Whew. Just got in the door from a week and a half out of town. Spent the first week with my family in Arizona; got to meet my new nephew Ethan and spend time with my parents and all but one of my siblings. Since then we have been in Indianapolis since Wednesday for Midwest Bearfest, which was awesome. We spent Thursday at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which we thought was fantastic; on Friday morning Ron sprained his ankle pretty badly as we walked in a very pedestrian-unfriendly area (i.e., Indy) but he soldiered through the weekend with the help of some ace bandages, ice, and a zillion cute bears asking if he was doing OK. We had a great time and hopefully will be able to afford to go back to Indy next year -- it was a mellow run and the prices for both airfare to Indy and the hotel cost were very reasonable.
