Sunday morning we checked out of our hotel and then headed to church with Bryon and Kari's family. Our family (6 additional adults) almost doubled their branch! After church we headed back to Byron and Kari's to hang out until we could go to the house we were renting for the rest of the week!
We stayed at the Dogwood Springs Guesthouse and it was AMAZING!! This house was huge! We had a private lake to play on, a fire pit, a golf cart to explore in, a pool table and so much more. It was a pretty awesome house!
While there we headed to Indianapolis to visit the Indianapolis Speedway. That was honestly pretty cool. In the museum they had the winning cars from the last 100 years of the Indy 500. The winner in 1911 won the race going an average of 70 mph and the winner in 2011 won going an average of 170 mph! I thought that was crazy! We were also able to do a lap on the race track itself! That was pretty cool.
Another outing we did was to Cataract Falls, Indiana's largest waterfalls. Umm... lets just say they weren't very impressive, but that happens during a drought.
We spent a lot of time out on the lake. There was a paddle boat, a row boat, and a floating dock. Shaun and Tom (brother) bought radio controlled boats that they spent a lot of time racing! It was fun to watch them.
All in all it was a great vacation! I can't wait for the next one!
Picture time!! (Thanks Tom & Chelsea for letting me steal a few of your pictures)
