July 7th we had Dan's "Old" buddies over for a pool party and to grill out. It's wonderful getting together with them and their families. When you look back and reminisce it's amazing how life changes them :)
The 3 Amigos, Musketeers, or Stooges ~ it all depends on how you look at it (or know them).
I took her in to get her hair colored............What Color??
Later in that week Danny had a Dr Appt to have his baclofen Pump refilled up in Green Bay. Everything went well, but we did have the dosage increased and added another med to help out with the dysautonmic storms he continues to have. So far So good with the results since then. We've seen Danny much more alert and having less episodes. YAY!!
While up in Green Bay we were going to spend some time at Bay Beach Park, but it was PACKED....I guess with the day being so beautiful everyone else had that idea too. The Day wasn't a complete bust as we went across the street and did some go karting, mini golfing, and bumper boats.
Friday the 12th we headed out to watch the Timber Rattler baseball game. The weather was perfect! We met up with some of our Special Needs friends as this particular night The Variety Charity donated tickets and a picnic to families with SN children. They were to have fireworks that nite also, but the game went into MANY over time innings and unfortunately it was too late (city curfew), but still a great time was had by all :)
That next day we had our 2nd Annual Special Needs Pool Party....again PERFECT weather :)
Here's Danny chilling out in the pool with his friends Jeromy and Raymond
Then on Sunday.....yes that was a very busy weekend for us :) We had a dive team golf n pool party. What a blast that was and as you can see from the pics another great weather day :)
We took off on the 17th to head into west Wisconsin. Eau Claire bound....
Danny is chillaxing in bed, in the RV.
It was a HOT one!
The Band Perry....it's was hotter then HOT and that girl was still moving it all over the stage :)
The next morning we pulled out and headed up to Turtle Lake to visit Dan's cousin, The Oseros :)
Steven, Danny, and Dan (yes that's Dan in shorts, it doesn't happen often...ya need some sun glasses to look at those legs, lol)
In the AM we were onto the next stop on our venture...... to Amery visiting The Osero's too :)
Michele, Zak, and David
Back in the RV that afternoon and we headed towards Tomahawk. We had a great visit with Papa N Claudia.
We drove to get Ice Cream at The Windmill....aka the Pinwheel :)
Sunday morning we were on the road again heading all the way up to Crystal Falls Michigan to drop Avrianna off at Camp Batawagama, Iron County Youth Camp.
I was amazed and freaked out at the amount of "Pass With Care" on a curve...some of the blind curves. Um NO I'll stay right here in my lane thank you very much.
Dan and I couldn't just stay home to relax, nope back on the road we went. On the 25th Dan and I took the day off and went to Door County. We did some window shopping, as I didn't buy anything. I know I still can't believe it myself. I got some great ideas though :) If anyone knows of a chainsaw carver, let me know. I saw this cute log bear in a fireman coat n hat.....Danny needs one of those :) I did break down and buy some things at the winery and the cheese factory so that counts :)
Tons of cherry trees ~
So far this is the traveling we have done since mid June. Trips done in Orange, Pink, Purple, Green, and Blue. There is still one month left so I'm sure there will more places we will be going.
This is our newest Nurses Ms Krista. She is doing really well with my Lil Man and she is fitting in with our family really nicely. We are very excited to have her on board. She even likes to go thrifting, so we took her on an outing to go shopping last Friday :)
Saturday I was back in the vehicle going back up to Crystal Falls (3 hrs one way) to pick up Avrianna and her friends. What a difference in temps from just alil over a week ago.
Here are the girls all packed up and not so ready to go home. At least mine wasn't. She had such a nice time she even had tears when it came time to go
Sunday I took the kids to see Despicable Me 2. It was a very cute movie ! Both kids enjoyed watching it :)
I am doing well. I'm still off all my MS and pain meds....WOW! I have to say I'm doing better then I have been in a very long time. It's amazing what changing your diet, some exercise, and going "natural" can do. I'm telling ya from experience IT WORKS!! There are things that would make the "normal" person turn their heads, but it works and if it's not broke.....don't fix it, right?
Danny is dealing with a nasty ear infection where his poor ear is even bleeding :( We've been putting in drops and giving Ibuprofen but I think tomorrow I'll have to put in a call to his ENT and get his opinion. There might be a trip down to Milwaukee to add to that map in the near future :(
Thanks for checking in on us. Now to see whats in store for us in August...............
