On Wisconsin!

We spent the week of May 12-20 visiting family and friends in Wisconsin. The trip was good... except for the departing flight out of Salt Lake. We had mechanical problems, which delayed us, causing us to miss our connection in Denver. We finally arrived in Milwaukee 3 hours late. Poor Mom and Bruce had to pick us up at midnight! We got to their house in Grand Marsh at 2:30 am.

The next day, Dan and I went to the Wisconsin Dells for my 10 year high school class reunion. Hard to believe that it's been 10 years! We met up with Adam & Mary, Michelle & Dan, Christi & Josh, Melissa & Eric, and Chris & Natasha before the main event for some miniature golf at Pirates Cove. The weather was very warm and some of us got sunburned!

Here are some pictures from the reunion at Pedro's Restaurant!

It was very nice to catch up with everyone - it's amazing how fast time flies! I hope it's not another 10 years before we can see each other again!

The next day (Sunday) my mom held a big open house on Mother's Day for the family. It was the first time in a long time that I have seen my cousins and their spouses & children, plus my aunts and uncles. Even though it was rainy, we had a good time!


A few days later, Dan and I met up with Jaime Penaflor for brunch. Jaime is now living in Madison, soon to move into his new house in Sun Prairie! We are very excited for him! It was super nice to catch up with Jaime, too, who has been busy with work (2 jobs) and family.

Later that week, we went to Green Bay to visit my brother Kit, and his puppy, Nasha. We had a good time visiting with him, and he cooked us lunch on the barbeque grill.

Dan had to leave early to fly to San Francisco for work, so Mom, Bruce and I took advantage of the extra few days and went horseback riding. (Dan wouldn't have been able to go anyway, since he is allergic to horses)




This Max. He is the newest horse on the Borchert ranch. I rode him both days, and he was a lot of fun!




















By the end of 2 days of riding, I felt like a real cowgirl!










<---- Here's mom on Trigger and me on Max. ... and Mom & Trigger and Bruce & Dollar.








This is Pard (Bruce's horse) with Pus (the Cat). Since Pard didn't get to go for a ride (he's only green broke), he was feeling lonely. Good thing Pus was there to keep him company!

All in all, we had a great time in Wisconsin! Thanks to Mom and Bruce for a very fun week!
