back to B-town for an IU visit!

This past weekend we made the trip back to Bloomington, IN where Chad and I both went to grad. school. It was Chad's 5 year reunion for his MBA class and several of the couples we keep in touch with were also going to be there. AND--my roommate from Baylor and her family lives there too--so we made plans to see them too! The road trip was awesome---no problems, whatsoever. We even made the entire 8 hours there without a DVD for Luke! Hooray!

We had such a fun weekend! It was a whirlwind, considering we arrived Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning. However, it was totally worth it! We were able to drive around campus showing the boys--well Lukey, anyway, how beautiful Indiana University is. We ate at some of our favorite restaurants and most importantly we spent time catching up with our friends. All of us have had 2 or more kiddos since we left IU and we haven't been together since. So, this weekend all of the kids got to meet and play too! One night, the guys headed out to a dinner and the girls stayed in one of the hotel rooms with the kids. It was a blast. The kids colored, played with stickers, jumped on the beds, watched a movie, ate pizza, etc. The other night, the guys were on kid duty and the girls caught up over cocktails and cookies! I wish we all lived closer so we could get together more often, but I'm really thankful for this IU weekend! Jill, Heather and Sarah--we missed you!

Chad and the boys in front of the IU Business School. Future graduates??

Bloomington girlfriends!

All the kiddos--except Charlie--who was sound asleep!

Morgan and Charlie--they make a cute pair, don't you think?

Lauryn and Luke---adorable!! My dear friend and roomie from Baylor has girls the same age as Luke and Charlie. This weekend was the first time we were able to meet them---it was too short, but so sweet!!

Looks like you had fun! I can't believe you had all of those kids in ONE hotel room!
