While Mom was Pre-occupied

I was busy Saturday celebrating a 'baby sprinkle' with friends. Jeremy took the opportunity to foster brainwash Addy & Lilly's love for Indiana University with adventures in Bloomington. He packed healthy lunches bought them hot-dogs, popcorn, candy and milkshakes and kept hand-sanitizer close at all times let them play in the dirt. He kept them scheduled let them skip naps. He took pictures with our fancy Nikon his blackberry and handled the girls gloriously by himself all day only called in a few reinforcements.

I knew they'd had fun when they asked me this morning when I was going to go with them to "the mecca".

What a super blog and tribute to a great father! Note the monkey in photo five,Addy carried him around all Sunday morning.They had obviously had a wonderful day and could not stop talking about it on Sunday.The milkshakes seemed to have been a huge hit!The day had given them an appetite because at the Pancake House they both consumed large breakfasts following church and Addy announced she had made a sandwich consisting of bacon, topped with bacon topped with two more slices of bacon----something I believe her father would enjoy!! ga ga Ian

This was one of my favorite Saturday's I've spent with my girls ever. Let's just say we will be making many trips to this beatiful campus in the way or the other. ;)

I have big plans to take them camping this summer along the banks of the Lake Monroe.
