My husband was born in Sheboygan and lived in Waubeka, which is the birthplace of Flag Day. We enjoy the celebration of Flag Day every year, but one year, it was enhanced by the use of fireworks! I kept thinking that July 4th had already happened! It was a bit confusing!
I was born in Milwaukee and then moved to Port Washington. In Port Washington, they have a big day on the 3rd Saturday in July, called Fish Day. What else would you celebrate in a city on the coast of a big lake? Gary and I went to the same middle school for several years, but really didn't know each other, although, one year we were both in the same band! Little did we know what would happen 13 years later! In the middle of 8th grade, my family moved to Waukesha.
Our paths crossed again in Marshfield after two of our Port Washington friends did some matchmaking in the local Dairy Queen! We married, and honeymooned in Door County, Wisconsin in October and had the place to ourselves. Door County has many lighthouses and the aforementioned link gives really good information about them. I think lighthouses are neat! Then we had both of our kids. However, since both of us had grown up near Lake Michigan, we felt landlocked in central Wisconsin. Five years ago, our dream came true and we were able to move to Sheboygan. This brought us closer to the lake and closer to family! Now we can drive past the lake anytime we want.
