Summer Trip to Indy

30 07 2012

Paul had to travel to Seattle for a conference and our daycare was closed for a week…so we took advantage and drove to Indiana to visit Mimi and Gaga. Amelia loved spending time with them. We really appreciated all of the yummy meals and fun activities Mimi had planned for us. Thanks Mimi and Gaga, we’ll be back!

We enjoyed some time on the boat.

Grandma Dorothy even made it onto the boat, via a chair carry.

We were able to squeeze in a quick date night before Paul left for Seattle and had fun bowling with our friends Dustin and Erin. Erin and I have been best friends for almost 30 years!

Last, but not least, we enjoyed a lot of time at home swinging in the back yard and playing with all of the fun toys at Mimi and Gaga’s house.

Amelia did really well on the 10 hour drive to and from Indiana. We made a few fun stops like this one in Grantsville Pennsylvania.
