Partying with some Packers


Hmmm, wonder what’s going on here. Do you have any ideas?


Well, first up is me with Gilbert Brown. I know , I look goofy!  I think he had just told me to eat a cookie!


Here he is signing a photo for me. These Green Bay Packer players were at the huge annual fundraiser for Angel on My Shoulder. It’s a huge event that happens every June - maybe you want to plan a trip up here for the next one? Gilbert was there last year as well and he is loads of fun! This year he brought his brother with him - they look a lot a like. About a month ago they were in our favorite Chinese restaurant when we picked up some food.  So you never know where he'll tunr up, but if you see a Hummer painted like the Hulk, he's nearby.


Here’s William Henderson signing my photo. He brought his father and his sweet son along. The families spent the day fishing while we all went to the golf course.


Craig Newsome was also there and here he is signing my photo. He was the quietest of them all. They all like to raz the 'paparazzi' and we give it right back!  We were impressed that they all prayed together before eating.


And here’s the one of me with Craig and William. All of these were taken during the Party with Pack on Thursday evening.


Before the golf course, Friday morning starts with a breakfast at the Wolf Pack Café, and those Packers were hungry! But I will not let them in the door until we get the mandatory shots of them with the owners of the café in front of the sign. Amazing that lil ole me can stop three huge football players isn’t it?


We spent 14 hours shooting photos on Friday but had loads of fun doing it!  All of the photos in this post were taken by my husband, which might be obvious since I'm in so many of them but I feel I should say anyway.  Credit where credit is due kinda thing - ya know? ;-)

If you want to know more about Angel on My Shoulder or see Leroy Butler and Gilbert from last year then please visit this post.  It's truly a great organization that I'm proud to help out!


  1. How much for for something so wonderful!

  2. You have to be a Green Bay Packers fan now after being so lucky to get three autographs. How cool. They look so friendly too. Hope the fund raiser went well. Have a great day.

  3. Those are some good guys! What a nice time.

    (By the way, I think the angel with the droopy eyes is the angel of sleeping mothers. We all kind of look that way at one stage or another!)

  4. You look fantastic! I'm so glad you had so much fun.

  5. The owner of the cafe is big enough to be a player himself!

  6. How fun!! I use to party with the Miami Dolphins but that was way back in my younger days. Fun, fun, fun! :-)
