Yacht Rock!

The Majestic, only our favorite music venue in Madison, had a Yacht Rock party.  Yacht Rock is soft rock from the late 70's to early 80's that is smooth and mellow music that those who owned a yacht would rock out to while sipping their champagne.  Hall and Oats, Toto, The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan are some well-known Yacht Rockers. 

So, we of course dressed the part, as we always do, and donned our best yachting attire.  We even went out a got new boat shoes (only the biggest craze in Madison right now).  We figured we would use them on Dan's sailboat.  It was a great night, and we all had a ton of fun playing the part.

The W's sweet get-ups.
The Girls--so much white and navy.
The Boys--too much chest hair.

Walk for Occupaws

In May (I'm a little behind, but have lots to update so check back often), Jeanette and I did a dog walk for Occupaws in Middleton.  Occupaws is a guide dog association so the walk was to benefit this great charity.  I know you're thinking, Andrew and I don't have a dog, and yes you are right, we don't have a dog; I borrowed my neighbor's great pyrenees, saint bernard, akbash, komondor mix 20 week old puppy.  His name is Bandit and he is a great puppy.  Well trained, very relaxed and just a fabulous puppy.  

We walked around Middleton on a beautiful Saturday to get stamped by the local businesses.  We then entered into a raffle with the stamps.  We didn't win, but we did win the silent auction for Mallards Tickets (post to come soon).  It was a great day.  Olive, Jeanette's dog and Bandit got along really well.  We were wiped out and Bandit and Olive were also pooped.  Here are some pictures from the day.
