McKinney Boot Camp

We visited the McKinneys for the week of Thanksgiving in Virginia near Blacksburg. The day before Thanksgiving we also were there for pie fest. Everyone had a great time. Austin learned how to climb down the stairs and fend for himself better with other kids. They also took us shooting so we all had a chance to shoot a 22 rifle, 9mm pistol, 30-06 rifle, 16 gauge shotgun among others. Rick and Jeff also tiled two entry ways while we were there.

Indianapolis Zoo

Two of my high school friend came to visit me the second week of November. I was so excited for them to come. When we picked them up from the airport we went to the Indianapolis Zoo. Austin really liked the animals. They had a dolphin show and it was really neat to be able to walk around the zoo when it was practically empty. They had a shark petting tank. I think that was Austin's favorite part. I don't know if he liked touching the water or sharks better. We also took a trip to Chicago but my camera batteries died as soon as we got into the city so I don't have many pictures. It was a really good visit and I was sad to see them leave. Thankfully I'm only 12 hours away so I'll be able to see them again in December. Thanks Steph and Sarah!
