Long Weekend in Indiana

We had a wonderful four days in Indiana with Chris' family. We flew to Chicago late Wednesday, August 19, and Chris' father was kind enough to make the 2 hours drive to pick us up at Midway. Eloise fortunately passed out on the flight and during the two hour car ride. Fiona was also very well-behaved, watching a show on the plane and chatting to us for a while in the car before also falling asleep. Allison and her kids had driven to Indiana, arriving the day before us.
Friday, we picked up Grandma Bobbi and drove to a nearby mall so the kids could try bungee trampoline jumping. Fiona and Lilly went first, and both LOVED it. It took Fiona a bit to get the hang of it, but Lilly was a pro and even did a flip.

We then spent a sunny afternoon with Bobbi and Chris' grandfather and his wife, Rose. Fiona and Lilly decided to do some sunbathing in the backyard.

Saturday, Rhonda watched Eloise for several hours while we drove back and forth to Indianapolis to the Children's Museum. Some of the exhibits were a little over Fiona's head, but she enjoyed tearing around with her cousins. She especially liked looking at the mummy exhibit, the carousel and the China exhibit (you enter "China" through an airplane, and then can experience interactive dress, food, calligraphy, etc.).

We spent several hours Saturday at Chris' aunt and uncle's house for a pool party. All the kids loved the water, including Eloise, and it was fun to catch up with the extended family.

We took an early flight from Midway Sunday morning and arrived at our house by 10:00am.
