On Them Indiana Nights

Last weekend my parents and I went to Evansville to see my brother! He’s lived there for three years now. Most of my visits have been in winter, which is a shame, because Indiana summers are delightful. When we arrived at his house, the weather was so pleasant that I would have done cartwheels all over his front lawn if I could.

Kevin actually lives in Newburgh, a historic small town on the Ohio River. The river walk is a short drive from his house.

We always make the most of the surprisingly great Evansville food scene. This time we hit up Turoni’s for pizza, Kanpai for sushi and trendiness, a Mexican place with a pond and bird sanctuary in the back, and a random ice cream stand with $2 cones and turtle sundaes. My dad, conoisseur of the basic vanilla cone, was thrilled.

Kevin is a lifelong archer and now works in the industry, so we usually have some target practice. My aim and form are getting better! Okay, I shot a few into the fence at first, but there were no injuries.


See, my dad wasn’t worried.

We also shot some hoops and played a round of Putt-Putt. My mom and I tied to win by one stroke.

It was a great way to spend Father’s Day weekend!
