special report: wisconsin

ya'll already know that my mama and daddy were wisconsin-ing last week, but now i'm gonna tell you about their way amazing adventures!  i have some handy dandy visuals to help you imaginate everythingie.
so first like, mama and daddy got on a hooge plane and flew to chicago and then on to green bay, wisconsin.

as soon as mama and daddy landed in wisconsin, the very first thingie they did was find some yummy cheese curds to eat!  did you know that cheese curds squeak when you eat them?  teehee.  (oh, and btw, mama and daddy did bring back some cheese curds for me and asa.  JACKPOT!)

after mama and daddy pigged out on cheese curds to their hearts' content, they made their way to my great grammy and grampy's house.  remember how i woofed that it was their 60th wedding anniversary?  there were bunches 'n tons of festivities!  on the morning of great grammy and great grampy's big day, they discovered that their front yard had been flamingoed in their honor!  look at all of those crazy pink flamingoes!

then everybuddy asked great grammy to try on her wedding dress.  here she is provin' that it still fits! doesn't she look totally cute, too?  i can see why great grampy wanted to marry her 60 years ago.

to prepare for the super ginormous pawty that was gonna take place, all the girlies in the family took great grammy, and they went and had pedicures.  i think great grammy kinda sorta really enjoyed that!

finally, it was time to pawty!  lotsa great grammy and grampy's family and friends came from all over the country to wish them a very super happy 60th wedding anniversary!
wanna see a picture of my great grammy and grampy on their wedding day?  they are the couple on the right.  my great grammy's brother was the best man (top left), and my great grampy's sister was the maid of honor (bottom left). 

here's a picture of the super delish cake shaped like a 60!  how cool is that?!  mama said that the 6 was a chocolate cherry cake and the 0 was a lemon poppy seed cake.  mmmmm!  then there's great grammy and grampy's wedding portrait in the background.

of course great grammy and grampy had to do the cutting of the cake just like at their wedding 60 years ago!  aren't they just totally adorable like?

after the cake was cut, everybuddy pawtied and celebrated until they were super pooped.  it was a grrreat day!

What an awesome party! They are super adorable, I'm so glad your people were able to go see them.

Hugs & love,

Lola said...

Oooh, happy 60th to your Grammy and Grampy. They look like a wonderful, happy couple.

Ummm..cheese curds? What are these cheese curds. We've never seen them or anything. I feel this is a serious gap in my body of knowledge. I wonder if they can be ordered online.

Isn't it funny that in and around any city you can probably get nommables from all over the world, but you might remain ignorant of important regional delicacies just from other parts of the country?

lotsa licks, Lola

Awww! Your grammy and grampy are so cute together! We love that picture of her in her wedding dress!

Mom says it's definitely worth the drive to Wisconsin, just for the cheese curds! Did they go to Culver's and have fried cheese curds, too?

Mango said...

60 years? That is a long time. They must be used to each other by now, eh? How wonderful that your humans were able to go and be part of the celebration.


Tucker said...

Wow 60 years! That's great.

Now please tell us more about the cheese. Oh and interesting fact - the pink flamingo lawn thingy was invented in Maine - seriously - I know it doesn't make sense cause Maine don't have flamingos but I don't think Wisconsin has them either.

woof - Tucker

What a fun day! That's amazing they've been married all these years and that your great grammy can still fit into her wedding dress! Love those flamingoes!

Your mom asked where I saw the ghosts. I saw them at my house. Only one time each (separately) and only for a few seconds. They seem to be friendly spirits as they haven't done anything to hurt or scare me. Well, it did kind of freak me out to see them though. One was a woman in a long dress. The other was a man. Last year I had a psychic reading and he told me that I have a man and a woman spirit around me. The woman has something to do with the property. The man was someone from my family. I don't know how much I believe in psychics (the reading was really a lot of fun though!) but when he said that, I remembered the ghosts.

Also, when I was a kid, a friend and I supposedly saw some weird looking houses. They were weird because they were kind of see-through. We went back to look at them the next day and they weren't there. I have absolutely no memory of this but my friend insisted that I was there and saw it too.

Doris Sturm said...

You did an awesome job posting, Booker man! Woof-woof!

Loved the pink flamingos on the lawn LOL and the cake looked so delish. It's wonderful grandma fits in her wedding dress still - good for her. Congratulations, 60 years is quite an achievement.

p.s. I want some squeaky cheese...I had cheese curds before, but just once and I will never forget how much fun it was to eat them!

Aksharaa said...

Looks like that was some celebration. I love hearing about couples who manage to stay together that long. How wonderful. Loved the pink flamingos in the front yard.

Mack said...

Two Pitties in the City said...

JD and Max said...

Hi guys,

Wow, what a pawsome pawty, we loved all the photos! Your grammy and grandpa are so lovely - that last photo had FH getting a bit misty eyed!

Oh - you mentioned a package. We got something from Dogs Trust addressed to 'Mr Jones' with nothing else on it - it had a pawsome toy in it but as we had no idea who it had come from it's been sitting on the side as FH says we can't play with it until we find out where it came from. Is it from you?

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
