Spring Break Road Trip

Over Spring Break we decided to take a road trip to visit Matt's brother Dan and his wife Stephanie in Indianapolis, IN. It was a big trip for us, but so much fun! We stayed a night in a hotel both ways to help break up the driving which the kids loved because they are big fans of hotels!

We were able to visit the Children's Museum which is something we love to do whenever we are in town. It is so amazing! We were also able to go up to visit Air1 - the radio station where Dan is an on-air personality! We even got to all sit in on a live session (except Melia)! The kids got to make sound recordings of themselves in the sound studio and we enjoyed meeting Dan's on air counterparts Eric and Mandy.

The kids had a blast playing spies with Uncle Dan - Oliver's dream come true! The had their headquarters in the basement and would sneak up to do secret missions - mostly playing tricks on me and Stephanie. The "big boys" had their fun too! We were also able to see the Junior High where Stephanie teaches, and multiple members of our family got a stomach bug - some on the road. Fun times!

We always enjoy spending time with family and this time was no exception. Dan and Stephanie were great hosts and gave us the best surprise when we walked in the door - they are expecting their first child this fall!!! YAAY!

We love y'all and are so thankful for our relaxing, fun, comfortable, cold, but happy time in Indiana!

 Visiting the Indianapolis Children's Museum - so awesome!!

 Indiana Jones memorabilia - mommy was in heaven!

 Melia playing "balance" - one of her favorite games right now!

Playing baseball in the freezing weather!


I love this action sequence. Brothers...

It snowed on us our last day there. Gabby was SO happy - she had been asking to see snow all winter!
