Fall Party

October 22nd, 2017 @ 6:49 pm

Another Fall Party is in the books! The usual suspects made their way over to Mema’s house with lots of food and the new addition of Soda; Mitchell and Colson’s new puppy! She’s SOOOOOOOO cute and fun to play with! We’re working on Mom and Dad to let us have a dog, but I’m not sure they’re on board with the idea…yet! Thanks to Soda for being so good and making a good impression, though! We started off the evening with some crafting of jar lanterns and personal pinatas. You know, the “girl stuff.” When it came to the “Let’s decorate pumpkins by melting wax crayons with hairdryers” I opted out and headed over to the coffin toss where I could throw things in the air and make up games on the fly. After a lot of playing with Soda, playing Frisbee with Dad, and the big kids giving the littles piggy back rides, it was getting dark and time to hang out by the camp fire. We played with tons of glow stick junk while the boring adults sat around talking and laughing really loudly. I think at one point there was conversation about Mema sabotaging the hay ride and coyotes, but I never stuck around long enough to get the whole story. It was a super fun night with lots of memories made!

On Sunday, we volunteered with some Lebanon and Crawfordsville friends at Lucas Oil Stadium handing out programs and signs to football fans that came to see the Colts play the 49ers. As a result, we got free tickets to watch the game waaaaaaaay up in the nosebleed section. It was worth it, though, because we got to see the statue and the jersey number retirement ceremony for Peyton Manning! They added his name to the Ring of Honor and he took one last snap from Jeff Saturday and hit Reggie Wayne in the end zone. Plus, I got to eat pretzels with cheese and popcorn…snacks!

This kitty can’t math at all! I thought he was going to help, but he only wanted to play!

Lake Day

September 4th, 2017 @ 10:49 am

Yesterday, we met up with Camden and his family in Monticello at their house on Lake Shaffer. The kids played on a crazy floating foam raft and Camden and I invented about 100 games with Nerf guns and other toys. We enjoyed a boat ride down the lake to Indiana Beach, where there was a party with tons of boats all strung together, loud music, and adult beverages. We ate snacks and drank fizzy drinks all day, which was a perfect compliment to all of the sun and splashing.

Happy Birthday, R&T!
