August 8th was Ryan's birthday. Since it's also his brother Ezra's birthday, we drove up to Lafayette, Indiana, where Ezra lives, to spend some time celebrating with his family. Ryan lived in Lafayette when he went to Purdue, so it's nice to see the town with him; he points out places he used to live or work or hang out.
We drove up on the 8th, spend some time at a small water park, went out for barbecue, and had birthday cake around a fire pit at the campground where Ryan's parents were staying. Then we spent the night (in a hotel) and drove back the next day, getting home just in time to have a great dinner with my brother and his wife, which served as makeshift combination celebration of them getting a babysitter, Ryan's birthday, and a promotion I just got at work.
