30 Hours {of Fun!!}

Earlier this month, Miss L and I had the great fortune of flying to Indy for exactly 30 hours to visit dear friends.

I've really lost track of the exact # of flights this little girl has been on, but I'm pertty sure it was her 13th or 14th flight. Considering we had major malfunction which required us to deplane, wait in the airport for 2 more hours, and reboard a new plane...she was a trooper! She really is a jet setter.

Our last visit to Indy occured in October, when dear friends of ours threw us a fabulous baby shower-welcome Miss L party! Since then, we have welcomed the following babies to our "group" : Ethan P, Bryn, Ella, and AJ. This new "crop" of babies are mostly the siblings of some of her existing friends, Oliver, Madilyn, Zach, Josie, Ashley, Evan, Ethan W and Stevie.

The excitement began once we landed at IND. I remember attending the private grand opening dinner party there prior to the opening {with Jeremy's job}...it still as beautiful as I remember. Then, off to see some "Hertz family members" and dashed off in our rental car to the northern suburbs. I knew exactly when I entered Hamilton County...as I was greeted with endless roundabouts, nice and new, asethically-pleasing brick-everything, lush and perfectly manicured medians and one beautiful neighborhood after another. Hello, again!

We were greeted with the most genuine "Hoosier Hospitality" as we checked in at "The W."

Meeting cutie pie Ethan P for the 1st time!
Then, we zipped off to fun-filled playdate at another "W" ...where my friend Allison whipped up delicious snacks for us as she is and has always been the Hostess with the Mostess. Here are some of our friends:

Having fun with Josie, who is going to be a big sister soon

Meeting handsome lil AJ for the 1st time!
Thanks again Allison for hosting everyone...you truly are the best!

Following the playdate, we had dinner at local delicious-hot spot, Petite Chou by Patachou, with friends Cindy (mom and Madilyn, and baby #2 due in Aug) and Cori and her lil' Prince Ethan.

The next morning, we woke up early and had breakfast with my former coworker Chelsie at Paradise Bakery...and Miss L was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as if SHE was drinking coffee, herself!

We had more play time with Prince Ethan at his palace...er, I mean toy room! Thankfully at 8 and 10 months respectively, sharing is not an issue {yet!}

Then, off to more time with friends, back in our former neighborhood...where we were able to play with Ella, Oliver, Zach, Stevie and Bryn.

I think Miss L enjoyed her visit to Indy!
Fun was had by all! Albeit a little bittersweet, making me wish we still lived there...I am thankful we had the opportunity for this quick, impromptu, fun-filled adventure!!
