We went to Wisconsin this past weekend for a family reunion!
Anyway... We were there Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Four fun filled day! I haven't been out to see my relatives in Wisconsin for about 10 years - so it was so nice to see everyone again.
I know that when most people think of Wisconsin - cheese and cows and other dairy related things come to mind. This is probably not far from the truth! We happened to be in Milwaukee just in time to go to the Wisconsin State Fair! And what was at the fair you ask? Lots of cows!! and cheese and other animals...
It was a gorgeous day - if only a little too hot for my taste - but as you can see here the sky was a gorgeous shade of blue:
We met up with my Dad's younger brother and his family for a nice walk around. We had Hot Wisconsin Cheese balls (no - I'm not kidding!), Bratwurst, and the best cream puffs ever. It was fun to catch up with my youngest cousins - who I hadn't seen in forever!
Another stop on our trip was to the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My dad's alma mater! This campus is just gorgeous!! If you are a high school senior - or have kids that are - I highly recommend checking it out. It looks like a resort! It's on a lake and the views are just breathtaking... They also have the coolest chairs at the student union.
The Domes are three HUGE greenhouses full of all kinds of gorgeous plants and flowers. If you've read my blog - you know I'm a sucker for flower pics...
I was in heaven!
But the highlight of the trip was definitely the reunion. We all had to wear name tags - since there were so many of us. I met 3rd and 4th cousins I didn't even know I had! It was a great time. Here's a pic of all of us...
and here's one of my favs... a self portrait of me and my cousin.
Those who know me - know that I often like to greet people in this manner - I guess it runs in the family!!!!
PS - for those 70's show lovers out there who understood my title.... Javaman kept asking all of my relatives... so where's Point Place anyway?
