Road Trip

On the road again, but this time it was only a day trip. This time our destination was the Indianapolis Children's Museum, and we were not alone. Grandma Cathy, Stacey, Gwen and Brier ventured along with us. We had a full day of fun. The day started early--our house 8 a.m. We arrived in Indy in pouring rain and thankfully got to park in the Parking Garage. Here are some of the fun things we did:
Ubby dressed like a Dinosaur.

Grandma Cathy taking pictures. I think I see another scrapbook coming together.

Lunch--of course!! We like to pack our lunch--I felt a little crazy, however, we did have veggies and applesauce with our lunch--I didn't see many others eating fruits and veggies.

There is a new display called "Take Me There Egypt". This was a really neat place we could have stay in there for hours.

Lauren and me on the airplane to Egypt. Seriously they have a part of an airplane that you sit in and watch a 2 minute video. The seats actually move like you are in an airplane pretty cool!

Lauren in the dress up area. As you can see she is always ready to pose for the camera.

Logan all dressed up with no place to go!!!!!

Brier looking way to cool!!!

Now unless you have been there, you have no idea what they are doing. Most of you are thinking this group is a little strange, who knows what they are doing. But if you have been there you know that they are looking at this--from the bottom up!!!

Here is Gwen!! Saying cheese--

Another stunning shot of the group--note to the adults: Maybe next time we should pose for a picture. That way I have something better for the blog.

Boog on the the carousel--she asked all day to ride. When we finally made it to the top floor, you had to wait 20 minutes to ride. It was lots of fun!!

Here are all the kids in the Star Wars exhibit! You may have noticed that my favorite niece is missing from the pictures. Yes, we were very sad Bre was not able to join us. She is on a mission trip with her youth group. We hope that she is having a really great time. Pray that she makes it home safely.

We also saw the Planetarium--we were their in May and saw a different show. This time we saw Wonders of the Universe--I was really disappointed in this. It was totally Big Bang Theory. A real let down after being at the Creation Museum. And actually it was harder to see some of the things.However, the Magic Show was great, and if you are heading to Indy before July 31--this is a must see. It was a 1/2 hour show that was really neat.
It was a great time!! A very full day--we stopped in Muncie on the way home and ate and also took in a little shop (like we hadn't walked enough?). Great time was had by all.
As you can tell I like to plan things. What's next---I can't tell you--you'll have to keep checking in on us!!!
