"Mini" Vacation

We decided to take a mini vacation to a far away place--Indianapolis!(45 min. away)
I went on pricelineand got a great deal at the Radisson downtown. It was half the price they were asking. We left Friday night and just got back today (Sun.afternoon)
We had alot of fun. We went to the Imax which was playing the 3D shark movie, we rented paddle boats and a kayak and rode down the canal. The canal is a really neat place for those of you not familiar with Indianapolis. It is right downtown in between buildings etc. The weather was beautiful and we got to walk around downtown and of course had good food. The worst part of the trip was Jaida having to go to ER with poison ivy alllll over her face!! Poor thing--she went to bed Fri. night with a puffy eye and by Sat. morning looked like an alien. Her forhead was swollen and her eye was swollen shut. So--Jaida and I got to spend some quality time together at St. Vincent hospital. They gave her steroids and the redness had gone some before we left. Well--back home and back to reality! I need to go unpack. Now the true fun begins! Oh, I forgot to take my camera--grrr--so I had to use my cell phone. Now I have to figure out how to get the pictures off of it.. I can hear all the snickering from you electronic pros!:) I'll post pictures as soon as I can!

Oooh! I can feel for poor Jaida!! (shivers at the thought of poison ivy)

yes, I felt the need to explain to alot of people downtown Indianpapolis that she had poison ivy. I'm thinking some people probably thought we had beaten her or something. I told Janae it is a good thing it was Jaida instead of her cause she wouldn't have left the motel. Jaida is too little to let it bother her!

Poison ivy on the face is NOT pretty. Makes me cringe just thinking of it. My Janae cringes too and will sympathize right along with Jaida.
