Holiday Family Fun with Jingle Rails at the Eiteljorg

This weekend we were invited to the opening of the Jingle Rails exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis.

He probably could have spent all day watching all of the … [Read more...]

Our New Adventure- Columbus


So I've mentioned a few times that we were moving- but what I didn't mention is WHERE we were going. Because of my Hubby's job, we were asked if we would like to transfer, and we said yes.

We live in Indiana, so there are not lots of adventurous places to visit, but we made our own little adventure. We grabbed a days worth of toddler … [Read more...]
