Lake Geneva...HOLY BEAUTIFUL!
Over the Memorial Day weekend, my family and I were in Crystal Lake, IL for my son Anthonys travel team, The Milwaukee Angels 13U tournament!   They ended up losing their 1st game on Sunday…which knocked them out!  SAD?  Yes!  However, it gave us a chance to spend some quality time together and DISCOVER places we’ve not seen yet.   
 
By PURE ACCIDENT, we ended up in LAKE GENEVA!  OMG!  How BEAUTIFUL is this place!!!  We had a great dinner at Chuck’s Lakeshore Inn,  walked around for a bit and was in AWE of the scenery around us…beach filled, boats EVERYWHERE and that got me thinkin’…next time, we’re RENTING A BOAT!   I can do that right?  Even though I’ve never driven one before?  If not, gonna just take the boat tour J!
 
Bottom line:  we’re DEFINITELY going back to enjoy what Lake Geneva has to offer.  Oh, and THANK YOU SPRING FOR SHOWING UP!  FINALLY! (knock on wood)
 
Have a great weekend!

OMG! REALLY?
On May 16th,  I posted on FB that I’d been to Leon’s for the FIRST time!  People were AMAZED by that…ya’ know, since I’ve been here since December and my family since the end of February.  Well, I’m SAD (BUT ALSO GLAD) that it took this long to find it because:

A) We’d have been there every night (or every other, anyway)
B) See A!  

Lesson learned…we’re gonna do more exploring for the great food Milwaukee and the surrounding areas have to offer.  PLEASE, feel free to share YOUR favorite places with me as well!  My family LOVES to eat J  We’re always down for finding great places to hang out and enjoy some great food and fun!

AS ALWAYS, THANKS SO MUCH for listening to The Mix!

-Mark Summers

P.S.-The PINEAPPLE milkshake was OUTSTANDING!  YUM.  Ok, now I'm going there tonight :)

FAMILY.IS.EVERYTHING.
The last 2 weeks have been AMAZING and FAMILY is the reason!  My wife Sarah is the youngest of 5 sisters and to say she’s close to them is a HUGE understatement!  She does have a sister that’s “HER PERSON” though, and if you watch GREYS ANATOMY, you’ll get that reference!

You see, Sarah just celebrated her 40th birthday on April 28th and it would be the first time in years that she wouldn’t be able to celebrate with her Mom and Sisters in some way or another…OR SO SHE THOUGHT!   Let’s just say I’m TERRIBLE at keeping secrets…but I kept this one and IT WAS A BIGGIE!  My Mother-In-Law and Sister-In-Law (not just any sister, but HER PERSON) were coming to surprise her for her birthday!  They flew into Chicago, drove to meet me here at the radio station and let me just tell you…it was THE MOST AMAZING REACTION EVER when we walked in the house and I had Mom and Leslie with me!  There were tears, neverending hugs and my kids were just as happy as it was the first time they’d seen their Mom-Mom or Auntie since we moved to Milwaukee!   Always remember: FAMILY IS FOREVER…no matter how near or far, they are always there.  You’re just a phone call away...or a plane ride even!  THIS was special and had to be shared with YOU, my OTHER FAMILY!

Thank you for reading this and THANK YOU SO MUCH for listening to The Mix!

Plant Some Animal Resistant Bulbs this Fall
Don't let flower hungry wildlife stop you from planting spring flowering bulbs. Plant a few animal resistant bulbs in your garden this fall for added color and beauty next spring. Start off the season with a few minor bulbs. Winter aconite and snowdrops are some of the first bulbs to appear in spring. Mix grape hyacinths with daffodils to double your flower power and pop in some Siberian squills for a bit of blue in the spring garden. Try little Tommies, botanically known as Crocus tomassinanus. Garden catalogues claim and I have found them to be resistant to squirrels. Daffodils are well known for surviving hungry animals and now there are lots of new varieties to choose from. And don't forget to try some alliums you may know as ornamental onions. There are small and large flowered varieties and those that bloom in spring, summer or fall. A bit more information: Consider Camassia with blue flower spikes that resemble hyacinth, but tolerate partial shade. Snowflakes (Leucojum) Autumn crocus (Clochicum), Fritillaria and of course hyacinths are a few other animal-resistant bulbs. Southern gardeners need to select low chill varieties or use precooled bulbs if their winters are too warm for forcing spring flowering bulbs into bloom.
