Family Daze

We had a great time at this year’s Pleasant Prairie Family Days! Kevin conquered the Titanic slide (twice), played a bunch of games and won some trinkets and took a train ride in a drum, among other things. We all watched the Aquanuts Waterski show on Lake Andrea, then came home for a rest.

The weather was interesting. We had a storm pass through about an hour before the fireworks. We left home again at 7:30pm to get there a little early and we could see the threatening clouds. In fact, Bear and George were going to meet us there, but the rain scared them away and they didn’t go. On our way there we had a torrential rain, then it stopped just before we entered the park! Perfect timing. In fact, I think the rain forced a LOT of people leave early, so it wasn’t even very crowded when the show actually started! It ended up being a very nice show, and they even started it 15 minutes early… Probably fearing more rain if they waited any longer. The ground was a little damp, but we had our portable chairs, so we were set. The show was really great, and I took hundreds of photos to share with everyone. I’ve narrowed it down for to my “Top 130.” Click here and enjoy!
