Our family had a very different vacation this year (or "staycation" as Kimberly pointed out!). We stayed home for the biggest part of it, doing fun stuff around here. Sticking it in the eye of oil companies, as it were. I'm sure they were devastated. :) We did leave for a short weekend trip to Indy where we spent time with G-Pa and Nana, as well as provided a service of music in their Sunday worship service. God really helped us with that, and we feel that we received a blessing as well as provided one. Before we did that, we had "Family Fun Splash Day" in our own back yard. Our kids are still the age that if you give anything a title and dance around saying "YAY!" about it they think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. We even have "Family Goes to Dentist Day!" and believe it or not it works. :) As a matter of fact, we did that last week too. Our kids have an AWESOME dentist that they are always very excited about going to. Anyway, I digress. The pics are basically in order. One pic of "splash day", on to Indy, Newport Aquarium on the way home (which I highly recommend to anyone who gets a chance to go), and then our local Japanese restaurant which we really love. Enjoy the pics!
