How'd it get to be Wednesday?

Man, this week has gone fast. Not that I am complaining because I am certainly looking forward to the weekend, but I just can't believe how the week has flown by.

We had an awesome Fourth of July weekend. Nate's parents came up from Charlotte to spend the weekend. It was the first time his mom had visited us in Indy (his dad came for a night right after we got here). They made the long drive up on Thursday and left Sunday morning.

Friday was a little overcast and cool, but turned out nice by the evening. We took his parents out to see the house but not much had changed since our last visit. The basement looked more like a kiddie pool after all of the rain!

Friday night we went to Symphony on the Prairie at Conner Prairie. Conner Prairie is a living history museum not very far from our apartment. They have an open-air summer concert series most weekend evenings, with different themes every weekend. Fourth of July was, of course, a patriotic theme. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra played about twenty patriotic songs and ended with a big fireworks display. And an unexpected side benefit was that we could see several other fireworks displays from around Indy during the concert.

This picture is for Buster - Nate enjoying his turkey leg!

Enjoying the symphony.

On Saturday we went downtown to do a little shopping and visit the car show. It was a nice day to be outside and we enjoyed walking around downtown.

And in between it all, we played a LOT of Wii. Sadly, both of his parents are better at it than me, even though they get to play like twice a year. I never seem to get any better at it; must be a side effect of growing up in a family of all girls.

Only 18 more days until vacation.
