At the Cabin



We rented a cabin for an extended weekend in Osseo. This is definately something we will do again!!!! There was so much to do at the site! There is a skate park, basketball and volleyball court, playground, pool area, mini golf, and so much more!

Our Green Bay Vacation

We went on many mini vacations over the summer: mainly between Appleton, Green Bay, and Milwaukee.



The Tundra Lodge, Green Bay, WI




Bay View Beach, Green Bay, WI

Jesse and I took the boys to the Packer Stadium. They loved it! They were not able to watch the Packer's practice, because they were closed to the public, but they did get to play games, check out the Packer pro shop, and run around the stadium! Next time, we plan on doing the tour, the
boys did not seem very interested in that part!


8-5-11: Wilderness Walk



The Mertig and Parker family decided to venture to Hayward to enjoy Wilderness Walk together. We had so much fun!



Ashton, Jackson, and Thomas enjoying Wilderness Walk!



Cute little Annie!



Jackson petting a baby fawn!



Ashton taking a break!



A turtle snacking on veggies!


I took so many pictures I had to create a slide show so you could enjoy them all!


Library Fun Day





Our local library had an end of the year carnival, they had a dunk tank (which was a huge hit), face painting, craft table, live music by local musicians, food, and so much more! We had to leave after someone knocked Ashton into the dunk tank and he cut his head. He was fine in minutes!!

Independance Day, 2011

We celebrate our 4th with family in Mellen, WI. Every year the children and I watch Jesse and his brothers, neice, and nephew in the parade. This year was little different! Jesse and I watched our boys in the parade instead of the usual. It was quite lonely on the side of the road without the boys! But, the boys had fun riding on the fire trucks and throwing candy!


Ashton, Zory, Jackson, and TJ, July 4, 2011

Ashton and Jack in the fire truck, you can barely make out Jack's little face, but look closely it's there!

Thomas on top of the fire truck with Arianna and Zory!


Usually, we watch the fireworks in Mellen, but Jesse had to work early in the morning, so we watched the fireworks in Ashland, at Our Lady of the Lake. Best view in the area! Sadly, TJ did not like the sound of the fire works and hid with his face down, wanting to go home. Maybe next year he will enjoy them!


I took a great deal of pictures, so enjoy the slide show!



Northwest Jr Golf Tour



Ashton was so excited to participate in the Northwest Jr Golf Tour (NWJGT). We learned about it a little late in the season so Ashton was only able to do 2 of their tournaments, but he was happy to do any at all. Next year we will join right away in the season. Ashton did not have very good scores, but I think his lack of frequent golfing practice played a huge role in that. Next year, I plan on taking the kids golfing often!

Carnival Fun: July 1, 2011



Ashton, Jackson, Thomas, Zory, Jesse and I had such fun at the carnival! We love this annual tradition!
