we just got back from a lovely 10 day visit to my in-law's in Indianapolis.
visiting the in-laws, pre-children, used to be a trip to 'the spa' (relaxation, great food, massages, movies lots of sleep)- now it's a trip to the all-inclusive family resort! the grandparents go out of their way to make the 10 hour drive (each way) worth it.
we had a great time- Lee said, at least twice, "my favourite place in the world is Gramaleta's and Buppa Na's!" I'm not surprised since he had ice cream every day, watched 5 Scooby Doo movies, and read 6 new (to him) Hardy Boys books.
:: swam and sunned at the local JCC pool
:: spent a lot of time at the Indianapolis Children's Museum
saw some very cool Dale Chihuly glass sculptures
and, most exciting of all, saw a Beatles tribute band. they played 3 sets from three different eras, including costume and hair changes. Lee was mesmerized. (he LOVES the Beatles)
:: went to a very cool sculpture garden
:: shopped (music store, Target, Costco, fabric store, hobby store) our big US shop of the year
:: exhausted the grandparents and messed up their house :)
:: went fishing with BuppaNa and Unc Nunky
:: had lots of fun cousin and grandparent time
are we lucky or what?
