One of these days I would love to take my mother and great grandmother to the Indiana State Museum's L.S. Ayres Tea Room for tea and lunch (I love their Velvet Chicken Soup) or to an afternoon tea at the Indianapolis Propylaeum and end the day with a free garden tour of the expansive and beautiful Indianapolis Museum of Art's grounds. Sounds lovely doesn't it? One of these days...

But, this weekend...since we have a whole troupe coming down, instead of just the two, and since a slightly disagreeable teenage boy (my 16 year old brother) is part of the posse - I figure we should probably forgo the whole "tea & garden tour idea" and go for something a little more "cool" - lol.

So, I am hoping to have everyone meet us at our home - where I can introduce everyone to our lovely new garden of which I am so proud! And then, from there everyone can follow me downtown to Easley Winery where we will take the tour and then spend some time "Groovin' in the Garden" and enjoy lunch from Bazbeaux while listening to the Sugar Creek Band!

Nice list! My mom runs a little internship program at her work, and this might come in handy for those crazy college-aged interns. I'll be sharing it immediately.

And thanks for the note on my little blog. Isn't it crazy how this world sometimes overlaps with the real one outside our computers?

Kirsten - No problem. Matthew and I are always looking for things to do around Indy and making these posts allows us to keep track of all we want to do and keeps them all in one place so we don't forget. :)
