John, his mom and Evan all went to the EAA(Experimental Aircraft Association) in Oshkosh WI this past Tuesday. My mother in law recently moved and while cleaning out her condo she found her old stewardess uniform and hat from when she worked for Northwest Airlines. John decided to call the EAA and see if they would want a donation and they brought it out there. Evan had a great time seeing all of the various planes and Evan got the opportunity to ride in a two seater and fly it himself...it was definitely a thrill!

We ended up going to The State Fair on Opening day this past Thursday! Got in for 2.00 per person with two canned items for the Hunger Task Force which I think is a great idea! We had out traditional cream puffs and headed toward the Midway to ride some rides! Opening day had ride tickets for 1.00 which we always take advantage of since Julia loves all of the Kiddie Rides. Evan out of the kindness of his big brother heart used to go on these rides with her and forfeit his tickets but this year she wanted to go all by herself! One of the carnees said she looks like Dora The Explorer as he put her on one the rides. Evan and John went on the roller coaster while Julia and I waved and took pictures! Did not eat any of the fried food on a stick this year. It seems like they love to fry just about anything they can get their hands on and put it on a stick. Julia also liked the animal barn and had fun petting the horses and talking with the goats and sheep!!!
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Evan's 12th birthday on August 7th and Julias 3rd birthday on July 26th. We invited the family for cake on Saturday. I went to a local bakery for Julias cake which was an edible image of her with the princesses....she was so excited. Evan wanted an ice cream cake so I lined a spring form pan with ice cream sandwiches and put crushed Oreos and milk on the bottom and then he picked out two flavors of icecream for the middle. It actually was an easy cake and very Yummy! Evan had his friend sleep over in the tent out back...I was hoping that the mosquitos would not attack. They tell me that they had about 3 hours of sleep....Must have been a great sleep over!
