This last weekend was a bit busy, which is why I simply didn’t get around to posting Friday. Life stepped in, asked me to dance, and I obliged. Saturday marked my husband and my 18th wedding anniversary. A lot of anniversaries have come and gone without much fanfare. This one, we made plans, and followed through. We took the kids to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum for the day and had a ball.
So much to see, so much to do, so much to learn, and tons of pictures to take! I actually took over 200 pictures. I wasn’t the only one snapping pictures. My daughter and husband took pictures with their phones too so we have a lot of photos to document the day.
Highlights of the day included getting up close and personal with dinosaurs, the transformers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, taking a trip to China, learning all about religions from all over the world, and goggling amazed at a 43 foot tower of colorful blown glass. As much as I hate waiting for trains to pass, I still managed to enjoy the train exhibit they had that included vintage toy trains and a life size replica you could climb aboard and experience a simulation of traveling down the tracks. Another favorite from the day was the show we took in at the museum’s planetarium. Very cool to sit back and travel through the galaxies and catch a glimpse at how the universe formed, the planets of solar system, and the millions of stars.
Indianapolis is about a 3 hour drive from where we live. On the way home, we stopped at Grissom Air Force Base and took in some of the airplanes they have on display outside. Unfortunately, the museum itself was already closed for the day but we still got to see some pretty cool planes.
Sunday we took the swimming pool down and put it away until next summer. Even though the days are fairly warm, the nights are reaching the 40’s so the days of lazily floating in the pool were numbered anyways. The rest of the day was spent with being lazy, napping, watching movies, laundry, and a run to the grocery store. I was happy to discover that the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame won their football game this week, but unhappy to learn that their starting quarterback, Malik Zaire, was injured and will be out for the rest of the season. Hopefully Coach Brian Kelly has another amazing quarter back to take the reins and lead NotreDame to victory for the rest of the season. GO IRISH!!
