was just lovely. As you can see in the picture above, Stacy received a ton of great items to help set up their new apartment.
