Best Buddies 2009

We really like being able to support Best Buddies Indiana. They held a race last weekend along the Canal Walk in downtown Indianapolis last weekend. Beautiful weather and nice people!

Purdue Cancer Center Challenge 5k

Thanks to Jon and Christine for inviting us to Purdue Spring Fest yesterday. All the departments turned out and had family activities to showcase what they’re all about. We got to see Christine’s fancy lab equipment, sample different kinds of honey, watch a sheep being sheared, ride an accessible tractor, and more. A 5k race kicked off the festivities, touring parts of the campus and a bit of the countryside. And somehow it all managed to be uphill!

Zilker Zephyr

Monday afternoon during our visit with Grandma and Papa, we took a nice miniature train ride on the Zilker Zephyr with Grandma and Papa. The weather was beautiful in Texas. We rode past Barton Creek, Town Lake, and Zilker Park, whose soccer fields were under intensive rehabilitation. David pointed out the purple porta-potty, which was even more exciting than the huge digger next to it. There’s also an archaeology effort under way because a number of artifacts were found previously.

Creative hauling

Who would have thought that you can still take home a dozen shrubs from the nursery if you’re already towing a pair of jetskis? Proof!
