My two little brats...which is wurst???

All right, I got the puns out of my system...I promise! On Friday night we went to the World's Largest Bratfest for supper. They had Johnsonville Brats, Boca Brats (vegetarian) and Hot Dogs, along with a well-equipped condiment bar, soft drinks, beer (of course), and ice cream. We also got to see the world's largest grill (65' x 6', details here), pulled by a semi big-rig, much to Bug's delight. They also had a carnival, live music, and other craziness. All-in-all a lot of fun. If we weren't trying to get ready to leave for Oregon tomorrow, we probably could have spent a nice evening there listening to music. As it was, we ate supper, wandered around a bit, the kids went on a couple of rides, and then we packed it in and went home.

Today is running around like crazy trying to get everything packed and ready. We are looking forward (??) to three days of driving before getting to Grandma and Grandpa's house. But once we get to Oregon, we should have a good time visiting with Grandma and Grandpa and Great-Grandma W and having some fun at the zoo and the coast!

Hope the DVD players keep your little "brats" entertained on the road! And hope that your trip, though long, is uneventful...just be careful when confronting all the Memorial Day weekend drivers, 'cause there are more people than usual out on the road for the first 2/3s of your trip.

Can't wait to see all of you!
