Christmas Trip: Wisconsin (Pt 2)

After a couple of fun days in Michigan, we all drove to Wisconsin (with a great stop in Chicago at Jen and Jason’s place, first, to celebrate Lauren’s birthday) for the rest of our trip.  We had a wonderful time; the pictures speak volumes.  We all stayed at my parents’ house, so we had tons of time together – an awesome blessing.  One highlight was definitely going to the Packers game with the ladies in the family – a gift given to us by our thoughtful men!  Another specific highlight was getting together with the Maurer family – always a special time for us!  We had a blast!

On Sunday, Lauren’s birthday, we headed to Green Bay to see the Packers beat the Lions!  It was an awesome experience!  Merry Christmas to the ladies from our sweet husbands. =)

Here are some more pictures from our time in Kenosha:

Some people played a big game of football outside.  Ethan was SO excited about that and wore his Packers gear and his new receiver gloves.

We also spent some time with Maurer family – a MUST any time we are in Wisconsin.  We went to the Kenosha museum and did crafts there.  Then we headed to Monkey Joes for some fun.  We ended the night with Chipotle!  It was lots of fun and is neat to see how quickly the kids jump into playing together.  The guy you see in some of the pictures that isn’t Adam but looks like him…that’s his younger brother.  It’s cool to see how well they get along…it’s something I am hopeful for our boys. =)

The adults had gotten together the night after the Packers game, but I guess we forgot to snap a picture.  It was lots of fun, too, and gave us a chance to catch up!

It’s always a blast to spend time with our family and friends!  Loved it.
