Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – Timber Rattlers – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call


The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


Yesterday we joined the people from Mr. Dollycas’s office for YOOPER DAY at the ballpark. His boss is from the U.P. 🙂 We scored cool hats and T-shirts as we entered. The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers were playing the Burlington Bees. The Rattlers were behind 5 runs at the end of the first inning. A rally in the 8th brought them close, but they ended up losing 8 – 6. 🙁

It was definitely not a nice Spring day. The temperature stayed right at 39 degrees and the wind added to the chill. But it didn’t rain or snow! 

Mr. Dollycas and I lasted less than one inning before we made the trip upstairs to the indoor club room where we could watch the game through the windows or on the television. We were also able to watch the NFL draft.

By about the third inning Daughter #2 and Daughter #1 and her family joined us in the warm indoors. Grandson Kaden ventured out on the balcony and stayed there for most of the game. His brother Remi joined him for part of the time. The kids went back to their seats for the last couple of innings, but us grandparents stayed where it was warm. The boys really enjoyed the game. Son #2 sadly had to work. 

We enjoyed a fun tailgate before the game and we had a great time all day despite the cold. We were already talking about going to another game this summer before we left the park, either the Timber Rattlers again or maybe the Milwaukee Brewers. Papa was just thrilled that we all enjoyed the game so much! 

Natalie and her mom were on an adventure of their own. They took the train to Chicago and to the American Girl store to celebrate birthdays with her girl cousins and their moms.
