Spencer, Maxi, Ashlyn and Skylee come to Wisconsin! May 2012

Spencer and family came and spent from Tuesday evening until Sunday morning with us.  It was wonderful to have them here.

Skylee brought Grandpa a new hat!

  We took the usual family excursion to Green Bay and toured the Packer stadium.  We also visited the Packer Hall of Fame.

Richard Kellnar, a friend let us borrow  his paddle boat and a canoe so we could paddled around three of the lakes at the "Chain of Lakes"  It was a lot of fun and so beautiful.  The lily pads were just coming out in bloom.
We put into the lake at Richard's mothers home and when we got there we found a baby raccoon that had apparently been abandoned by it's mother.  It was so tiny and cute.

Ready for some FUN!

You have to get a trip to Rudolph to the cheese cheese curds and ice cream ever! On our way home we stopped at the "Grotto" which is a garden of beautiful flowers, plants, rocks and Catholic statues. 

26th of May, Relva's birthday.  Picnic at the park, but got rained out before we ate lunch...but on our hike on The Green Trail  we were walking by the creek when Ashlyn spotted a huge turtle...turned out to be about 20" snapping turtle that like our slim jim jerky!   We raced t the car when the rain came. Didn't want to go home so went shopping for Wisconsin shirts, had lunch at Culvers and then  finished celebrating at the King Kone ice cream shop.  We went home played games, then  went to Applebees for dinner and back to King Kone  for more ice cream! What a birthday celebration never to be forgotten!
