Today we went to Broad Ripple, got bagels at Broad Ripple Bagel Company and then biked north. We'd heard that 116th Street had some good shops and restaurant area to check out. It turned out being at aroudn 131st Street.
My brother, David and his girlfriend, Amy met us up there and we enjoyed a patio table at Muldoon's. While the food was not anything to talk about, it was a nice place to sit, eat, drink and chat while the kids played closeby without pissing anyone off.
On the way home we stopped at the Broad Ripple Art Center Nature area. It was partially wooded , and had small flower garden areas, lookout decks over the creek and large art installations at every angle. We ended stone walking out into the middle of a wide creek. Marshall LOVED it! Besides hanging with Dave and Amy, it was the best part of our day. We vowed to go back soon.
