In July, we met up with the Faulkner and Gustafson families for our annual Indy adventure. The three of us are still extremely close, yet we live in three different states. It's hard being away from everyday changes going on in each other's lives. Indy is kinda the midway point between St. Louis, Chicago and Cincinnati, so we've made it our meeting place for these annual trips. Last time, Marina was preggars with HD, so now all the kiddos are old enough to play together and sleep well in a hotel room while the adults catch up. We decided to meet up at a Holiday Inn that has an incredible indoor waterpark for Saturday and Sunday (thanks travel agent Marina!).It was a blast for all (including us...yes we loved those waterslides too!). We are hoping to make these meet-ups more of a biannual tradition, so we're looking forward to the next fall/winter destination:) I miss you girls already! Ty had an incredible time with the kids! Warning: lots of pictures. I was the official photographer for the weekend and there were so many cute pix I had a hard time choosing what to post.
