After a trip to visit my family in Wisconsin, I could hardly wait to look at all the neat photos we had taken of the grand kids, their new (at the time) house, and other things we had seen on our trip! Wisconsin is so beautiful, and has always been one of my favorite states!
We had a really nice time as Sean drove us through Downtown Milwaukee, and showed us how the residents of Wisconsin really drive! What a shock! We had to hang on to our hats to get from the 'burbs' to some neat night spots! And I thought Michigan drivers had TRUE GRIT! Whoa!
We got to see some nice shopping areas, and of course had to go to the store for fresh fruit and veggies. Their favorite store is very nicely done up - makes you want to keep on buying, it's so nice and quaint in appearance - especially the bakery and deli areas.
And - - HEEEERE's RICH! He's the older of the two. A mom could not ask for better sons than these young men! On a final note, I would like you to know why these photos are so special to me --- I could not remember taking these particular shots - and finally it came to me. These two boys that I raised are usually wonderful, but on this particular occasion, they captured my camera, held it hostage, and took these wonderful pics of themselves, just waiting for me to unravel!!! Well, was I ever surprised! And I got a good laugh!!!

Thanks for visiting, and for all of your wonderful comments last week. I hope to have more to read later on today! Please visit Pictures, Pots, Pens , for more of Friday's Favorite Family Fotos participants.

Who would have thought?!...two cows for Foto Friday!

That is just too funny that your guys took photos and didn't tell you. I can't imagine what went through your mind when you saw them!

Thanks for sharing,

What fun and naughty boys!
Loved your post today too.
We 'always' talk about Michigan drivers, in the negative mean the true offenders are in Wisconsin? Who knew?

(hey, I was from MI, so don't feel guilty talking about y'all behind your backs! He hee!)

So cute how boys find such creative ways to love their mother! I have one who would do something like this, too. :D
