Wisconsin 2011

Headed over to Wisconsin in August to see the Green Bay Packers in action at their training camp and to see if Garrett could find a few signatures from the players.

After 2+ days of training camp, Garrett obtained 14 signatures from the various players such as: BJ Raji, Barnett, Sherrod, and others.

We made our usual side trip to Wisconsin Dells for the Noah’s Ark Waterpark, zip lines, and “The Ducks.” For one of the rainy days, we headed over to the Cave of the Mounds for an underground adventure.
