Sorcha and I left right after school on Thursday for Indianapolis
We did have to pull over and take a power nap at about midnight.
We arrived around 2:30 eastern time...
took a lot of self control not to wake Wren just so I could see her...
I did peak in at her sleeping, though!
Friday morning was spent opening presents
Halloween gifts ....
|And a beautiful Amish made rocker/high chair/desk from Grandpa O' and Great Grandpa Bud|
hats and clothes...
Then off to the apple orchard/pumpkin patch
for caramel corn...
the petting zoo...
Wren did NOT like the cow after he mooooooed
and tons of leaf and pumpkin photos!
Then off to Brown County...a lovely "Lanesbro-ish" area
letterboxing under a sycamore tree
Wren is holding her 1st official "find"
Shopping with Grandma
Craft time back at Shae and Chris'
the skeletons are made from black scrapbook paper and acrylic paint and brads
I made this for Shae awhile ago but lost mine
so I took a pic for a pattern
Wren's first hand print project
Then on Saturday....
Going to the zoo...Zoo Boo! Weekend
just sharks...yes we petted them!
"where'd they go?"
no dolphins but great photo ops!
tigers right by us!!!!
a new zoo shirt to grow into
then a wienie roast at Chris' folk's home
can never get enough kisses!!!!!
Home again on Sunday
Goodbyes are hard but without them we couldn't have hellos!
1200 miles round trip
18 hours in the car
4 tanks of gas
1 speeding warning (1 mile from home!)
I would do it over tomorrow
just to see my girls again!
