Father's Day, Day Out with Thomas, and Donald Driver Way!

Happy Father's Day!!

Thomas the Tank Engine came to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay!

We got to meet Topham Sir Hat....err...Sir Topham Hat!

A conductor punched our tickets while Thomas was pulling our train!

 ...and Tyler got an apple almost as big as his head!

The highlight for Poppy was what he could see from the top of the railroad tower.  Can you see what he sees?  Way off in the distance.....

It's Lambeau Field!!

After we left Thomas, we headed over to the Title Town Brewing Company where Donald Driver was scheduled to make an appearance for the unveiling of a statue painted in his likeness and of the renaming of Pearl Street to Donald Driver Way!!

Can you see who Tyler is looking at?

It's the official Fence Painter Guy!!  He actually painted the statue that will be unveiled!

Another Super Fan

Brooklyn and Tyler were ready excited!!


...Zero!!  It's Donald Driver Way!!....

...and the freshly painted statue wearing #80!!

There's the real Donald Driver speaking!

And of course when we're in Green Bay, we have to stop by and check on Poppy's brick!!

Meeting Cousin Matthew in Kenosha, WI

Uncle Mike and Aunt Emily were visiting in Chicago ...  we were able to meet up with them in Kenosha and meet Cousin Matthew for the first time!!

Does anyone know why we decided to meet in Kenosha?  Because there a Jelly Belly Factory of course!!!  And they give free tours!!

We all know how much Daddy (Uncle Jeff) loves his Baby wipes.... you can imagine his excitement to find out they make a Baby Wipes flavored jelly bean!!

Judging by his reaction, it looks like Baby Wipes are better suited for wiping than eating!!
