John and I decided to go to Sauk City for the annual Cow Chip throwing contest over Labor Day weekend.
It had been two years since we had been there and we felt it was high time to go back.
We were not sorry that we did.
On our way, we stopped at East Towne where I bought some new back to school clothes because everyone knows it is easier to go back to school if you have new clothes to wear!
We ate lunch at the food court while the rain poured outside.
After the rain shower, we took off for Sauk City.
We started out at the park, walked through the craft show, bought nothing, and then watched the cow chip competition.
I actually had to bring a few cow chips back for Mrs. Hathoway's class since they had been discussing them on Friday in school, not sure why that discussion was happening but I was more than happy to oblige.
It was the 40th year for the cow chip throw, so all the cows had birthday hats on.
They handed out cow pies at exactly 3:14 (pies at pii, get it?)
Here I am holding the cow chips for the kids at St. John's.
We stayed at Ganser's Motel.
Such a bargain for a nice room.
We walked on the riverwalk before having dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant.
The food was yummy.
After our dinner, we went over to a local bar to have a few beers and watch the Badger game.
We didn't know the start time and were an hour early, so by the time the game started, I was ready to head back to the motel.
The clientele in the bar did not help the matter either.
A lady almost pushed me off my stool at one point.
We bought a six pack and some snacks and enjoyed the rest of the evening in our room.
Badgers lost but even that could not dampen our spirits.
On Sunday, we took a bike ride around Sauk City and Prairie du sac.
It is such a great biking city for us because it is flat.
We biked for about two hours.
Shopped at Greenway Station on the way home and had dinner at Fazoli's.
Great fun weekend.
Now, one more day until school starts.
I feel ready, but am I?
