Way back in October, I had the idea to get Eric March Madness tickets for a combined birthday and Christmas surprise. For those of you who don't know, March Madness + Eric = MUCH HAPPINESS! I did the research, and decided that Indianapolis made the most sense for us. True, tickets to the Final Four in Detroit would also have been exciting (and arguably even better), but I wasn't willing to sell a kidney to make that happen. Instead, we would watch two sweet sixteen games on a Friday night, and spend a little time exploring a new city that was only about a four hour drive away. Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Plantinga, who agreed to watch Emily, we were able to embark on our Indy adventure this past weekend. What a treasure to spend so much quality time together! We both remarked on the way home that we had forgotten (just a little) how much we truly enjoyed one another.
Here are a few pictures from our time in Indy:
