A Good Weekend

We had a fun weekend. We went to Indy for a wedding. We decided to go a day early and just get ready down there. Driving two and a half hours in my wedding clothes didn't thrill me. We stayed at Drury Inn and Suites. If you haven't stayed there before, I highly recommend it. For a very reasonable price, we got a great room. We had a better tv in our room than we have at home. You got free drinks and food in the evening from 5:30 to 7:00. It was actual "make a meal on it" food. In the morning, they had a full breakfast buffet. The hotel was only two years old. Very nice!
On the way down we passed the wind turbines near West Lafayette. There are these windmills for miles as far as you can see on both sides of I65. It was pretty neat.

The first night we were treated to a beautiful sunset out our hotel window.

Here we are at the wedding. We really had a great time.

Literally five minutes after we got home on Sunday, our daughter and son-in-law were in the driveway to pick us up for the Gary Air Show. My son-in-law's grandpa has a house right on the beach, so it's the perfect place to watch the show. It is amazing to watch. How these people ever think up some of the stunts is incredible. We had a great time here too.

One thing I learned this weekend is how truly awesome my new camera is. With the telephoto lens and some editing, I got some amazing shots. At least I think so.

So that's the weekend. I have a ton more pictures, but I didn't want to bore you.


  1. OMG I love your pictures. What a fantastic sounding weekend you had. I wanted to drive over to the riverwalk to watch the airshow but my hubby thought it would be way too crowded. You and your hubby look so happy. You never bore me with your pictures! Keep them coming.

  2. Great picture of you and your favorite man! My niece worked for Drury Inn in Columbus and just was transfered to Kansas Drury, where her fiance lives! They are a great value for sure! We enjoy her discount whenever we can! Have a great week!

  3. Bring on those pictures! If they're anything like the ones you're showing here, there's no chance of anyone being bored.
    I'm glad your weekend turned out so well and that you had a good time. Your story about Drury Inn reminded me that we stayed in one in St. Louis with Dan's family a few years ago on one of their moves. Same as your's. It was awesome!

  4. oh you look soo happy! great shot!

  5. You could never bore me with your photos! These are spectacular! The sun, the planes... YOU TWO! I love weekends like this one! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  6. Those shots are amazing! I love the second to last one.

  7. Aw! Love the one of you two having fun dancing! And the airshow shots are pretty amazing! I love watching what they can do with their airplanes! The last one looks like they are going straight down!

    Blessings & Aloha!
