2010/245: Summer Road Trip, Part 4

The Indiana part of our trip required a slight change of plans. We had originally planned on arriving Monday and leaving Friday morning. Unfortunately Cameron didn’t know until literally the last minute (as in Saturday!) which days he would be able to take off work. Turned out his days off that week were Monday (and we lost most of the day with him because we were travelling) and Friday, and he was unable to switch them with someone else. So we just made the best of the time we had on Monday, and decided to stay an extra night and leave Saturday morning.
We also tried to get together with Amy, but because I didn’t know in advance which days we would be free, and her week was filling up fast with playdates and out-of-town guests, we couldn’t work anything out. But, there’s always next time, because we will be back (at some point!)

So on Tuesday, August 10, Nikki came up to the hotel around lunch time and we hung out at the hotel pool for a little while and then headed to the Albanese Candy Factory and did some sampling and shopping! You could say it’s become a tradition, since we’ve been there the last three times we were in Indiana! Of course we got plenty of chocolate, and the kids picked out their favorite flavors of gummy bears (btw. their gummies are the only ones that will NOT stick to braces!!)

Cameron came right after work and joined us for dinner. We also celebrated a certain little one’s birthday (a little early) that evening.

Wednesday, August 11 was pretty unevenful, although we did go to the mall for some baby clothes shopping, and when Cameron met up with us at the hotel after work, we all went to the Olive Garden for dinner.

  3. Mmmmmm…..candy! Something we have in common besides loving taking pictures and having folks comment on them! You’ve got two in braces at once? I feel bad for you – just one of our is, and it’s bad enough money-wise.

    • No, it’s just Melissa in braces, but Sara has stainless steel caps on some of her teeth, so she can’t have anything sticky either.
