Appleton Car Show

September 27, 2013
Tyler LOVED seeing the old cars and Hot Rods parked along College Avenue.  Here are some of his favorites.

We all expected Tyler to be excited...but no one expected Brooklyn to demonstrate her excellent auto show modeling skills!

Fox Cities Half Marathon and Daddy's Birthday

September 22, 2013
The sun is coming up on a chilly September morning.  It's a perfect day for a race!!

Daddy is off and we can't wait to cheer him on!

Here he comes!  Go Daddy Go!!

What a great race!  And a respectable time as well...1 hour and 42 minutes...within seconds of his best time ever!

After the race, it was time for a PARTY!!

Brooklyn made Daddy a very special Green and Yellow Football cake!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

2013 Summer Camping

It was a very successful Summer Camping Season!  It started out a little rough when we found our pop-up was no longer useable, but we didn't let that stop us!  We took the new camper out 5X in a short camping season!

Our inaugural trip was to Apple Creek Campground in DePere, WI!

Our first pudgie pie making experience was delicious!

Trip #2 was to Heaven's Up North Campground in Lakewood, WI.

Trip #3 was to Indian Trails Campground in Pardeeville, WI.

We went pudgie pie crazy with this trip!  I think we made every meal on the campfire!!

Many  different ways to relax while camping!

Indian Trails had a BMX course (check out Tyler's "air") and a miniature golf course where both Tyler and Brooklyn each got a Hole in One!!

Trip #4 was to Peninsula State Park in Door County (Fish Creek, WI).

After watching big brother, Brooklyn made it all the way across the monkey bars for the very first time!!

We always love climbing on rocks!

Brooklyn's favorite part of the trip was at the Nature Center when she got to play in a box full of animal Poop!!

We went on a long, steep, and difficult hike....but it was no match for Tyler and Brooklyn!

And Trip #5, our last trip of the season, was to Devil's Lake State Park in Baraboo, WI.

This time Tyler and Brooklyn cooked dinner over the campfire!

And wouldn't you know it?  We found the BEST ROCK CLIMBING TRAIL EVER!!!

Tyler found a place to kick back and relax!

....and of course Brooklyn would not be out done!

What is Mommy staring at?

It's the Texas A&M Aggies trying to beat #1 ranked Alabama!!!  WHOOP!!!

More hiking...this trail is called Balanced Rock.

...and here is the "Balanced Rock".  Be careful Tyler...don't lean back!!!

We got to see some real rock climbers too!

Daddy got a new chair for his birthday...but he didn't get to sit in it as much as he would have liked!!

It was a great inaugural camping season in Wisconsin!
