I was hanging out after #Corporate Challenge volleyball to cheer on the cornhole team. Amazingly, free U2 tickets were being passed out. WTF?! I’m not a huge fan, but not a hater so yes I’ll take free tickets! Lucas Oil Stadium transformed for some music.
Once I started saying to peeps we are going to the show, everyone else was too! Let’s see it! They opened the Joshua Tree tour with power on the walk-about stage.
I was impressed with the lights. Sometimes, I’m just a little kid loving sparkles.
Captain Jack & his first mate have invited us to their lake house every year. This year, we finally made arrangements to spend some time on Lake Freeman. I was super excited until I got there to find this….
WTF. Not again. Is this really why you invited me there?! Of course I had to dig in when my puzzle gene took over. We didn’t get it finished, but I did get it to a place where the Labor Day crew would get it done. Hell, L started this in January! After they would drag me away from it, we got some Rummikub in! Had to teach the college kid this old school game.
We woke up to a beautiful blue sky and ready to take a boat ride! But not until my parents arrived! Always a blessing when they can join our festivities!
Great low and high bridge architecture to check out!
We had to make the tourist stop at the sand bar. Little different than I’m used to. People literally run their boats up into the sand bar. Anchors aren’t needed here!
But is a grill needed? Yes please! I don’t even like hot dogs, but the thought of a grilled dog from the boat? Count me in.
Come dinner time, we were ready for a hearty steak!
Great friends, great memories. And I’ll have this memory to laugh at forever!
Thanks to a Indy e-newsletter, I learned about a new obstacle course sponsored by the Colts and @Play60. And we can get there via the Monon and Canal Tow Path? Sign us up for a date day ride!
I had no idea how cool this would be (for an adult)! First we were greeted with a 40 yd dash.
You stand on the Colts Horseshoe and a timer starts. Sprint to the end to see how fast you are. There was 1 other family there with us, and they kept racing. So fun! Next was the obstacle course. You hit a start button and ready, set, go! Here’s me off in the distance.
CS brought out his inner Ninja Warrior on the floating plates and rope web.
We ran the course a few times. The GPS map I made wouldn’t let me zoom in like I wanted, so oh well. This installation also has a simple work out area to use.
Very very clever park. Please visit! Until next time, thanks @IndyParks!
With a new team this year (Previously), we needed a new name and new shirts to race the 2017 IndyQuest Adventure Race. Since CS has heard about the race every year, he said he was interested in racing. Hmmm. I thought… That might be a bad idea. So our team name was born, This Might Be A Bad Idea. My super gym-mate MH was on board. Alright we are doing this! Here is the selection I sent my team.
Of course, the $4.97 Snaccident shirt won. I even had to admit that it is pretty funny. After a long day of racing, we were pooped.
We were able to catch up with other racers sharing our experiences of the day.
Did you get that checkpoint? How long did it take you to do the puzzle? Are your clothes dry yet??
After food and bevs, we were a much happier team!
And even scored 2nd place in our division! Not too shabby for this group!
Happy to report the poison ivy was very contained this year. Phew. We’ll be back.
