Sara, Lleyton, and I jumped in the car on Saturday afternoon and ventured up to Indianapolis to visit with Lleyton's friend from Russia, Roman, and his family. We all met at the Children's Museum and let the little boys run wild for an hour or so. Lleyton really seemed to enjoy himself.
One revelation we had while at the museum was that Lleyton may have a future in football. Although very slight, he is quite impressive when running through traffic without getting knocked down, almost Barry Sanders like. He sees a hole and he hits it without thinking too much. He has great instincts.
After enjoying Lego Land and the carousel and the hall of mirrors, we had had about enough so we hopped in the car and headed back to Roman's house. While the little boys played, the parents enjoyed reminiscing about days past in Russia and we even enjoyed a couple Russian beers. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the Baltika #3. I remember enjoying it in Russia, but I figured that was because it was the only option that I had. Not true, as it is a tasty treat even a half a world away.
It is nice to have Roman and his family so close. Those two little boys share a pretty cool story, having come from the same orphanage in Russia, and both making the trip around the world and ending up so close to each other. We are planning on getting these little guys together more often.
Here are a few pics of the little guys hanging out together.
