Last bit of Green Bay - Happy New Years Eve!

So before the year ended, I wanted to share the last of my pictures from our trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin (where I was rather disappointed that I didn't get any darn Almond Joys - good thing my great buddy Karin hooked me up with a little Christmasy treat box with some!! Thanks, K!)

Anyways, let's get to the pics....cuz the last ones are from tonight - and MrP rocked my supper request!

Brett Favre's Steakhouse
(along the wall to the left is the parking lot area where we partook in the Tailgating party)

Corner of Holmgren Way and Brett Favre Interception...errr...Pass

MrP in front of Lambeau

Vince Lombardi
(also known - probably only by me - as Mr. Superbowl since the Superbowl trophy has his name on it!)

Curly Lambeau, founder of the Green Bay Packers
(also has his name on the field...what a coincidence)

Field view from a small Skybox

Yeah, he could get used to this

Skybox view from their game seats
(and a bargain at only $40K - but you don't get your own washroom)

Paul Hornung donated his Heisman when he became a Packer Legend

Packers players tunner

Plaque at the end of the tunnel

MrP feeling the Kentucky Blue Grass/Synthetic string mix

Pair o' nerds

Lambeau Leap requires some good momentum - it's higher than I expected

Supa' nerd

More nerds

Field from the end zone

 Cheese Curds in Curly's Pub
(now I see what all the fuss is about - good thing I don't live there!)

Tasty local beer

Exact replica of the Minnesota Vikings trophy case
(we took this photo just for my old roommate who is a Vikings fan)


Three Superbowl trophies

Bart Starr's donated rings!

Cherry Starr's necklace
(it started off as a bracelet that Bart had made for her, but they won too often)

Finally, my appetizer supper challenge for MrP from tonight resulted in an amazing meal!
Spinach Salad in Parmesan Frico Cup, Spicy Crab Cakes with Lemon Aoli and
Seared Scallops with Balsamic Cream Sauce. WOWZA!

Looks like he learned a little something in NYC!

Happy New Years everyone!

Green Bay Weekend - First Day and a Half

We survived and had a great time! Here's a ton of pics of our time....can you tell I went a little camera happy (as usual?!)

Waiting at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport for our flight to Green Bay

We made it!

View of Lambeau from our hotel room

1 of 3 Packers Practice Fields


5 hours before gametime - the tailgating had begun

And we made it to our tailgate party at Brett Favre's Steakhouse

Picking up some infant socks for our nephew Matthew
(his parents are Seahawks/Colts fans...they'll love the Packer socks...not!)

Best shirt!
(See pic of #52 below)

All decked out

Ready for the game

MrP loves his KD

The madhouse walking over to Lambeau field
(apparently it's alright to drink beer on the street on the way to the field - but only on game day!)

Awesome seats...yes, I'm super awesome!

Start of the game

And there they go!

C'mon Pack!

Rodgers working his magic

So close to the field

Driver, Jennings...everyone was there

Including my boy, Clay (#52)
I cheered for Clay Matthews when he played for USC (MrP's college team)

Second best shirt
She was also super fun. I was saying how I thought "Brett Favre Pass" (the road) should be renamed "Brett Favre Interception" and she said at the Vikings game, they had a sign (which didn't make it on TV) that said "Brett, even your sexual passes get intercepted!"

Broken candy cane, but a happy guy

With a final score of was a Giant beatdown
(and I loved every minute of it...thanks for some awesome passes, Eli!)
