Celebrating at Bella Vita on Geist Marina

The Hoagland Family at Belle VitaSeptember 10, 2009 was a special day at our house.  It was Louise Hoagland's birthday! (I won't say which birthday, she is my mother-in-law after all!)  Our family gathered at one of our favorite spots in Indianapolis, Bella Vita, to celebrate!  Yes, every now and then we venture out of Greenwood

We had a great table outside on the patio overlooking Geist Marina.  You never know what the weather will be like in Indiana, but we were fortunate -- it was a perfect!

The sun setting on the boats was a lovely view, but it was even more enjoyable as darkness fell, the live music began and the soft lights set a magical atmosphere!  If you closed your eyes, it was almost Sanibel Island! (One of our favorite places to vacation when we leave Indiana!)
