Saturday, June 30th, 2012 Today was the Looney Hooley at Teresa Berg’s.  We didn’t get there at the beginning so we didn’t play in the horse shoe tournament this year.  The boys sent straight to the kiddie pool to play.  It was great seeing all the Looney side of the family.  A group of us played Mexican Dominoes.  It was quite the game as no one seemed to be sure of the rules and we seemed to change them frequently throughout the game J  When the sun started going down someone got the fire going in the fire pit.  The smores supplies appeared and we had a yummy, sticky mess!!  It was a full moon so we decided it was finally dark enough for the fireworks at 10pm.  They were AMAZING and we taught the kids to scream, “Honk Honk” when they really liked them!!
I didn't have my camera out, but Alan took some pictures on a hand me down camera he got from Aunt Kathy.

Uncle Neil came home for lunch and we had left over pizza.  It’s even better the 2nd day J  After lunch we headed downtown to check out the new Children’s Museum.  It was AWESOME!!  The first area we played in was the PACKER area of course!!  They had a tailgate area set up, a kicking station, and a locker room where kids could wear child sized uniforms of their favorite Packer players!!  Eddie was in heaven and convinced he could get a real helmet here.  The other favorite play areas of the museum were the digestion station where you climbed up the tongue and traveled through the digestion system to a slide into the toilet!!  They also enjoyed dressing in real firemen clothes and …

Saucer Summer Tour Part 16

Sunday,  June 24th,  2012 Today we went to Aunt Denise and Uncle Dennis’s house.  We just relaxed catching up with Marisa before she headed to the lake with her friends.  I can’t believe she will be starting her Senior year of high school in the fall!!  The boys were excited to watch their movies in the theatre while the grown ups talked J Tim, April, Ian and Simon came over for dinner.  We had an awesome spiral cut ham and all kinds of summer sides!!  The boys were super excited to try the new Capri Suns V.  They have a complete serving of vegetables in every pouch!!
Monday, June 25th, 2012 Today was a driving day.  We are headed to Green Bay and drove  455 miles.  We drove through Chicago and Milwaukee along the way.  It was 4:30pm when we pulled into the driveway at Aunt Kathy and Uncle Neil’s.  We visited a short time and headed straight for Bay Beach!!  We were in luck as it was kids’ day and the kids could ride unlimited FREE!!  Tickets at Bay Beach are only 25cents and each ride is…
