Wisconsin - May of 2013

In May of 2013 (May 26 - Jun 3), Kim and I took a short vacation. We drove to Wisconsin in order to attend a high school graduation and visit with our family. We drove Kim's car (it gets way better mileage than the XC90) and stopped at my Mom's place first.

We visited with my mother for a few days (May 26 - 29). While we were there, we relaxed around the campfire, and had a short visit with my Sister. We dropped off a graduation gift for Leo (my Sister's youngest boy), before we drove to De Pere.

In De Pere we visited with Kim's family. We stayed at her parent's house while we were there. We relaxed, had some awesome cookouts and enjoyed a few drinks on the back porch. While we were in town I helped Ted with some work at Keith's house (Keith is Kim's brother).

On the 31st of May, we drove down to Wauwatosa to visit with Kim's Sister. We spent the day visiting with Kary, Mark and Mark's kids (Sam and Emma). We gave Sam a graduation gift while we were there, and went out for lunch with the whole gang before we headed back to De Pere.

On the 2nd of June, we attended the graduation ceremony for Amber (yes she got a graduation gift from us as well). Three high school graduations happened this summer. All our nieces and nephews are growing up so fast, pretty soon we're going to start feeling old :-(

We had a great time visiting with our family, enjoying cookouts, eating out, walking around De Pere, hunting for geocaches, sitting on the back porch and hearing all about the plans these kids are making.

We left Ted & Sharon's on the 3rd of June and finally made it home (Aurora, CO) on the 4th of June. In order to recuperate, we spent the next 3 days recovering from our vacation.

Here's a few of the photos I took while we were home on vacation. We wish we could have seen more of our friends and relatives, but time was tight and we wanted to make sure that we spent some time with all the graduates.
