We had a chance to spend the weekend at the Mall of America. It was weird not having the kids in tow for the weekend, especially when there was an indoor amusement park and a candy story! Continue reading
We took a day trip to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with Lily’s Girl Scout troop. We hadn’t been in a few years, so I was excited to come back. I love history and science. The kids love the hands on.
I didn’t see the current exhibits online before we got there, so I was surprised to see The Power of Children: Making a Difference featuring Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White.
Today was the last Sunday of National Ice Cream Month, so we just had to venture out for some frozen confection. It’s be a shame if we didn’t.
It was recommended that we visit Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt. (It is where Spoonz used to be located at on Thomas Road by Target.)
I know this technically isn’t ice cream, but they had Cake Batter froyo! My favorite! I haven’t been able to find it since Yum Yums moved to Wisconsin. And, fresh fruit! Whipped cream is available upon request, but it is not on the topping bars.
With Lily at camp for the week, this week has been all about Navy. Tomorrow, I go pick up Lily, so Navy and I are having one last little bit of fun, just the two of us!
After getting gas, we headed to Monroeville. Navy wasn’t sure why because it was a surprise. The only thing he knew was that we were going out for dinner. Continue reading
It was just us tonight. Doug had to work a double, so he wasn’t able to deal with all of my fishing pole issues. I hate open reel poles. Things do not go well for me.
Navy and I did got an get some new bobbers, weights, and crappie bait. I seem to have misplaced my tackle box. Not sure if I should look for it, or just put a new one together in the meantime. Ah, the joys of having moved recently! Continue reading
Since Lily is at camp this week, we had dinner at one of Navy’s favorite places, Coney Dog Cafe.
Navy ordered his usual, a plain hot dog and chips. I got my usually, a Chicago dog!
It is so hard to find a decent Chicago dog, especially outside of a sports venue. I usually get one when we go to a baseball game, but I was so happy to find a local Chicago dog that didn’t come with the price of admission.
We both ordered root beer floats. There’s just something about root beer and hot dogs that go together. And, you can never go wrong with ice cream!
We haven’t been able to visit this place as much as we used to. Navy and I have made it our special spot. We’ve been going here together since we was 4 and in preschool.
