Tuesday, Rylan had preschool and Holden said he did not want to do much except his one request was to go get donuts after we dropped Rylan off. His request was granted and we basically just played at home most of the day. Again, no pictures!
However, Wednesday, we were off and adventuring. This time to Indianapolis, Indiana. Indianapolis is a little less than 2 hours from our house and such an easy drive. We were off to see the largest Children's Museum. We planned to get there when they opened at 10:00 but after stopping for a bathroom break it was a little closer to 10:30 before we got there. And when we drove up, the boys were screaming with excitement. Just look at the building!
There are dinosaurs climbing into the museum. We knew then we were in for a great day.
While we were buying tickets we heard someone yelling, "HOLDEN, HOLDEN" We started looking around and all of a sudden a little girl comes running up. It is his friend Lainey from school. What are the chance! They were both excited and ready to see the museum. First stop...LEGO'S!
I am sure the boys could have stayed here all day but we had 4 floors to explore. Next, we took a flight to Egypt. While in Egypt we experience some of their customs.
Next up before lunch, Mr. Potato Head. There was so much to do here, you could build,
go to outer space,
there were slides, and lots and lots of potato heads displayed. I am sure you can guess their favorite...
After lunch, we saw the Dinosaurs!
The boys were able to dig for fossils too.
Besides the Lego's exhibit, I think their next favorite exhibit was the Science Works. There was construction, digging, water, and did I mention construction?
They loved being "Worker Men" as they like to call them.
There were other exhibits like the mirrors, the carousel, the Indy car, Bubble Bee, and the Chihuly glass going through the center of the building.
But our next favorite and final stop for the day was the Treasures of the Lost World. Just from the name I knew the boys were going to spend alot of time in here! They looked at mummies,
scuba dove for cannons,
pretended they were kings,
and helped with an archaeological dig.
Whew, what a busy day! Yes, we stayed until they closed! To say it was worth the drive is an understatement.
Just look at these kids laughing! The boys had a blast and are already asking when can we go again! We have one last outing tomorrow before our Spring Break comes to an end. To think there are only 7 weeks left of school, I think I need to start planning our summer activities and outings ASAP!
