Daysailing and Hiking

We finally got Gary and Deb to visit us on the water, instead of the dock. I think I've convinced Debbie that Gary needs a sailboat, but poor Gary's going to have to work some OT to get the boat she wants! It must have been the Titanic moment on the bow that convinced her ;) We did some hiking and wine tasting over the weekend. Chimney bluffs was a tiring hike, and I really am not going to stand on the edge of the bluff any more. When we got below, and looked up, I only saw grassroots under the ledge we were standing on! Yikes. If you ever get the chance to hike the bluffs, do it. Beautiful scenery. We stopped at the Thorpe Vineyard for some wine tasting, and some good stories from the server. We bought a few bottles, and will be back. Why we waited so long to go there, I don't know. Kelly bonded with us again, and hiked the bluffs. She needs to re-examine her choice of footware.

Sweaty Indiana

I just love that ten hour drive to Indy! It really does suck, but it's worth it when I get to see my baby girl! It was great to see Nic again. She hasn't changed much, which is good. Purdue life has not corrupted her that much. Though bubble water does not seem to be the problem it used to be. I think I lost ten pounds this trip, by sweating all over West Lafayette. I bet I smelled great. Wish we could have spent more time with the roomies parents, but that will have to wait for gameday. Mmmm, I can taste the chicken soup already. WAIT....I'm a vegetarian...damn it. Nicole, ask Sarah's mom if she can make minestrone instead :) Had a good time at Scotty's. The beer was fine and tasty. I even brought a little Molson to share with those midwesterners. We moved everything across the street. Not as easy as it sounds. Three shirts later, and we got it all done. Nic seemed to be done with us at that point, so we went back north with sad faces. We really miss the Snirk around here. See you in October. Game Day. Boiler up Baby!
