And so, we packed up all the things and headed off on a five hour drive. Now that she can crawl and get around all by herself, she helped me do some of the packing.It was awful. If Z wasn't screaming, she was screaming louder. She only slept for an hour of the drive and that just about drove me crazy sitting in the backseat. I fed her via lean-over boob popout, but she wasn't happy about that either. I hate driving with this child. Impossible.
Once we arrived in Indy, we got a chance to do some super fun stuff. Played some D3, and went to the children's museum with Zelda.
|And this is all my stuff.|
My Uncle Linus made a great comment about babies, that they are like role-playing characters. They start out with base stats, like movement, attention and sleep, and level up whatever skill they are always using. Hence, Z doesn't sleep through the night, but she does crawl. Oh well. Can't win it all right?
Zelda love her great aunt and uncle, and she loved the museum! It took us super long to get there, an hour drive because we were in downtown Indy 500 parade traffic. But Zelda did ok on that drive.
|Stuck in traffic - but happy!|

Then we got a chance to come home have some nice dinner and play a few board games. First we played Arkham Horror (and kicked some serious Lovecraftian monster ass), then Forbidden Isle (which was hard) and then started on the Game of Thrones game - but gave up and played Shadows over Camelot (and lost to Sean who betrayed the Knights of the Round Table, what a jerk).
That's partly my favorite reason to visit Indy - the board games. They are always super obscure, and take a lot of brain power and co-op features. I also enjoyed being able to have my partner join in with us, since we never play board games besides D&D. I'm sad to pack up and go, but we have work tomorrow (time and a half, be jealous). So another five hour journey back to MI. Yay, not.
