5-30-2019 Concert on the Canal

On a Thursday evening we hopped on the Monon Trail with our friends, Mark and Annette, and headed downtown.

Near downtown the Monon Trail hooks up with the Cultural Trail.

We took that over to the Canal Walk.

We sat along the Canal and enjoyed a free concert hosted by the Indiana History Center. It is part of their summer concert
series called Concerts on the Canal.

The performer was Jessie Brown, playing country, rock and soul.

The skies looked ominous, but it never did rain on us.

Taking a different route on our bike ride home.

Again, ominous skies, but it did not rain on us.  :)

5-27-2019 Annette's Birthday Party

Our friends, Mark and Annette, had a big party at their house for Annette's 50th birthday. (This is not her in the photo, lol -
that is Cara's mother.)

They even hired a band that played Caribbean music - Kenny Kipp's Island Party.

There were a few brief showers, but for the most part it was good weather.

Annette leading the conga line!

Lots of eating, drinking and dancing - it was a great time!

Several games of bocce ball were played.

Neighbor, Tim, in his race attire - he is a big fan of the Indy 500.

5-25 and 5-26-219 Indy Biking with Friends

When we are in Indianapolis, we like to do a lot of long bike rides with our friends, Mark and Annette. Sometimes their children join us as well, and these bike rides are generally much shorter.

Saturday, May 25th - Monon Trail

This time we went down to the Fall Creek Parkway Trail and took it over to the Monon Trail.

On the Monon Trail we headed north into the Broad Ripple neighborhood.

The artwork along the trail is a nice touch.

Biking/walking bridge over Fall Creek.

Sunday, May 26th - Ft. Harrison State Park

This time we went the other direction on the Fall Creek Parkway Trail and headed out to Ft. Harrison State Park.

Entering Ft Harrison State Park.

Rest stop by a pond on our way around a larger lake.

Back on the Fall Creek Parkway Trail, headed home...

5-23-2019 Nephew's Baseball Game

While in southern Indiana visiting Eric's family, we were able to go watch one of our nephew's baseball games.

Nephew Jake in the outfield.

Haubstadt has really nice ball fields.

At this game our niece, Jenna, kept score, while Eric's brother, Greg, announced the players at bat.

Our nephew's team won the game! Woohoo!

5-15-2019 We Return to the States

View from our "hopper" flight from Dangriga to Belize City, Belize.

Boarding our flight to the States.

The flight wasn't very full, so we were able to spread out. We each had our own whole row, so
we could lie down and take naps.

Views on the flight from Belize City to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida...

Approaching Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Our flight was delayed a half hour due to rain.

Views from the plane on our flight from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Indianapolis, Indiana.

Approaching Indianapolis - hello again!
