Raining cats and dogs

mutt strut

It was a wet day at the track for our fourth year attending the Mutt Strut. Despite the downpours, the event still raised over $370,000 (exceeding last year’s amount) to help the animals at the Indianapolis Humane Society. If you are considering adding a pet to your family, please remember to visit a humane society or shelter near you. There are so many loving pets in need of a good home!

Windy City Weekend


It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year and a half since our last trip to Chicago. We went last weekend to celebrate my birthday and were greeted by much warmer temps than our November visit in 2008. We took the typical tourist photos at “The Bean” in Millennium Park (shown above), walked down Navy Pier and had celebratory drinks at the top of Hancock Tower. Overall, a great birthday weekend.

Baja and Bulldogs

Mexico! March Madness! What a month it has been. The city of Indy has come to life the past few weeks as the Butler Bulldogs marched their way to the Championship Game. It’s been quite an experience to see Andy’s alma mater gain national attention not only for their athletics, but also for their academics.

We have also been back from La Paz, Mexico for a few weeks now. With just a touch of tourism, La Paz has a wonderful laid-back authentic atmosphere. We enjoyed daily trips down the Malecon, snorkeling with sea lions, dolphins and whale sharks, visiting nearby beaches and enjoying the friendly hospitality of the city.

It’s also that time of year that house renovations are back on the list of things to do. Stay tuned for photos of final stages of the kitchen remodel!
