Quick Weekend.

This weekend we made our way to Green Bay, WI for a surprise party for my Aunt Laurie, in town from Virginia. We all had a great time and I am so glad that we were all able to be together for the weekend. And that we all kept it a surprise!
The party was at Lambeau Field.

This was our view.


Surprise!

Some of her '50' gear. I wish I had some pictures of M, being a ham and helping open gifts. One of my favorite things to hear come out of her mouth was; "Another card, another nickel." I have no idea where she heard that.

Our family and the guest of honor.

Everybody who was there.

Another fun bonus of the weekend was the Tundra waterpark. The hotel we were staying at had just replaced their water pump so their pool was freezing on Saturday so they gave us passes to go a few hotels over to the water park. After a long car ride Saturday morning, the kids enjoyed hours of fun here before we got ready for the party. The pool was back in regular order by Sunday morning so they were back in the hotel pool then.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNT LAURIE! We're so glad we got to be a part of your party and give you such a fun surprise!!! We love you!

What fun. And so funny that you mentioned M. being a ham. I know that Laurie isn't related to M. but would you believe that the first thought I had upon seeing the first picture of her in this post was "Wow, she and M. look so much alike"! Glad you had such fun together with your family. :)
