2009 Season

This past week Aislinn and I were in Laguna Seca, CA for the last race of our 2009 season. Afton went to the Twin Cities to stay with Uncle Phil, Aunt Sherrie, Cousins Austin, Jessie, Cole Hermann. Going into the race weekend our cars were second and third in the championship points standing. We had a great race and an even better season finishing 1st and 2nd in the race as well as 1st and 2nd in the championship. All and all we racked up 6 pole positions, 7 wins and over 2 million dollars in prize money. We returned to Chicago on Monday night and drove to the Cities on Tuesday morning to pick up Afton. We was really happy to see us as were we to see him. This next week we are going to have a visitor coming on Thursday, Aislinns mom, Aftons Grandma is coming to town. I will keep everyone posted. Thanks to the Hermann family for watching Afton, even though we practically had to steal him back from you!!!!

Apple Orchard in WI

Today the Family loaded up the car and took a little drive up north to a Apple Orchard. It was the first time for all of us so we really didn't know what to expect. Aislinn and Afton took a ride in a wagon pulled by a lawn mower, we took a hay ride, Afton touched a goat, and we ate a carmel apple, and just so everyone knows if you don't get the carmel from a carmel apple off of a child's face in the first 5 minutes, it turns into carmel concrete and will there until you can locate some steel wool. We also picked a bag of apples and stoped at Mars Cheese Factory and got some cheese curds. It was a fun afternoon and I think Afton had a good time. Next week we are going to MN to play farmer, stay tuned for pictures and stories............... GOOOOOD DAY!
