It all started on Monday afternoon.....

My son Dave and his girlfriend Jamie came to La Crosse.  We started out showing him the beautiful city of La Crosse from Granddad Bluff.  Just so happens that there is a bar at the bottom of the bluff.  So we decided to stop there and have a beverage.  Next it was on to the Old Style Inn to meet up with Chad after work.  After we had a late lunch, Dave expressed interest in see the bars that his Dad had owned in La Crosse.  So off we went and the next thing you know we were on a "pub crawl".  Funny thing was that at each place more and more people showed up.  I think that by the end of the night we had over 15 people around, mostly relatives and frankly some were relatives that I had forgotten about.  I don't think anyone made it to work on Tuesday and some didn't get out of bed until 4 PM.

Dave, Jamie, Chad, Marissa, Heather, and Mary.

Tuesday evening, my future grandson-in-law put on a spectacular fish fry.  That also attracted a lot of people!  Again, family I had not seen in 15 plus years.  It was amazing.  Evan fried fish that was caught on the last fishing trip to South Padre Island, Texas.  I think he said that he fried 120 filets! 
And I think he looks adorable in my sunflower apron!

My grandson RJ.

Lots of chit chatting!

Also a lot of dogs!

Was a wild three days!!  Thanks for coming Dave and Jamie!
