Super Bowl XLVI

I'm sure everyone knows by now that the Super Bowl is in Indianapolis this year. I was really excited, but then the thought of taking the baby out in the middle of winter sort of made me cringe. As luck would have it, it's actually been in the 50's and 60's this week so we were able to go! He didn't even really need to be bundled up too much either. :) Brad has to work all week and I'm still not that comfortable taking Cam out past dark (aka his bed time), so I went with a friend from a support group and her daughter.

As you can see, it was a gorgeous day. It wasn't too sunny and it wasn't gloomy either. PERFECT WEATHER! It was also a whopping 61°F which is close to a record high in January for Indiana. We both wanted to get out of the house and this was a great place to do it.

The kiddo's had fun, too! They got to see everything from their stroller (best seats in the house) and cuddle up with mom at Starbucks at the end of the day. :) They were loving the weather!

We walked around for a while and I took lots of pictures being the tourist-in-my-own-city that I am. I think the zip line had to be the neatest thing I'd seen. What a great idea! Whoever thought of it should get a raise.

Unfortunately you have to get in line at least an hour before they sell tickets for the day at 10:00 am and even then the wait to get on the zip line is still about 4 hours. With Cam, I don't have that kind of time. I really would've loved to do it though.

Camden was fantastic the entire day and even though he won't remember any of it, I think it will be neat to show his friends as he gets older. Not too fast, though, buddy.

At the end of the day as we were heading back to the car, it became extremely windy very fast so we quickly snapped a picture with Elmo and left downtown.

It was a great experience and we had fun just walking around talking. I'd like to do more walks with my friends, but I get the feeling that the weather probably won't cooperate again until April.


  1. Ok, 1, love the pictures, 2, yes I wish I could've done the zipline too! and 3, how do you get the tabs across the top of your blog? i want an about us section. and 4, we need to go to la hacienda! asap! :) love that place. oh, and 5, when will we see you soon??

    1. Not sure why I just saw this.. but I can help you with the tab thing I think. On the home page, click "Edit Posts" then click on the "Design" tab at the top. Then you can move things around and if you click "Add a gadget" on that top bar, then you can add "PAGES" and that is how I did it. After that you can make new pages and add them to the list.
      And Hacienda YES PLEASE!! ASAP!!
