My sister and I made a deal awhile back : that we would do our best to see each other once a month. Living only two hours apart, this has been a pretty attainable goal for us so far. Lately, our monthly visits have turned more into bi-weekly visits. It has been wonderful..... no complaining here! The blessing of these visits can best be summed up in one way : by watching the ease and comfort and love shared between Lucy and her Papa, Aunt, and cousins. It is priceless! I am so glad that lately our monthlies have become weeklies!
As a result, my camera has been working overtime! And I have to admit, some of the editing and organizing of my photos got lost in the shuffle! But finally, I am caught up!
This was a fun outing we took to Connor Prairie in Indy.... a must-do activity for any Fall enthusiast.
Per their website, Connor Prairie is the "nation's finest outdoor living history museum." They really know how to do it up right in the Fall!
Interactive music jams are just one of the many things we partook in....
Lindsay's rock star boyfriend, Luke, joined us. As captain of their high school soccer team, he lead them all the way to the state championships----and they won! for the second year in a row! and he scored two of the three winning goals! But he would never tell you any of this , which is why I am! Yeah, like I said , he is rock star......
The hay ride is the best this side of the Mississippi , complete with a headless horseman chasing you on his horse, and a great tour of the beautiful grounds.
We also went to an old log cabin, in the dark, lit by candlelight, and listened to haunted ghost stories. Lisa and I were laughing because it probably wasn't the most appropriate thing for Lucy. You win some--- you lose some!
These puppets looked a little creepy to Lucy when I showed her the picture below, but she was not complaining during the show! This is the second time now that we have seen a Stevens Puppets show; they are unforgettable! The owners do all the creating and maintaining of the marionette puppets, as well as developing the shows, which are interspersed with hilarious adult humor.
This was "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."
We also went to an open house recently at Lindsay's High School, so we could hear her choir perform. This is Lindsay with one of her BFF's from grade school, Audrey.
Awwwwwwhhhhh.....How much does this girl love her Papa?
And how much does she adore her Aunt Lisa?
Lindsay's choir, "Golden Voice," did not disappoint. They were incredible! And, if we just so happen to live in Indy when it is time for Lucy to go to high school, she will without a doubt go to Guerin. This school is so filled with the Spirit. The teenagers are unbelievable! I just loooove this school!
And if Lucy doesn't go there, then I will just settle for making her the official representative :
