I recently made my first tip to a winery with some friends. Thankfully, I’d attended a wine tasting party a few months ago, so I had some clue of what I was doing, or at least I looked like I did. Continue reading

Mall of America

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

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

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.

I chaperoned Navy’s field trip to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. I was a little too chilly for me, but the boys in my group didn’t seem to mind that it was overcast, slightly breeze, or cold. Kids. Field trip. Not at school. Yeah, they could have cared less about the temperature. Continue reading

The Last Sunday Sundae of National Ice Cream Month

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

SundaySundae

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

Fishing with Navy

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
