We arrived on Memorial Day - here we are sporting our patriotic colors :)
Story time with Auntie Bev!
On Tuesday, we went to the Indianapolis Zoo! My aunt has been bringing my family and I since we were little (it's always been one of our favorite memories of visiting Indiana each year!). Now the next generation is getting to make the same memories! :)
Checking out the rhino's with dad!
In front of the elephants
On the train ride (well it hadn't started yet...thus David's hot, tired, bored expression!)
David's first time on a carousel (riding the animal by himself!)
Checking out the dolphins before the dolphin show began
On Weds., we hit up the mall and ate lunch at Johnny Rockets!
"Gimme FRIES!!!!!!" (lol! David LOVES french fries!)
On Thursday, we went to the Children's Museum (ranked #1 in the world!)
It was so much fun seeing David interact and get involved in the different exhibits!
I know it's blurry, but can you get a load of this smile?!? My aunt snapped this picture at lunch, when I was playing with David and getting him to smile. It's so rare to get a truly HAPPY face from him on camera - so this picture is very special!
One of David's favorite activities at the museum was climbing up and down these stairs (which he did with no help from me - just a watchful eye!).
Ringing bells in the China exhibit
It was so special to get to spend Thursday evening with my cousin Jason and his kids, Augie and Emma in Bloomington, IN! I hadn't seen them in 8 years! Special night for sure!
After an amazing italian dinner, we got ice-cream :) Here is the ice-cream king himself, making quick work of his cone!
One of David's favorite things the whole week was playing out in Aunt Bev's backyard and on her deck! On friday, after a whole week of practice, he finally learned how to step off of the deck without any help (human or handrail)! This was a BIG accomplishment for him and he was QUITE proud of himself, as you can see!
"Hurray for MEEEE!"

What a special week we had!
