Umm…On your mark…?

OK, so Mark and I were talking about things today and he says we probably could have left by Sunday except that we need to stop in Green Bay to pick up a part so the RV furnace will work, and the supplier won’t be open on Sunday.  It’s looking like we won’t be leaving Door County until Monday.

Butterfly float at Fall Fest won 1st prize!

OK, so it’s not the Rose Festival Parade or the Macy’s Parade, but we know how to have parades in Door County.  My boss at Door County North (where I work in the Visitor Center) wanted to advertise the things the Ellison Bay Beautification Project has been doing in downtown Ellison Bay, particularly the new butterfly mural on one of the buildings.  So she organized a butterfly float for the Fall Fest Parade in Sister Bay this last weekend and someone caught it on video.  My boss, Mickie, is the leading butterfly… Continue reading

Our 10th anniversary

I didn’t write about this last night because I was obviously busy, but June 13th was Mark’s and my tenth wedding anniversary.  I had thought for several months about what I’d like to do for such a momentous occasion, but in the end we had to scale down our plans.  It still turned out to be good.

From Lincoln, NE

Weather reports lie!  The reason Mark and I drove to Denver last night was because the weather forecast said temperatures would remain above freezing, but when we got up this morning, it was snowing.  It wasn’t sticking to the ground, but it was piling up on cars and such.  Mark said it had been snowing each of the two times he got up with Tucson during the night.  When we left Denver at 10:15 this morning, it was 35° out.   Continue reading

Arizona Sonora Desert Museum

The one thing my father has most wanted Mark and I to see before we leave Tucson (the town, not the dog) is the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.  You may recall we set out to go once before and we got side-tracked by Old Tucson.  We realized that it was now or never, so we went this afternoon in honor of Dad.
