Finishing up the Week

We are finishing up Steve's week off of work and we are exhausted, but that is only because we are having a blast.

We went to that Bats game on Wednesday.  It was a daytime game, at 11:45, so it got super hot.  Luckily we were in the shade under the awning.

No trip to the ballpark is complete without yummy food and Buddy Bat.

Thursday we went to Indiana Caverns for a cave tour. This is the one that also includes a boat ride inside the cave.

Always trying to learn something.

Since we were already in Corydon we made a quick trip to the battle park for a little more education.  The only Civil War battle spot fought in Indiana.

We all took naps this day, even Cooper. After complaining he didn't have anything to do, because Holiday World, an aquarium, swimming, baseball game, and cave tour isn't enough, he curled up next to me on the couch and fell asleep.

We took the kids bowling today, we haven't been in over 3 years.  That needs to change.  I forget how fun, and inexpensive, this can be.

For the record, Cooper beat me by one pin and I tied with Cameron.  I blame it on the fact that they got to use bumpers.

My kids aren't going to know what to do with themselves come Monday, I guess what every other kid does- entertain themselves.
Also a big shout out to Steve.  He has been working 2 jobs pretty consistently since the holidays. After his regular full time job he sees 2, sometimes 3, home health patients a week.  He sees each patient twice a week.  Then he also works some weekends at Southern Indiana Rehab. So I guess you would say some weeks he works 3 jobs.  None of this week would have been possible without that extra income.  It's a sacrifice for us all but we greatly appreciate it.

You guys did SO much fun stuff! I think that's awesome!
Corydon used to have a HUGE 4th of July celebration which included a Civil War battle reenactment. Men dressed in uniforms, rode horses & everything. It's been a long time since I've been there-it was nice seeing your picture!
