Yet another fine Lacrosse weekend..

We spent yet another weekend in Lacrosse a few weekends back. It was their annual Farmer's Fest, which includes all sorts of fun like mud bogging, a parade, petting zoo, big BBQ in the park, balloon toss and three-legged races! We spent all weekend visiting the Wargos and it was gorgeous! Saturday night we went to the Dollars for Scholars auction, where all the proceeds benefit upcoming Lacrosse high school graduates (two of which will be Uncle Chris and Justin in a few years, imagine!). Uncle Justin babysat Gabe for a few hours, so we could go up and spend a few minutes having adult conversations. :) They served a great dinner and had a live auction as well as silent. Mike bid on a few things, but they went a little high for our meager budget. :) Overall, we had a really fun weekend and Gabe got to see quite a few new things, including an alpaca (lord, I wish I had a picture!).

Dad and Gabe hanging out in the park

Gabe got to eat lunch outside on the porch.
He was very determined!

Lacrosse Tigercats 2009 high school football champs!! (Uncle Justin is #78, Uncle Chris is on the other side,
I think you can see his hair)

Grandpa Gary even made the parade! These were the "Heroes of Winter", the guys who helped out senior citizens shovel their walks and driveways and helped shovel the streets during the nasty winter we had. That's Grandpa in the back right.

Gabe's new airplane (Mom's latest and greatest Craigslist find!)

Hanging out with Grandpa on the porch. For some reason, Gabe would only let Grandpa rock him to sleep. Good news for mom, she got to relax a little.. :)
