Mommy & Evelyn's Weekend of Fun (with Daddy in Indiana)

For Dan's birthday, I surprised him with a plane ticket to Indianapolis to visit his family.  This weekend was his Mom and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary, and his brothers/sisters were throwing a party in their honor.  He decided to keep the trip a surprise from everyone but his brother, Mike, as well.  He left Corpus at about 5:30am on Saturday morning, landing him in Indy in the late morning.  Mike and Kendra picked him up at the airport and transported him to the party.
Brothers don't shake hands...brothers gotta hug!
While he was gone, Evelyn and I flew solo with a weekend of fun.  We started Saturday off with donuts at the donut shop, then - with help from a friend here - went and got Dan's car from the airport parking lot so we could surprise him by picking him up when he flew back in on Monday.
This was taken after naptime...and I see so much of myself in it, it's crazy!
I think my Mom even has a picture very similar to this in an album somewhere...
We read books...
And took pictures with Mommy's phone...
While Daddy spent time with cousin Micah watching videos of Evelyn...
We went to church on Sunday...
While Daddy played at the park with cousin Micah...
...and Uncle Mike...
On Sunday, I surprised Dan with one more surprise...tickets to the Pacers first playoff game against Atlanta!  He took his Dad to the game with him.
Here they are at Banker's Life Fieldhouse...
Evelyn and I cheered from Texas
We also played outside.  
Apparently when Mommy says, "Evelyn, don't climb in the sand table"...
It means climb in the sand table!
Evelyn and I missed Daddy a lot, but we had a fun weekend with just the girls.  I'm so glad that Dan was able to spend the time with his family and celebrate with his parents.  We surprised him on Monday evening by showing up at the airport to pick him up.  He nearly missed Evelyn running towards him because he wasn't expecting us!  I wish I had a video of that whole meeting...I was bawling.  I love to see the love between those two!
