Sometimes I forget how much I love the changing seasons, until suddenly the air conditioning is off, the windows are wide open, I’m wearing capris, and I’m craving apple cider from Beasley’s Orchard. Of course, we live in Indiana where our motto is, “Don’t like the weather? Wait a day or two, it’s bound to change”, because our taste of fall is now quickly forgotten highs in the upper 80’s once again. Regardless, fall is just around the corner.
Brad and I were able to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous fall-like weather on Friday with a trip to my old stomping grounds, Butler University
. Like most alumni, I have a great pride in my Alma Mater. It’s such a beautiful, historic campus that holds many great memories, and now a new fond memory.
We took a giant walk along the canal. I’ve noticed that my stamina and strength is still increasing since my months of bed rest, for which I am quite grateful. I can’t wait until the boys are old enough to get excited about all the wildlife we saw. I could picture them with grins on their faces shouting, “Daddy, Daddy, look at that turtle!” We also took pictures at Holcomb Gardens – aren’t the flowers and grass a great backdrop? I love God’s creation and beauty! Sometimes we are reluctant to take group pictures, since it’s while an ordeal to take 4 happy babies out of their strollers and arrange them without stress, but I’m so glad that we went for it
this time. Even though they aren’t picture perfect, it’s just fun and natural! Our day ended with some Starbucks
Green Tea. I might add, Butler Starbucks was the first Starbucks in Indiana. There’s some trivia for you.
It was great to be back on campus. My how things have changed in the 5 years since graduation!
As for the suprise, I haven’t forgotten. I just need to download some pictures.
