A Day at Lambeau Field

Mikes' family being from this area, it is no surprise that Mike is a huge Packers fan.  We drove up to Green Bay for the 3rd practice of this season.  Mike was in heaven and I really did enjoy it as well.  The Packers are the only publicly owned football team and learning the history was very interesting.

We spent a good 2 1/2 hours at practice and then took a 2 hour tour of the stadium which is quite impressive.  This is for Packers fans:

Vince Lombardi statue

"Curly" Lambeau











Before and after practice children stand in line hoping one the the players will choose their bike to ride to the stadium....a very heart warming tradition.  And so fun to see the players on the bikes!



 Our tour started out on the very top floor of the stadium ....great view....

 Yes, it was cool and windy up there!




The tunnel all players walk through to get out on the field

 After our 7 hours at Lambeau Field we drove over to Bay Beach amusement park.  An old park that still sells tickets for 25 cents each and no ride cost over 2 tickets!!!   We did the ferris wheel.....

I look happy but even one motion ride is pushing it for me!
On our way out of Green Bay we passed the original home of the Packers
