At Sandy and Dale's Cabin

Here are some pictures of the Peterson, Mueller, Anderson cousin get together on Lake Shamineau. Click this link to see Sandy's slideshow. (note: use Internet Explorer to watch the slideshow.) Sandy writes: "I also threw in a photo of our oldest son Jonathan. He and his girlfriend Abby and his friend from college, Byron Boone, came just after everyone left. Byron had just arrived at the half way point (Stillwater) on his bike trip across the US (Washington to Maine). "

The Sweltering City

Norris and I took a four-day road trip to Chicago this weekend. We had many adventures, including surviving a White Sox day game when the temperature was 102, sitting in the very top row of Wrigley Field watching a thunderstorm approach from behind us, getting lost multiple times, stomping out of Wisconsin Dells in a huff, and starting for home with a total of 29c for the many tollbooths ahead of us!

We also saw the science museum's "Body Worlds" exhibit, the Art Institute's Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit, the Brookfield Zoo, and Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio. The picture is from the new Millennium Park on the lake.
