Sunday was spent at the Indianapolis Zoo and Gardens.
The day started out sunny, smiley, and full of spunk.

Could we BE any more Hoosier?

Though I’m originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!), I certainly feel like a true-blue, native, corn-fed Hoosier.

An outsider would most certainly agree.  Especially after witnessing the events of our past week. 

Let’s just say that there were copious amounts of animals and farms mixed in with some corn and blue skies, and you’ll understand.

It started with the Indianapolis Zoo

What?  You were expecting a picture of ME being a piggy?  Sorry, that happened too, but it wasn’t pretty, and I won’t allow such a picture for your viewing torture here.

You can't get much more "Hoosier" than that
If that doesn’t scream “Hoosier” then I don’t know what does.

P.S.  I think Cal’s last day went out on a great note.
