Last weekend Patrick and the guys in our family spent their traditional weekend at the cottage watching lots of basketball and doing other guy things (ice golf, drinking beer, shooting pellet guns, eating pizza, did I mention drinking beer?) I have been told there are photos from this year's festivities, but I have yet to see any. Maybe some one will read this and send me some?!?
Regardless, while they were having their fun, James and I went to Milwaukee and enjoyed a long weekend with Mom, Lisa, Thomas and Jojo.
We got a quick visit and tour with Buppa - here are Thomas and Jojo with the mini racing Chorizo! They were in for a pre-season cleaning!
The big boys posing with Bucky - I was super pumped to get a picture of James with him as well, but he wasn't interested this time!
We will be back Bucky - you can count on it!
I do secretly love how happy Thomas and Jojo are sitting with Bucky
- they certainly love him despite their upbringing!
Friday night we went to our favorite restaurant - The Highland House.
James still will eat just about anything - but is especially partial to rice and beans and chicken fingers!
The big boys at the other end of the table - we joked that we might need to get take-out next year - unless there are any brave souls in the greater Milwaukee area that want to join us - we will be out numbered quite a bit!
After dinner the boys "played" some video games.
Doesn't it actually look like they know what they are doing?
Glad they don't understand the machines need quarters yet!
This is one of my favorites!
Saturday we went to attempt a 3 boy photo.
I secretly snagged a "behind the scenes" shot - just to give you a peek at our session.
Our normally happy boy was the WORST of the 3!
He was not interested in sitting still (not super shocking) but also cried through most of it. It didn't help that the room was a little chilly and there was a baby grand piano just outside the shot that was calling to all 3 boys.
I believe IF we get a printed photo - it will be one where James is photoshopped in a BIG way!
Another favorite from the weekend!
Sunday we went to the Mitchell Domes --- for those of you that haven't been lately (or ever) it was awesome! They had a huge train display in one of the domes and between that and the warm sunshine / temps - it was like being outside.
The trains were constantly going and there were walking paths all around
- perfect for little boys to run!
Thomas and Jojo watching the trains - doesn't it look like they might be peeing?!?
Lisa and her boys - the trains were VERY distracting!
All 3 little guys watching the trains.
This was in the Jungle dome - James was doing his best to reach the Koi pond
- imagine his little face squished between the bridge posts!
And one more stop back to the trains.
Tried to get a photo of Grammy and the boys
- our mistake was asking them to face away from the trains!
And finally - our belly shot!
I am guessing many of you already saw this on Face book.
I think it was the most "liked" photo I have ever been a part of!
