Summer 2013

May – Augustraisin bran reflector 75x75

Wow, what a great summer! I don’t think we could have packed much more in. Wisconsinites tend to start summer in May since there is so much going on and warm days don’t last long. We were no exception. Our summer began May 13 with our trip to Cedarburg.

Trip to Titletown-Doing the Lambeau Leap in Green Bay!


We were bound for Titletown!   We left Algoma at 12:45 and headed to Green Bay for the last pre-season game that was to begin at 6 PM.  My husband’s family owns season tickets, pased down from his late father.  We are big Packer fans.

It was so exciting to be there, Lambeau Field is BIG, they underwent some renovations not too many years ago. They have been adding more seats as well. This is a drive-by shot. We found are big fans also of free parking so we found a spot in a nearby neighborhood not too far from the stadium.

We began our walk to the stadium, Packer worship was quite evident, more here than anywhere else in WI.

The excitement was high as we were admitted into the Atrium. it is HUGE! Here is a view from the 3rd floor.



We found our seats, it had a great view of the field and one of the screens.



The game began with a large Packer Flag and the National Anthem.

We really had fun at the game, being there is far different than watching it on TV, so real!

Our favorite part of the game was a photo with “St. Lombardi”, a big fan present at nearly every game who has a cool Bishop-like costume adorned in Packer regalia. Our “crazy character” picture of the month.

What a great day, Go Pack Go!
