Back at the end of last year Shawn bought us tickets to go to the Illusionist's Tour that was coming to the Old National Bank Centre in Indianapolis. The Illusionist Tour is a group of illusionists that were on America's Got Talent but didn't make it through to the end and they formed their own show. Shawn really likes watching this stuff and I find it interesting too, however there was a couple acts that completely grossed me out!!
They didn't allow photography inside the theatre while the show was going on, so I didn't get any pictures like I had wanted too. I did get a picture of the stage from our seats and then a couple pictures of us during intermission and before the show.
After the show we drove over to Terre Haute to visit our friends Wendie and Pedro who recently moved to Terre Haute from Nashville, Tennessee and see their super cute new house and to have dinner. The restaurant we had dinner at has seemed to skip my mind, but it was a mom and pop place and definitely delicious and must to revisit the next time we are in the area.
It was my first time traveling north and to Indy and Terre Haute, however it was such a whirlwind trip and there was so much travel time that there wasn't any time for photography stops :(
The weather on Saturday was exceptional and I was itching to get out and use my new camera lens! Shawn and I headed north to Pike County and drove around the Patoka River Wildlife Management Area. While the drive didn't go exactly as I had planned, we had a great time and had great weather. I definitely have this place on my list of places to go in the spring when all of the wildflowers are in bloom, and then again in the fall when all of the leaves are changing.
We also spent the morning at breakfast at the Rose Hill Cafe and then buying Gavin a new bed for his room at our house.
The Rose Hill Cafe is a mom and pop family restaurant that's practically been in our backyard for the last five year and we didn't know it. Shawn went there once a couple months ago with a friend and said it was really good. I've been wanting to go, but we hadn't had the opportunity until Saturday morning. It was definitely delicious and we'll definitely be going back. I had scramble eggs, sausage, German fries, and a piece of caramel apple french toast (oh so yummy!!), and Shawn had a made-to-order breakfast scramble and a chocolate chip pancake.
After breakfast, we ran over to Mark's Mattress Outlet and got Gavin's new bed. That situation deserves it's own blog entry, so check back soon for that!
