We arrived in Indiana Wednesday night and were welcomed by VABeau's parents and siblings, chili and cornbread, and the fire pit.
Thursday morning brought a short run for me followed by bloody mary bar preparations.
My mother-in-law always likes to have a project to keep everyone busy while the dishes are cleaned. So the teacher in the family, CAWife, lead everyone in the creation of pine cone turkeys.
I made a UVA turkey in hopes that it would bring our Hoos luck on Saturday against VATech. Unfortunately, no amount of luck could have helped them in that awful awful game :(
Friday brought Ball State Football for the boys and spinning class for the girls followed by fondue for dinner. Fondue nights are quickly becoming a tradition with this family. It was the perfect post-Thanksgiving meal and made for a fun night together.
Sunday we all made the trip to Indianapolis for the Colts/Panthers game. Our first stop was Kilroy's for a beer.
We left the game and immediately headed to the airport where we said our goodbyes and made our way back to DC. I'm so grateful that we were able to squeeze in a lot of fun and family time in 4 short days and can't thank my in-laws enough for hosting/entertaining us the whole time!
