It was a WOW weekend for Willmar Fests. Friday night our family went to the Willmar Stingers game for Q102/Willmar Fests night. James and Tim helped the candidates participate in some silly contests in between innings. Andrew and Madeline had a great time too. Madeline had been walking around and came back to say that she was going to run the bases. I tried to explain that would happen for kids at the end of the game, but she said that the lady told her to come now. I let her go and the next thing you know she’s on the field running from 2nd base to 1st base to get dressed in an adult sized baseball uniform and then running to home (while losing the pants, shoe, etc.). It was fun to see. The boy that was running from 2nd base to 3rd base to home got there before Madie did. Looked like they both had a great time. Friday night’s game was like the Energizer Bunny—it just kept going and going and going. Finally at 11:30 I called it quits and headed home knowing I had to be up at 5:30 am to get to work Saturday morning. The kids didn’t want to leave until the end so James stayed with them until it ended just after midnight with a Stingers win. Here are some pictures from the night.

Saturday was fun being on the air in the morning and evening as we got ready for WOW—Works Over Water. The weather was amazing (thankful for that)! Thanks for the nice comments about Works Over Water. We’re happy to be able to put on such a big fireworks show for Willmar Fests.
Sunday afternoon we had family pictures with my parents and brother’s family. Again the weather was amazing (thankful for that)!
It truly was a WOW weekend! Hope yours was the same.
Another busy summer week is underway for us with baseball, theater, appointments, etc.
I’m looking forward to this Wednesday night from 5 -8 pm when our Q102/KWLM/Big Country/The Train Relay For Life team will be working TIP night at the Pizza Ranch in Willmar. Bring your crew and eat at the Pizza Ranch and you’ll be able to TIP us as we clean your tables up throughout the night. All the TIPS we earn will go to the American Cancer Society. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, etc! We want to be busy working this Wednesday night from 5 – 8 pm. If you aren’t able to attend, but would like to support my fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society, you can donate HERE.
I will be out of the office on Tuesday all day for a meeting, so I’ll chat with you again on Wednesday.
