2009 Trips

Jersey Boys - February 11I am so glad that I joined you and all the wonderful people on the trip to Chicago to see Jersey Boys.  This is the second time I have seen this and I have to say, I enjoyed it more this time. The seats were perfect and I saw more  than last time.  It is always a pleasure to travel with you and Paul.  I am looking forward to the next time.  Hugs,  Sue

Cubs vs. Padres - May 14Cubbies win 11 - 3 !!!

Grand Alaska Land Tour - May 22 - 31Dorothy S. and Phyllis K. went on the marvelous Grand Alaska Land Tour.  Thank you so much, Dorothy, for sharing your pictures with us.

NASCAR/Michigan - June 14:  I hadn't gone into the pit area in 2008, but did make the trek down there this year.  Even though I am not a "true NASCAR fan", I have to admit it was pretty exciting being among all the cars and the crowd.

National Parks of the West - June 27 - July 8: A traffic jam worth the wait!

Murder Mystery Dinner Train - July 11:  We enjoyed great friends and families, perfect weather and superb food on this lovely Saturday evening trip about the Old Road Murder Mystery Train.

Milwaukee German Fest - July 25:  Milwaukee holds a different ethnic festival almost every weekend during the summer in their wonderful Festival Park, situated on Lake Michigan, offering a huge selection of themed food, bands, shopping, and so much more for the entire family.

Cubs vs. Nationals - Aug. 27: As we were loading the bus to head for Chicago, the weather was looking as though the game would never be played.  The rain then slowed down to a mere drizzle, then quickly cleared up, as we got into Chicago and arrived at Wrigley Field.

Tunica & Graceland - Sept. 22 - 25Then to top off a great tour, it was back to the gift shop area and the diner.  Did anyone have a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich?

FireKeepers Casino - Oct. 30After departing the casino, we stopped for an authentic Amish meal at Rosie's house.  Oh my...talk about delicious food and plenty of it!

FireKeeper's Casino - Nov. 30We had another great day at Firekeeper's Casino in Battle Creek and at Rosie's house for her scrumptious Amish Dinner!  Of course, we can't take pictures at the casino, but I think Firekeeper's is now my favorite casino.  It probably has something to do with me coming home $50.00 ahead, playing on their money alone.  As anyone who goes on our casino trips knows, that is a huge win for me!

Progressive Christmas Dinner - Dec. 5It was a chilly evening, which set the mood for a Christmas Dinner in 3 of our exquisite homes in the Historic District of South Bend. 

Christmas at Opryland Hotel - Dec. 15 - 17You can't help but be totally awestruck at Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville! Add their Christmas decorations and you will be mesmerized.
