This Mother's Day weekend, T, Aubrey and I decided to have a little adventure in downtown Indy...we had wanted to do this on my birthday weekend, but the rain and 50 degree temperature at the end of April (ugh) kind of ruined that for us.  But hey, the Saturday before Mother's Day was perfect - sunny, 70 degrees...we had to take advantage of it.  Aubrey was pretty stoked about it.

We went to lunch at RAM Brewery, enjoyed a delicious lunch, some cold brews and of course...dessert!  After gorging ourselves, we decided to walk it off on the canal.  I'll be honest, part of the reason for the walk, too, was to push our daughter into a nap.  She was quite excited with everything going on around here.  It was successful, and she got a good nap in. 

That didn't stop Mommy from taking advantage of a photo opportunity.

Or Daddy from joining in on the fun...notice that she didn't budge.

Saturday was so great, too, because she was in such a happy mood.  She hasn't really "laughed" yet, but she grins with her whole face.  And she also decided this weekend that she just loved her little monkey doll.  She got a good grip on it, and I swear, it looked like she would hug her.  So precious.  We did manage to capture one of those wonderful smiles.  It's impossible to look at this picture and not get a smile on your own face, isn't it?

She loves her monkey friend.  It was a pretty exhausting trip.  Someone was down for the count by the end of the day.

It was a wonderful day downtown, fun had by all three of us. We can't wait to come back for more!


  1. So precious! I'm glad you made good memories for your first Mother's Day. Maybe you've started a tradition. ;)

    That precious smiling face is absolutely adorable and yes indeed, I looked at that picture and broke into a great big silly grin. I don't know if this will make Aubrey laugh out loud or not but it might be worth a girl thought crinkling paper was the greatest thing in the world! The first time she laughed hard, out loud, was at the doctor's. The nurse put her hand on the torn end of the paper and crinkled it up to her. My girl laughed so hard and so loud. It was great. From that point she laughed every time she heard paper crinkle or tear.

  2. Such sweet pictures!!
    I love it!!
    What color is Aubrey's hair??

  3. Either you have good timing, or that child smiles a LOT! Not that I blame her, it looks like she has a very happy family and knows it.
