Fall in Indiana

21 10 2014

We took the kids to visit with Mimi and Gaga, attend a family wedding, and Paul took the opportunity to head to Seattle for a few days to meet with his new boss.

Traveling there went pretty well. The kids had a picnic in the airport, Amelia played with a new castle backpack, and Henry (finally) fell asleep on Paul during the flight.

Mimi and Gaga’s house is very pretty and a nice place to stay!

IMG_20141013_191728

It’s also close to a park

IMG_20141013_191627

We visited playscape at the Children's Museum

We visited my high school friend Katie and her kids, right down the street from my parent’s new house

IMG_20141015_165027

Katie’s kids Grant, Luke, and Maddie were very sweet

IMG_20141015_165915

Mimi taught Amelia how to make snowball desserts

IMG_20141016_080022

And the kids got to play with a lot of our old toys that have been so well kept

IMG_20141016_080844

We loved the new toddler room, the petting farm and lunch at Conner Prairie with Mimi

IMG_20141017_102850

IMG_20141017_102936

There is a really fun area to build forts

IMG_20141017_103015

IMG_20141017_103122

IMG_20141017_104957

And a neat little reading hut

IMG_20141017_103224

IMG_20141017_105908

Henry liked the 18 month and under space

IMG_20141017_103514

And Amelia liked the dollhouse

IMG_20141017_103602

They both liked the fort

IMG_20141017_103730

IMG_20141017_104205

And cooking in the log cabin

IMG_20141017_105058

IMG_20141017_105227

Amelia made an owl paper bag craft

IMG_20141017_112832

We drove to Terre Haute on the weekend to attend a wedding- stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch and some checkers first

IMG_20141018_115653

We were really lucky to have my Aunt Abbi, Katy, and Alli to watch the kids while we went to the wedding.

We stayed overnight at Uncle David and Aunt Tina’s house and had a great time. There was hot chocolate, waffles and bacon on the grill in the morning!

IMG_20141019_083149

We had fun in their backyard on the bridge

IMG_20141019_091016

And the swing at the top of the hill

IMG_20141019_091724

IMG_20141019_091755

And throwing rocks in the water

IMG_20141019_092205

We met everyone at Turkey Run for some hiking and lunch

IMG_20141019_110302

Thank goodness for the loaner backpacks for the kids!

Henry held onto his teddy bear for the whole hike.
