Summer Trip #1

 A few weeks ago, Kevin had a conference to attend in Indianapolis.  Kevin's aunt and uncle happen to live nearby.  The kids and I tagged along for the few days and stayed at their house.  We had a blast!  The first night Benny was a little nervous about sleeping on the cot Marian had set up for him.  I tucked him in and sang him some songs.  He seemed fine and pretty drowsy, so I kissed him goodnight.  Claire was already asleep and Kevin was finished showering.  I told Kevin I was going to take a shower, but he should listen for Benny in case he woke up.  Kevin claims he didn't hear anything.  (Do all men have trouble hearing children?)  Later that night, Marian found Benny fast asleep on the nice hard floor outside of their kitchen.  He escaped out of their basement!

This is what happens when we leave Daddy in charge :)

The next day we went to their children's museum.  Benny is digging for dinosaur bones.

Being a future paleontologist is hard work.

Getting a little help with the dinosaur bones.

Daddy was pleased with this picture.

The following day we went to the zoo.  We ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and watched a dolphin show.

Claire's first zoo trip!

We had lots of fun just hanging out at Marian and John's house too.

Claire loves her little activity mat.

Fun on the slide.


Matthew and Brooke were excellent playmates.

Thanks so much for the fun Marian, John, Holly, Matthew, and Brooke!

  1. That is so sweet Annie, treasure all these moments; I know you do. They go by so fast when you look back. One of my favorite quotes (now) is " The days are long but the years are short". I am THAT old lady now who imparts this wisdom :-)
