A Night in Indy

Since I was on "spring break" last week and my brother Eric is off on Fridays, I headed up to Indianapolis to spend the day and night with him! It was fun to be able to just hang out even though he had to take a lot of business calls... I guess you are always working, even when you're not working, when you own your own business!

We went to the park, went shopping, out to eat, and then I finally got to cross #4 off my list - go to the drive-in!

Yes, it's true. I had never been to the drive-in before last weekend! We tried to go last summer, but it was sold out.

The whole experience was pretty cool, but it was too chilly outside for us to sit outside of the car and Eric had his drum set in the back of his SUV, so we couldn't sit back there either. But I can definitely see how it's really fun in the warmer weather. It's also pretty cool that you can watch up to 3 movies for the price of one... however, we only watched one because Eric and his girlfriend, Jamie, both had to work Saturday morning. We saw Evil Dead which was alright but really just more gross than anything.

On Saturday morning I went to work with Eric - he was leading an anger management group. I worked out some of my issues ;) Just kidding, but it was cool to see him doing what he does all the time. Proud of him!

I was hoping to get to hang out with Adam and Jenn too since they live up there now, but Adam was out of town working almost the whole time. We did get to have lunch before I left though! And it's alright, Adam is coming down for the half marathon in 2.5 weeks!! (which we are not ready for at all, btw.. should be interesting!)

Thanks for the fun weekend, bro! Love you!

Easter

So Easter was a week and a half ago and I am just now writing about it. But hey, that's better than my track record for the rest of the year so far.. at least it's not the 4th of July and I am just now writing about Easter. That being said, I can't believe it's already APRIL! That means Josh's birthday is in 3ish weeks and I should probably figure out what I'm going to get him! Who has good ideas?!?!

Anyway, Easter weekend was good. We celebrated with Josh's family at his sister's house on Saturday and then went to church and to my mom's on Sunday. Lots of good food was eaten, eggs were found, and babies were snuggled.

Here it all is in pictures:

We took this picture from multiple angles and we were squinting in all of them!

See?

I just want to know when did these kids grow up?! When did Avery get big enough for a pony tail? When did Gage become a little man with missing teeth that can read? I am pretty sure it all happened over night!

I don't think I've mentioned it here, but Josh is now heading up the training for the GORUCK Challenge that's taking place in Louisville on May 4th. There's a team from CrossFit doing it. Basically it's an 8-10 hour event that covers 20 or so miles... you do it with a team, with a "ruck sack" full of bricks. It's supposed to be similar to Special Ops training... they'll do obstacles, etc, that they won't know about until they get there. It sounds pretty intense and they always come home walking funny and with tight shoulders so I've stayed out of it :)

I'm sort of considering doing a "GORUCK Light" though... we'll see.

Anyway, the above photo shows Josh packing bricks with his bro-in-law RJ, who was joining them on a training ruck that night.

That was basically our Easter weekend in photos!

I didn't take any pictures on Sunday, but you get the idea! Those would have pretty much been all of the Boston Terriers.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying some beautiful spring weather like we are!!

SPRING BREAK!

IMG_7988
I thought now that I entered the full time working world I wouldn't get a spring break, but as usual my job surprised me and here we are! Dr. Kyle went to Key West for a wedding and made a vacation out of it, so I get a few days off too :)

Unfortunately, I spent the first day of it sick. :( Today is day 3 of said illness and I am finally starting to feel like myself again. I think it was really just a 24 hour bug because that was definitely the worst part of it, but I still didn't feel 100% yesterday either. Today I still haven't felt hungry really, but at least I'm not nauseated anymore.

In fact, today I was pretty productive. I did laundry, dishes, steam mopped the floors, vacuumed, picked stuff up, and just really cleaned the house. It was going great until I ran out of laundry detergent! Oops :-/

Anyway. I have more to share (Easter, anyone?) but I'm working on a new website which I'll hopefully be able to share soon! AND I'm hungry finally, for the first time in like 3 days!

Be back soon.

 I got some sparkly Toms a few weeks ago.

This takes care of #25 on my list.

Several more are in the works and should be completed by my birthday! Including #12 but man, we are seriously the slowest DIY'ers ever.
