We went hiking at Turkey Run State Park.

This small rock cave was bigger than Mom’s apartment in Chicago.

The land… of the lost!!!!!!!!

This was part of Trail 3, a “Very Rugged” path.  The kids did great!

This overhang was 20 to 25 feet wide.  It had a cool rust color.

This picture does not look like it was taken in Indiana.

Our next door neighbor’s son plays Center on CG’s freshman team.
(he is over 6′ tall as a freshman!)

He did great and CG won!  (it was hot in those metal bleachers)

I dropped Little Lady off at a church game night.

These posters were on the wall.  I like that they
have a sense of humor

Good eats at our local mexican restaurant… except they had no beer on tap!

(The Little League World Series was on a TV, so Little Man was preoccupied)

It was windy all day.  All day.

I talked my friend into flying kite.  By the time we got there…. no wind.

Poop.

 So…. my friend taught me how to drive his stick shift car.
(One time, when our car was in the shop, he offered me his manual car,
but I didn’t know how to drive it)

Now, I think I could manage pretty well.

Sheeeeeeeeeee dogggggie

I saw this used truck on the lot.

I think Mom would look so cool pulling up to school in this bad boy.

I especially like the ram plate.

Beautiful lawn… unless it has GOOSE POOP IN IT!

Lately, geese have been coming up to your patio and pooping all
over our yard.

Today, I put on a rubber glove and cleaned up most of it.

yyyyyyyyyuck!

A first… he said:  “You may be right.”   We just wanted to note this moment…

He caught a bunch of fish and invited us over for a fish fry.

My friend used his HUGE skillet.  It is 20″ wide.
The skillet makes me laught because it makes him look
like a little kid when he uses it.

The fish was yummy.

My station had an employee apprectiation day held at
the Indianapolis Zoo!

It was nice to see everyone outside of work and with
their families.  It was a wonderful time.

Just to the right of Little Man’s head, you can see the cheetahs sleeping.

They had a new area where you can test your speed vs. a cheetah.
(how far can you run in 4 seconds)

august-20c.jpg

I liked the elephants, but we did not get to see the baby.

Little Man with a Bobo!

Mom spotted the new tiger at the zoo.  (napping like Tinkerbell)

We finished our day at the Zoo with a dolphin show!

If you look close, you can see both dolphins jumping up to touch the
red punching bags.

Colts game!  The station GM invited a select few employees to attend
a Colts pre-season game.

The tickets were in our suite!  This is the opening kickoff!

Since Little Man has been before, I took Little Lady!  We had so much fun!

We scoped out the gift shop.  The big fingers cracked me up!

Little Lady got into the game… even though the Colts were not.

Little Lady had so much fun!  She was very nice to everyone, including
my GM.  She even gave him a big hug!  Little Lady totally won him over!
