Week 01.34 - Twenty-Eight Teeth

"Another hotel room, another day.  Life on the road man.  It takes it's toll.  Anyone seen my sunglasses? I've got a killer headache."

You ever wake up in a hotel room
But can't remember the city or state
You look around, you roam around
But your mind just can't relate
You ever been so lost
That a map won't do you no good?

Paige, Valerie, Grandpa Roger and Grandma Denise took on a daunting task.  Driving the 16 some odd hours from Beaver Dam to Denver to visit Paige's Great Uncle Bernie, his family and our friends Tera and Steve.  They stopped at a hotel in some place in Nebraska (let's be honest, even if I told you what city, would you even know where it was, or how to distinguish it from any other random place in Nebraska?) for the night.  Paige, in her true rock star fashion had to trash the place.

Sweep is providing Paige some assistance in keeping her head from rolling back and forth in her travel induced coma on the way to Denver.  (Sweep is the very poorly named monkey on the Paige's left, who is so named due to the previous week's Twins v. Brewers disaster.  The monkey is wearing a Brewers jersey.)


Paige has officially learned (with very little to no encouragement) to "smile" for the camera.  Super excited for all of the cute smiles.  Super sad for the end of capturing Paige without any thought as to what a camera actually means, and that she is expected to be anything other than herself.  (and yes, she actually says "cheese," though it is debatable whether she thinks it is funny, or is actually requesting a snack.)  Paige was home from Denver just long enough to trash the place before we headed off to Wisconsin for the weekend.  It was a quick turn around, but in the end well worth it.

"Bubble spewing lawn mower.  My turn?."

We went camping at Wolf River over the 4th of July weekend.  Gavin (Paige's second cousin) and Paige had a good time together, though the confrontations over the bubble wand and bubble lawn mower got somewhat heated at times.

Paige also had the opportunity to meet her second cousin Collin, who was born on June 26, 2010, and was taken from this world on July 9, 2010.  Collin, we shall forever love you and miss you.
