Our Trip to Muncie!

This past weekend we spent our time at Ball State. I left school Friday afternoon and picked up Mackenzie on my way to Indianapolis to pick up Rick at the airport. We then made the rest of the trip to Muncie. I was asked to give the keynote speech at the NRHH Leadership Conference (an organization I was part of during college). It was quite an honor, but fairly stressful writing a 20 minute speech.
I had some technical difficulties in printing the speech and then getting the powerpoint up on the projector. I was fortunate that Rick was patient with me and got everything working perfectly!

Rick getting all of my technology working!

Getting things in order at the last minute.

The speech was supposed to be 20 minutes...I spoke for about 35...00ps!

Reading an excerpt from Horton Hears a Who

I spoke about Megan and the impact she and her passing has had on my life and what it can teach others about living in the moment and cherishing what life has to offer.

Maria was also part of my speech!

The newly renovated DeHority. It is hard to believe this is the same building I lived in my freshman year! We stayed in a suite there on Saturday night.

The main lobby in DeHority.

There are some awesome fish sculptures outside of Woodworth now. Of course we had to have our picture taken with them!

Making fish faces with the fish!

Mackenzie with the giant inflatable whale!

Mackenzie found some left over food in the Student Center.

Rick believes he can hear the babies heartbeat so he was listening!

Mackenzie's turn to listen.

After the conference and dinner we went to Puerto's for dessert and drinks. Here is Mackenzie's "jumbo" margarita!

We had a wonderful was busy and hectic but very nice nonetheless.

Week 15

Depending on which shot you look at you can see more of a bump this least I think so. I have had to buy some clothes that are more flexible (i.e. dresses, skirts, etc.).

Here are last week's pictures.

Week 13

I know I am slightly behind, but here are the pictures from week 13!

Labor Day with the Volbrecht's

Labor Day weekend started off with Puffer Fest (I didn't take any pictures though) and then continued in Wisconsin. We had dinner with Laura and Dave before continuing on to Milwaukee to visit with Adam, Taryn, and Khalil. Here are some pictures of our visit!

Khalil and Me!


You can see my fish tattoo from Puffer Fest!

Khalil had a bath on Sunday morning!

He loves the water...and being clean!

Taryn and can only kind of see, but he is wearing his new Chicago Bear's hat that we brought as a gift!
