Memorial Day weekend

Julie’s school is out for summer as of last week, so we decided to go to Madison, Wis., for my days off to watch some of the UPA College Nationals there. We had two really good meals at Great Dane Pub and at an Afghan restaurant called Kabul. We listened to the unabridged, book-on-CD version of “Horns” by Joe Hill on the drive up and back, though we still have two discs to listen to. We were only gone two days, but we were so busy that it seemed longer.

I haven’t posted about my trip to the Orlando area yet. I had a family reunion down there. We had a couple rental houses in the Kissimmee St. Cloud area.

Besides catching up with family, we got to do some swimming in the pools, jet skiing, water skiing, video game playing, and my cousin and I played in a pickup ultimate game. A group of us went to the Orlando art museum. Mom and I went to “Star Wars: In Concert” at the Amway Center, where the Orlando Magic play.
