Not much going on to celebrate the Cinco-Sesqui, it's the 150th anniversary of the Mexican Army conquering French in the Battle of Puebla 5/5/1862, but lots going on here anyway.
Saturday began early for me as I helped set up soccer fields at Waukesha West at 7:00 a.m. for a Special Olympics tournament. ABB Company was sponsoring the games and I was one of their volunteers. Made myself useful when we had to restripe a new field to replace the one with too many puddles. Was a little cool for the athletes, but at least the rain had passed. I left before the games began, but I'm sure it was a great success.
From Waukesha West I proceded to the first Waukesha Farmers' Market of the season. Wanted to see if Kiwanis were selling any pine trees left over from last weekend's sale and get a look at the expanded offerings at the market. There were no trees, but saw much more than just plants and vegetables however. Lots of delicious-looking baked goods were available. It's going to be a good season.
Was meeting the rest of the Waukesha Tattoo Company team at 9:30 before the 10:00 start to the 2012 RiverWalk for Breast Cancer so I couldn't stay too long at the market. It was the first time I'd joined thousands of others for the largest annual walk in Waukesha, and proud to be member of such a thoughtful and generous team.
Immediately after the hike met Tam for a triple birthday party at the in-laws. We were celebrating Madisen's fourth, Joshua's fifth and Rob's ??th. Lots of toys to play with and lots of good food to warm and satisfy.
Later, close to sundown, came back downtown for the last of the Art Crawls before the big GuitarTown gala and unveiling 5/31 and 6/1. I'd hoped to see some of the completed 10 foot sculptures, but they're still under wraps. Did, however, see three of the playable and one non-playable decorated standard size guitars.
Met a lot of super people doing good things on Saturday but, thanks to clouds, never did see the Super Moon.
