Driveways full

 We're still here :( Not much going on. Last weekend I went with my sister, Patsy up to our parents house. We painted the living room and decluttered a couple of rooms. I'm going back up on Mothers Day weekend to paint the bathroom.
 Ray was going to go fishing with Sonny (bnl) but the weather wasn't good and they're not biting yet. He worked some overtime, mowed the lawn and tried some fishing with grandson Noah.
  We finally got the camper home. It takes up the whole driveway. Ray started in cleaning the roof.

  When we picked it up at the storage lot, we found a birds nest in the hitch. There were 3 baby birds in it. We looked around for a place to put it and ended up sticking it in another 5 wheel hitch. I hope the momma bird finds her babies.
  We'll pull the camper out of the driveway for the Open House on Sunday.

  You know where we'll be spending most of our time this weekend.

Another week .....

     I guess Wendy and I are taking turns with new post so its my turn.
 GRRR! All quiet on the home sale. No showings this weekend, maybe a open house next weekend.
  Wendy and I rode our bikes around the neighborhood and there aren't any homes for sale. A couple houses that sold recently needed alot of work, so they sold cheap. Dang we shoulda saved our money and let the house run down??? (okay, I'm all vented out).
  We did do more cleaning last week. I went through tools and Wendy was sorting in her sewing room.  Will have to plan a rummage soon. We also did 2 trips to Goodwill.
  We did take a nice hike in the Vernon marsh last week. The marsh is only a few blocks from home and makes a nice 2 mile walk. This time we drove to another entrance off Frog Alley Road and probably did 3-4 mi. Saw geese, turtles, a couple swans and a bunch of ducks.

                                                                                  On Sunday we drove to Cedarburg for lunch. We ate at PJ Pipers Pancake house. Our grandson Emanuel works there. He had given us gift cards for Xmas, so it was time to use them. We went with Randy and Lyn.
  The weather was cloudy and rain looming, we just ate and drove home. We had not been to Cedarburg before but looks like a nice place to explore. They have a big strawberry fest there every spring that might be worth checking out. (mmm shortcake:).
  This weekend Wendy is going up to her parents (Necedah). She will be painting the livingroom with her sister Patsy. I on the other hand will be working hard to catch some fish with Patsy's hub Sonny. yeah I know I got it rough ' ).

Easter fun

  More updating.
We had a great Easter. Colleen & Goyo (daughter & sil), Nate & Bridget (son & dil) and 5 grandsons spent the day at our house.  We had a Easter egg hunt. All 75 eggs were found.

  After our Easter ham dinner, it was time for more fun. Nate and Bridget brought a pinata

  I think they have plenty of candy. Next it was time for birthday cake. Lukas turned 8 last week. It was a long day. The boys were pretty tired when they left and so was grandma & grandpa.
   We have been busy cleaning out stuff in the basement. Ray is cleaning up his work area. Packing up all his tools and getting rid off stuff. I've been cleaning out my sewing room. Filled another black garbage bag. Took down a large table in the laundry area. Had a pile of stuff for the kids to go through. They both took boxes home with them on Easter. Packed up the rest and took it to Goodwill.
   We should have the camper out of storage in 2 weeks. Yeah. We have 2 more campouts on our list this summer. Our spring and fall outings for WI Excel club.

Whats going on

  Time to up date,   We had a open house last weekend with no lookers.  Kind of depressing, but maybe two weeks in a row was to much. With Easter coming up maybe people are busy.
 We have been re energizing our efforts to clean and get rid of more stuff.
 Wendy was reading articles on prepping for house sales.
 Well the kids will be over for Easter they will have more to take home than eggs and candy :).
  The camper will remain in storage for a couple more weeks. We want to get it home, as there are still projects we want to do.
  We'll  probably go camping to Bong the first weekend in May. A little tradition of taking a couple of the grandkids fishing.
  Bong is a state park only 20 mi. from home. It was an area that was to be a airfield around WWII, but only got as far as the ground work. It has a small lake and plenty of hiking trails.
  Our summer plans are starting to fill.  Memorial weekend will be by Wendys parents near Necedah.
 The 4th will be at Ottawa state park.
 Labor day is a Jellystone park by Janesville.
 A long week in Aug. is planned for a trip to North Dakota with Randy and Lyn (Wendys Bro and sig. other). Hopefully we route home through S.Dakota for license and residency.
  We have a Halloween weekend at Pardeeville also planned.
 So, with a wedding and a graduation we should be busy. Gotta luv summer!!
