Weekend Guide, September 7-9

This weekend guide is sponsored by Goldfish Swim School in Brookfield.

Your Lake Country Weekend Guide has Arrived!

It’s the weekend already! Gotta love a short week 😉 And bonus, I think the rain left, too (cross your fingers)!

During the month of September, the Lake Country Family Fun team is going to be re-introducing ourselves and giving you the opportunity to ask us questions. You can start to learn more about us by reading our Life Hacks, a Few Facts, and Favorite Tracks post. Then follow along on Instagram on Tuesdays to learn about us individually. I (Erin) took over the Lake Country Family Fun Instagram feed last Tuesday, and Madi is up this upcoming Tuesday. Be sure to follow along!

We thought it was about time for a re-introduction. 😉 This month, each @lakecountryfamilyfun mama is going to do a #takeovertuesday so you can get to know more about the ladies behind LCFF. First up is LCFF owner, Erin! 💦 Good morning, Lake Country Family Fun readers! This is Erin, the woman behind the scenes, compiling all the family fun behind LCFF here to take over the LCFF IG stories for the day. 😀 My hubby and I are both business owners in the heart of Lake Country and couldn't be more passionate about the area and all that it offers. Throughout the summer, you'll find us on the lake nearly every Sunday #sandbarsunday Our favorite is Lac La Belle, but we were on Okauchee Lake quite a bit this summer, too. 💦 Three things you may not know about me: 1️⃣ I've always lived in WI and can't imagine ever living anywhere else, (although, my hubby and I enjoy traveling and take an international vacation every winter.) 2️⃣ I am a "born-again" foodie, if that's a thing 😉 I was the pickiest eater growing up until meeting my future hubby, going to college, and ultimately becoming a mom. Because of this, I'm super passionate about my kids not being picky eaters and promote healthy eating patterns (real food/veggies) on a daily basis. 🥦🍓🥑 3️⃣ I was on a cheer/dance team from 5th grade through senior year in high school. The summer before my senior year of high school, I tried out for an All-American team and made it. I went on to perform in the pregame and halftime show of the Orange Bowl in Miami in 2002. 💦 Be sure to “tune-in” next week when team member, Madi takes over!
